B is for...
Specifically, this morning, B is for Mom's belated birthday breakfast (with bacon*) at The Queen Bee. Mom's birthday was Thursday and, while we did plenty of celebrating last weekend, we celebrated some more this weekend. We went to the indoor winter farmer's market, browsed through a couple of shops, enjoyed a leisurely breakfast, then assembled some make-ahead meals at Dinner Helpers.
The Queen Bee is one of those places that's open only for breakfast and lunch. It's nothing fancy -- breakfast all day, burgers for lunch -- but it's friendly, clean, and hearty without being too much.
When Maddy was in Pre-K, she brought home a book of recipes for the kids' favorite foods and directions for preparation -- in their own words. Maddy's favorite food was...
*From the Kitchen of Maddy's Mom...
*Get a piece of bacon
*Fry it in the pan
*Wait for a few minutes
*Then you eat it
Adam's Potatoes: Peel them first. Cook them. Eat them.
Two eggs over-medium, corn muffin tops, extra-crispy hashbrowns, and bacon. Mmmm, very bad but also very good. B is also for Beagle Bagel from Two Paws Up Bakery -- my favorite place for dog treats; I also brought home some Cheese Dogs, Honey Bears, Veggie Stars and, of course, Bacon and Egg Piglets.
