My family isn't large. It consists of four members. But
each member of owe family has his own tastes and interests.
For example, my brother is fond of sports. So early in the
morning he goes jogging. That's why he has nothing to eat
before it, because it would be bad for him to eat before exercises.
But when he comes back, he has a shower and is more than
ready for breakfast. He always needs a cup of coffee to really
wake him up. His breakfast usually consists of a bowl of
cereal with milk and sugar. This he follows by toasts and
juice. My father eats the same as my brother.
My mother has a lighter breakfast of just youghurt and a
grapefruit. As for me, a cup of tea is enough for breakfast.
And my mother sometimes scolds me for it, because it's
important to have a really goods breakfast.
We don't have our main meal at lunch time. My father
takes sandwiches with him to work. To be healthy, he also
eats fruit. My mother is able to be more varied in her lunches,
because she is a housewife. It means that she can prepare what
she likes. Her favourite dish is roast meat. As she likes to
bake, there is always something tasty at home.
Our evening meal is usually eaten at 7 o'clock. The main
course is often meat with vegetables. Sometimes we eat pizza
or pasta with delicious sauce. We try to eat our main meal
together. In our busy lives it is the one time of day when we
sit down and have a good talk.
