Oh friends – I have a good one for you today. But for some reason, mom says I can’t be part of it. She wants to talk about it. So without further ado – take it away mom ❤
Thanks Bacon. Friends, for obvious reasons in the pictures below you can tell why I didn’t want Bacon here today. No oinker should be around alcoholic beverages – LOL. No really there is b.a.c.o.n. involved in this posting and I didn’t want the little guy to get his feelings hurt. Carrying on with our Chicago, Illinois trip several months ago, I wanted to share a breakfast place that we went to for some fabulous food. There is a restaurant close to my sister called Richard Walker’s Pancake House. If you are near one, RUN to it. They have the most fab food ever.
Of course every good breakfast needs to start with a solid drink. Today was no exception. We are on vacation and vacation knows no time. My sister started with a Blood Mary with a slice of bacon. THUD! To say this restaurant has fabulous bacon is an understatement! Mix that bacon with vodka and you have a party starting up right there and then. I started with a Mimosa… gotta keep that orange juice flowing, right? And of course the hub was the designated driver – snorts – so he had a Coke Zero straight up.
The muffin you see in the picture – that is a carrot cake muffin. Gobble nom nom. It was delicious! We cut it all up and shared it together. All it was missing was some cream cheese icing on top of it.
What we ate for entrees:
My sister went for the pancake looking picture. That’s actually potato pancakes that was made from Idaho potatoes with a tad of fresh onion and served with applesauce and sour cream. Now, before you go eeww, you have to try it before you knock it. I was like yeah okay until I was personally hand fed a bite with sour cream. Now I can’t get them out of my mind and want some…daily! So yes upon our return trip to Chicago, this place is on the list for some potato pancakes.
I went boring style with scrambled eggs with cheese and bacon. Okay the bacon wasn’t boring. It was the most delicious bacon I’ve ever tasted here in the states and that’s saying a lot.
The hub unit went for the Classic Eggs Benedict. Underneath that sinful hollandaise sauce was canadian bacon and poached eggs. He made more grunting noises eating that meal than certain people make on certain television shows. That’s all we are going to say about that – HAHAHAH
So I gotta ask – what was your favorite meal/picture?

This morning started off normal. I got mom up for breakfast like I do around 6:30AM. I ate and mom she was a little different. She didn’t fix her cereal and eat with me. That was odd. Then it happened. Mom went into the fridge to get cream for her milk. That’s what started the uh-oh we have a problem situation. Instead of putting milk into her coffee, she put orange juice in it. I tried to tell her but she had her eyes closed. Very strange. But don’t worry. Once she tasted that coffee, they opened up pretty quickly.
Then, after she remade her coffee, we went into the front room to cuddle and watch the morning news. Usually we do this for about 20-30 minutes before she starts to get ready for work. But today, mom fell asleep. Okay – don’t fuss. I fell asleep too.
So there we were, asleep on the sofa. All peaceful. Dad was asleep in the bedroom still. We were all in sleepy land until this awful ringing started. It was mom’s personal cell phone. She got up to get it and in her dazed state, she answered by saying the name of her work. Snorts. It then dawned on her where she was. Assure me that your humans have done this too.
Thankfully mom’s cell phone rung because it was now after 8:00 AM and mommy has to be at the worky place at 9:00 AM. WOW – talk about a race with the clock. I’m not sure I have ever seen mommy move this fast. She raced to the bathroom for her shower and I went and got daddy up.
Getting daddy up is always a treat for me. Just imagine and let me paint you the picture. Your asleep in your bed, snoring and dreaming of delightful things. All of a sudden a little pig walks into your room snorting. I walk over to the side of your bed in full force bunting you with my snout and pulling at your blankets. Yeah, I know. Snorts – it’s not dad’s favorite way to wake up. He kept asking me why I was still up? Cause you see, after breakfast mommy usually puts me back down in my room for a early morning nap. With me getting daddy up, he knew something was wrong.
He put me down, mom raced out of the bathroom like she was on fire and sat at her vanity. The next thing we knew, mom the tornado left for work.
But I’m telling you. We may have a problem with mom at work. She didn’t start off too well this morning. I just bet you that she is working really, REALLY hard right now at her desk – NOT.
