Yuummm. Buscuits with gravy is delicious. Not particularly fattening unless you do almost no excercise all day. It`s my favourite breakfast (though I prefer bacon gravy) and I`m not fat. (115 lbs, 5`7").

Though I`m not sure I would eat it from this place. =/ I prefer to know that my food was made somewhat fresh, and not wonder how long it`s been sitting there.

WHAT, no devonshire?[/quote]

The cream in the scones is very Devonshire, unless I`m missing something.

That`s the essence of Devonshire cream tea - cream. Lots of cows + lots of really good grazing = lots of really rich cream. Modern technology has made it irrelevant now, but in the past you couldn`t get the stuff outside the area in which it was made - a horse and cart can`t get dairy produce very far before it goes off.

Tea (a drink) isn`t the same as tea (a meal). Tea would be drunk with tea, but the tea associated with Devon is not tea. :)

England - home of confusing language for at least 1500 years!

To me, you`re eating scones in the traditional English way. Fresh cream is also commonly used here.




Also, as you can see in the pic, currants or sultanas are often added to the mix.

I agree. I think she probably has relatively wide hips and maybe quite sturdy legs, but the camera angle and distance was obviously chosen to exaggerate that.

The idea that she`s fat is clearly proven wrong by the shape of her upper body, particularly her narrow waist.

Hourglass figure, exaggerated by forced perspective.

@The picture of the naked girl:
She`s weirdly proportioned:

On the one hand her upper body is normal. She has normal sized arms, head, fairly flat stomach and what can be seen as either large or saggy breasts. I`m going for large, in this case.

On the other hand, her hips a really wide and she has thick thighs and legs.

Her butt could be large and perky, large and luscious, large and saggy, large and shapeless or just large and flat. In any case, with hips like that it`s gonna be large. Not a bad thing, if it`s scenario 1 or 2. It`s not known though

Her neck is not seen, but from how the rest of her upper body looks, it should be normal.

There is the distinct possibility that this picture either has been shopped, or photographed from a very weird angle. She could also be doing a weird pose. She may look worse, she may look better. Her thighs may not be as thick as they look, they may be thicker. All I know is that I would.

Aha. I see the problem.

"In North America a "biscuit
" is a small quick bread that is made with flour, butter (or lard or shortening), baking powder (soda), milk (buttermilk), eggs, and sometimes a small amount of granulated white sugar...The American biscuit is very similar to the British scone."

Biscuits

So I`m eating American biscuits. I just call them British biscuits for some reason. And I call British biscuits American biscuits.

So I guess bram was half right...

Scones are cakes around here. I`ve just read one definition that sort of makes sense - it`s cake if you use sugar while making the scone and it`s bread if you don`t.

I wouldn`t be surprised. There are differences within the UK, so it would be weird if there weren`t within the USA.

It took quite some time in legal cases to define "biscuit" and "cake" in the UK. Seriously. It became a legal issue because of differences in tax, but it`s always been a grey area. The working definition boils down to what happens when it goes off. If it goes soft, it`s a biscuit. If it goes hard, it`s a cake.

Other than the UK legal ruling on whether Jaffa Cakes are cakes or biscuits (seriously, that really happened) it`s all up in the air with some products straddling the varying definitions.

Siyanor: What you call British biscuits would definitely be called cakes here in Britain. They look like a light scone to me. They`re certainly the typical shape for scones in Britain - the triangular "slice of pie" shape you show for a scone is something I`ve only seen fairly recently over here.

I guess fat is subjective.

To me, a fat person is someone who is very obviously overweight. With a gut, flabby arms, a full face that may or may not include a double chin, big ass, big thighs, big tits (and not the nice kind, either, haha).

All this girl really seems to have is big hips/thighs, also known as pear-shaped. She`s just average to me. *shrug*

[quote]British biscuits are what we would call shortbread[/quote]

Hmm...I think that might be only the the kind of biscuit that we call shortcake.

My impression is like this:

USA cookie - slightly soft, a little bendy, a little chewy.

UK biscuit - rigid, slightly crumbly (or very crumbly in some types), slightly crunchy.

USA biscuit - dense cake, a scone of the type used in Britain for the type of dish known as a cobbler (a sort of thick stew with this kind of scone on top, i.e. USA gravy on biscuits is much like this turned upside down).

USA gravy on biscuit stuff reminds me of something common in medieval British eating - the trencher. Slightly stale bread used as a plate.

Made in Britain to a British recipe by a British company and the best selling biscuit in Britain...they`re not American.

As for Hob-Nobs, as far as I know they`re not even sold in the USA. I know of several people who`ve posted some to the USA as a result of threads in forums talking about differences between the UK and the USA.

[quote]What do you call the soft, round, buttery goodness that I call a British biscuit?[/quote]

Could be all sorts of things. There are British biscuits like that. Scotland is noted for buttery biscuits. There are also European biscuits like that.

If you flex it, does it break or bend? If it bends, it`s not a British biscuit. It could be a British cake, though.

"Sausage gravy doesn`t sound particularly good. . ."

Sausage gravy, when made well, is delicious. On buttermilk biscuits, even better.

Its a fine way to start the day - for people who are going to do hard physical work and burn a lot of calories. Couch potatoes and chair jockey`s will get fat on rice cakes and lettuce.

You`re getting the two confused. I said an American biscuit is like a scone. If a scone is crunchy, than you need a new scone.

British biscuits are what we would call shortbread, like girl scout cookies.

British biscuits are also not soft. Some are crunchy, others aren`t rigid enough to be crunchy, but they`re never soft unless they`ve gone stale.

I`m almost sure that American biscuits would be classed as cakes in Britain.

[quote]And I have never seen a British biscuit dipped in chocolate, not even once.[/quote]

That`s odd, because it`s extremely common. Usually only on one side, though. I think the best selling type of biscuit in Britain is chocolate digestive. Either that or Hob-Nob (which are also available half-coated in chocolate).

I guess if you consider being from somewhere to not have any impact on a person`s thought process. Many of my Korean friends live in America but are still distinctly Korean (having been born there and having grown up there)

So where a person is from has a very large impact, at least equal to where a person is.

So anyway, if someone from somewhere else can say someone isn`t fat then it contributes enough to say "hey, it isnt JUST americans that would say this girl is not fat"
