@LeviOhPlz A cook at a diner has gotta fry up a couple hundred eggs a day. You would think they’d eventually figure it out, right? Firm white, soft yolk. It’s not rocket science kids! I can do it at home and I only cook eggs a couple times a year. SMH
@LeviOhPlz i agree - over medium is exactly how i like my eggs too, but sometimes even explaining what that means is a challenge (and a red flag) - no, i don’t want sunny side up, no, i don’t want hard fried eggs, etc.
i always am super appreciative whenever i go someplace that gets it right and without a hassle.
@DrWorm@RiotDemon What I hate is when I order an ice cream cone, and they always stuff all that ice cream in it.
I didn’t ask for ice cream! I asked for the cone, dammit!
And they ask, “Do you want chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry?”
I WANT CONE-FLAVOR, YOU IMBECILE!
I’m sure it exists, but I’ve never seen a strawberry-flavored ice cream cone. Just people trying to sneak extra crap in my cone. If I wanted ice cream, I’d order ice cream.
Why is everyone a moron but me?
Eggs scrambled with chopped red onion and peppers on a bed of sauteed baby greens, fruit, lotsa coffee (with heavy cream), fresh orange juice.
Bacon is still on the pig where it belongs.
/giphy pig dirty look
@Fuzzalini@lljk So true! I love going here (central NC), it’s one of my favorite places. There’s practically a guarantee that some older black lady will call me baby or honey, and it makes my freaking day.
Depends on where I go. Our usual spot does the French Toast Club: four triangles of French toast, bacon, and eggs. They also give you fresh fruit and chips & salsa - yes, even with breakfast. I love that place.
Our every-now-and-then spot does the Haystack: biscuits and gravy on the bottom, a layer of home fries over that, with a couple of fried eggs on top.
@rockblossom Yeah, I was wondering who has time or inclination to go out for breakfast. Apparently, it’s everybody but the two of us.
I will definitely order off the breakfast menu if it’s available at dinner, if it’s available on the rare occasion I go out for that meal, either.
@jerk_nugget@Limewater My reasons for breakfast at home are 3D: diet, distance, and disposition. Celiac, so there aren’t many places I can safely eat out. I live in the country, so even the nearest diner that serves breakfast is 18 miles away, and one that is safe is about 25. I’m also unfit to deal with people in the morning before ingestion of some solid protein and sufficient caffeine. The first two can be fixed by selling my house and moving, but the third, alas, cannot. I can only go out for breakfast after I’ve had breakfast. I suppose I really need to move to Hobbiton, where the concept of Second Breakfast is understood.
@Limewater@rockblossom i can understand that. we live in the boston area so there are lots of places that have great food (and i don’t have the added issue of dietary restrictions) but you couldn’t pay me to go there on a weekend morning where it’s super crowded with long wait times and no parking. so when we do go out to breakfast it’s because we’re on vacation or visiting parents or something where it isn’t overwhelming and won’t have the fun sucked out of it before we even get in the door
at our old apartment we had one place that was excellent that would deliver breakfast, that was great. our current place doesn’t have any breakfast delivery options though, alas. we did have a local bagel place that would deliver fresh bagels and cream cheese and lox, but sadly they decided they no longer wanted to work with grubhub so there went that. (and again i’m not inclined to drive down there myself and deal with people and parking before i’ve eaten!)
