    yeah! well tunisian/french substitute for dairylea whatever it may be called, all tastes the same lol.....i dont really eat a lot of tunisian food these days, i liked it at first but now i have gone off the spices and stuff which is a shame as it looks so nice.
    the only traditional thing i can eat without being ill is brika!

    No no no, the best breakfast is eggs, bacon cumberland sausages and fried bread, Heinz ketchup or HP brown sauce. Mrs and Miss Cav always bring back a suitcase full for the freezer.

    @ Kaylee: I think what you describe is Halwa
    I go for healthy stuff in the morning - yoghurt, bread, fruit,.... I'm not English and I can not understand the fun of a hot meal in the morning ;-)

    We ate the following for breakfast when we lived there:

    Freshly squeezed orange juice, fried/hard boiled eggs, fresh baguette, coffee, olive oil either with the eggs or with cheese triangles. We also occassionally had apricot jam on the baguette.
