Mom meets Julie
Another night, another great show, two shows actually, both of them virtually sold out, at the Ram’s Head Tavern in Annapolis, Maryland, performed by my husband. I had invited Julie, well-known Baltimore cook, author and designer of the delightful blog, Kitchenography to join me; she planned to but got held up at a birthday party and wasn’t able to make it.
However, I was determined not to miss the opportunity to meet up with Julie face to face, after reading and enjoying her blog all these months, and the two of us put our virtual heads together this morning and found the quintessential diner in Glen Burnie, Maryland, not too far from our motel and our route back home to Pittsburgh (Bill’s and my motel, that is, not Julie’s and my motel). Here we are at the Honey Bee Diner, where they cooked my eggs over medium perfectly. Julie ordered a flour tortilla wrap filled with egg, green peppers, mushrooms, and scrapple, but after a few bites she opined that these were foods that really should not be combined in one dish. Perhaps she should have stuck with traditional diner food.
The coffee was hot, they served it with real half & half and kept it coming, the head waitress looked like she had been working there for at least 40 years, and the parking lot was full of pick-up trucks—what more can you ask for in a diner? Oh, and it was great to meet Julie; there aren’t too many of us bloggers of, how shall I say it, a certain age. I think we need to support each other and stick together. Not that we can’t hold our own with you young people—we can! (Can’t we? She asks, in a desperate and pathetic bid for reassurance…)
