second breakfastPosted: January 17, 2013
Hobbits, those imaginary fellows invented by Tolkien, used to enjoy breakfast, and then second breakfast. I admit that sometimes I enjoy rising and eating breakfast and then taking a little nap, arising just in time for lunch. That could be second breakfast.
Another local restaurant in Naperville called Egg Harbor sits near the river and on the way home from the hospital. After a visit to the hospital, ( hopefully less of them are looming ), it’s the perfect place to stop for a treat.
It’s almost always busy, and on warm days in the summer weekends, it’s packed, but the weekdays I have been there it shares a lively energy and flow of people that’s just right for a quick repast. They have specials, and elaborate gluten free choices, but nothing so exotic like a sloppy joe omelet at the Pancake Cafe.
They call it egg harbor, and they do eggs perfectly. I always start with the strawberry-orange juice ( fresh squeezed ) and then a cinnamon roll followed by biscuits and sausage gravy.
Today I celebrated with a variation of eggs benedict, an English muffin, with corned beef hash on top, then hollandaise sauce with a perfect poached egg on top. My daughter who is trim and fit, enjoyed a BLT variation which included a small omelet in the sandwich. All that and a cinnamon roll warm from the oven… we were ready for home, a nap, a run, and then second breakfast of course.
May you celebrate life’s small victories too.
