I Wish There Was Toast That Never Goes Cold

In one of my first jobs I worked in an office where a lady (during the break time at around 10-ish) would bring out her cold toast that she'd made before coming to work. I can see it now, all limp and lifeless but at least she was posh enough to have the bread in triangles, but, seriously, COLD TOAST! Fast forward about 30 years and I'm having the same problem at home! If I'm not ridiculously quick spreading my Flora on the toast and then eating it it goes cold within the time it takes to make a cup of tea. I know it's not the end of the world but still.. bloody annoying if you ask me but at least I don't eat cold toast by choice like Teresa did!

Nothing worse than handling something that is limp and lifeless my friend. I don't tend to eat toast, I prefer cereal for breakfast. What I used to hate is when I stayed at guest houses and they would always bring your toast in at the beginning, so after you've had your bowl of cereal, eaten your cooked breakfast and it was time for toast, it was stone cold!

I do love toast racks though (that tend to be in hotels) and I remember having lots of toast in a cute Guest House in Crief, Scotland many years ago. I've never seen so much food at breakfast time before but the Scots love their breakfasts so that might have had something to do with it. Anyway, the reason I'm having to endure toast is I'm out of cereal and cannot be bothered buying some more. I'll leave that lovely task for John at weekend. At least I'm using the bread up. We can't get little loaves in the corner shop and it's very annoying.

I prefer my crunchy nut cornflakes or my coco pops in the morning, or sometimes I go really posh at the weekend and have tesco finest croissants. The Scots love their porridge don't they.

Porridge is gross. I use my Quaker Oats for much more important things like flapjack. They don't half make you 'go' though. I think the next cereal I will have is Cheerios. I can never understand why the makers always have to have really sweeter versions (usually honey) as, surely that defeats the object? I believe kids will have different cereals throughout the week these days, not just the one. 'HAVE CORN FLAKES OR NOWT!' would be my response to moaning kids who think I'm being mean just picking one type of cereal out. Geez, aren't we supposed to be in a recession? People aren't cutting down on foodstuffs are they, judging by the crap they put in their trolleys.

I do not know if it would be worth your time or effort, but there are tiles or stones that you can warm and put a napkin on and put the bread on to keep it warm. Why don't you make the tea first and then the toast?

Yup! Cold toast just isn't as tasty as piping hot toast, when the butter or margarine is all melty.

Exactly. What I should've done is eat the toast immediately instead of multi-tasking like my Mum i.e. making a cup of tea at the same time. Toast with Flora that..yes, has sunken into it but has gone cold..well, it's not nice. Later on this morning I shall eat the toast first..or go out and buy some more cereal, which is why I'm eating toast in the first place!

Ok so why not make the tea first?

I've tried that, same thing happens. I thought it might've been due to the cold plate so I put that in the microwave to warm up..and it worked to a certain extent but not enough so you'd notice. And you wonder why I eat cereal most of the time!

I would suggest trying to remember to spread the butter or what not as it is warm! Though I wouldn't want to eat cold toast ever, either, if I didn't have to!

I tried microwaving the plate and making the tea first, so everything came together all at the same time. Bit of an improvement..but not much!

Oh, how much I hate it, when the toast goes cold in a minute, when I'm struggling to get the margarine out of the fridge or when the phone rings...

I know, it's horrendous. To be honest, I'll be relieved when I can eat cereal instead. I only eat toast when I haven't got any in.

Just thank her and forget about it. If she keeps doing it, tell her you really appreciate it, but you'd rather her not give you toast on a daily basis

Mum says I sound like Karl Pilkington. Same accent even though I moved from Ashton before I could speak (Manchester way, Karl is from Salford originally). I don't know if it's a compliment or not lol. You decide! Please persevere with this, it's brilliant! Karl at his eccentric best! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n9-ZM9DWsPk

Uhh? Cold toast? l.o.l well all I can say that cold toast is always a bummer! Maybe you should make your tea first then your toast.

I love eating toast but I make sure that I eat it as soon as it gets out of the toaster. Eating them hours after is not such a treat. Even if you spread the most delicious spread available, still it ain't the same as having it freshly toasted.
