If a diary and a journal are often the same thing, then why isn't called "The Journal of Anne Frank"?

Maybe it is. New conspiracy theory?

Is it true that the Irish cook their breakfast in an inch (~ 2.5 mm) of bacon fat (or lard or whatever)? That's eggs, sausages (aka bangers), diced potatoes (aka Potatoes O'Brien) and toast (or bread ... then it become toast) all together in a cast iron skillet. I remember reading it in some Irish cookbook and I couldn't believe the Irish would do something like they had absolutely no concern for cholesterol or anything like that.

I never had that but I do know my mam used to make us fried bread, which is literally what it sounds like - piece of bread face down in the pan cooked in greasy oil. You have not lived till you've tasted fried bread! Yum! Course, you may not live long AFTER you've tasted fried bread, but it is worth it.

I feel that cookbook recipe may have been referring to the old rural cooking. I know skillets were used (my mother didn't have one but on the old farms and such they would all have them) and there was absolutely no concern whatever for such things as cholesterol: most probably couldn't spell it; those who could, likely considered it an English plot to keep us from becoming big and strong. I imagine if my aunt were still alive she might remember such things, but I doubt it's a feature of cooking these days. Maybe over in the West, where time stands still.
