Breakfast at Mom’s

The last time I was at Mom’s for breakfast I’m sure my father paid. So, it’s been a really long time. I remember coming here when I would go with him to work on the weekend when his Oldsmobile dealership was just down the street on Military Road.

20120909-092702.jpg I ordered the #7 which includes coffee or tea (I love the little coffee carafe set on my table), 2 eggs (I get mine over easy so I can dip my Italian toast into the yoke), ham, bacon or sausage and home fries.

One of my most enduring memories is of the table side jukeboxes. Remember those?

Lemon Chiller

20120811-204117.jpgThis drink is very refreshing. It is easy to make:

Fill a highball glass with ice.

Fill halfway with good lemonade, one with pulp.

Pour an inch of Bourbon and top with Lemoncello.

Stir gently. Garnish with mint and a lemon wedge if desired.

Cheers!
