The Biggest Breakfast

breakfast1.jpg

The biggest breakfast took hours to cook after a long night’s sleep. The plate for the biggest breakfast was actually more the size of a lake. There were so many fried eggs on the biggest breakfast in the world that it took a dozen eggs to lay them … so many sausages that they rolled over and squashed the cat. There were so many tomatoes on the biggest breakfast in the world that you could play ten – pin bowling with them. So many mushrooms that they were more the size of umbrellas. The biggest breakfast in the world was so big that it took three days to cook, the preparation started a week earlier. There was enough milk on the biggest breakfast in the world to feed three dozen cats … it came from a whole herd of cows. The biggest breakfast in the world was so big that the washing – up took a week … the forks were actually pitchforks and the spoons were actually spades. There was so much toast on the biggest breakfast in the world that is used up five hundred loaves … so much butter and jam that the bees came from every honey pot for miles around. The biggest breakfast in the world was so big that it fed one thousand people … and they were still having titbits a month later.

234 + 45 + 45 + 345 + 3254 = 3 923; 3.14 x (28 x 28) = 2461.76 cm 2; 45 x 345 = 15 525; 56.7 x 3 = 170. 1;5 550 / 500 = 11.1 (or twelve cans)
