The first set of photos I took weeks ago while on an errand into the heart of Reading, Pennsylvania. Now Reading has a fairly high per capita crime rate, so it's not my favorite place to go. However, finding and having brunch at this diner made my travels that day happy.
You see, I have this love affair with diners, in case you didn't already know. If I see one, it's hard for me to pass on by, so I stopped.
As with any new diner, if I am having breakfast or lunch I give it the cheese omelet test. This place passed the test, and served some fairly delicious and non-greasy hash brown potatoes on the side, too.
I'm still upset, though, that I wasn't able to get a photo of that decadent looking pastry cabinet sitting just three feet across the aisle from my booth. I truly debated just eating a meal from that cabinet and skipping the eggs. Coulda, shoulda.
In other food news, the husband/lover/best friend was NOT a happy diner at a recent stop for lunch at our local McDonald's. (Not a good dining choice, but for whatever reason that day we needed a quick meal.)
Well anyway, the next time I looked over there that burger of his was gone, and we were on our way.
It wasn't too long though before I started noticing some restaurant signs that were a bit "off."
I was wondering if the "D" from "SERVED" had fallen down below the sign, but after passing this same sign many times over the next several weeks, I've just decided that either the manager is not very smart or does not care to fix the error.
Here's another one I am wondering about:
I was OK with the sign in general until I got to the red letters on the bottom line. 39? 324? I thought perhaps the numbers referred to a date range, like March 9 to March 24, but I was reading this sign much later than March.
The young people laughed a lot, played yard games, and ate and grazed until almost midnight. I love having them come to our place.
For my final food related tidbit, I've found a three ingredient recipe I'll be making tomorrow. That's my kind of recipe, and I think I can even make it allbymyself, on one leg.
Stay tuned for the tasty details!
