Biscuits and Gravy or Waffles – The Traveller’s Choice

Well, we just spent the first night of our spring break road trip in the States. We stopped at Lacey, Washington. It’s just across the street from Olympia, literally. Our hotel has a wonderful breakfast room with waffles; biscuits and gravy; boiled eggs; juices; cold and hot cereals; fresh fruit; pastries and bagels; and…French Vanilla cream for the coffee. Big sigh! I am surprised that there isn’t any yogurt. What will be my diet-friendly breakfast? Oatmeal?

I knew this was going to be a different stop when we went out at 8 pm for supper. There was a Denny’s right behind us so off we went. The lounge there had happy hour from 4 pm ’til closing. Norm and I looked at each other and almost in chorus, said, “Denny’s has a lounge?” And that’s the door we went in. Yep, it was a bar! And it had Denny’s menus. There was beer on sale for $1.50 a glass. PBR. I couldn’t figure out what PBR was but Norm figured it out – Pabst Blue Ribbon. The price made beer cheaper that pop. Sigh, I had to have a beer. And grilled chicken. It was nice and no bread or potatoes; grilled veggies and salad (Dr Fretz would have been proud of me).

waffleBut now it’s breakfast. The coffee isn’t too bad with milk in it. I pride myself on being a coffee snot and this isn’t a Pacific dark roast but I’m happy with whatever caffeine is offered. There is the French vanilla cream but the sugar content can’t be good for me. Milk will do. Now, waffles or biscuits and gravy? It’s a holiday so maybe…. more to follow over the next few days.

Thanks for listening.  ;D  Diane
