My 2 Favs, Breakfast, Grandkids...One Smells A Lot Better

I went to ChicagoLand this past weekend to visit my son-in-law, daughter, and grand daughter, and took my youngest daughters with me. Did I discover something incredible!

Breakfast is probably my favorite meal. It ranks just behind lunch, dinner, and snacks. Now keep in mind, I learned a long long time ago...it is impossible to stay overweight without eating. Breakfast is one meal where I can hurt myself. My son-in-law is of the same mindset. I like him.

He told me about a restaurant that has the biggest omelet you have ever seen". I've heard stories like this before. The place is a quaint little place in a strip mall ½ block or so north of 111th & Pulaski in Chicago. It's named "Helen's House of Omelets" (omelet is spelled Omelette in the sign). Was he correct!

I hurt myself on something called a chicken ranchero omelet. I ate until I was positive that I was beached...and then had just a bit more to make sure I was miserable. There was still 60% of the damn thing left. Never in my life have I seen an omelet this big. They claim 5 eggs...I think 10. Soo, if you're going to the Chicago Convention and like breakfast...111th & Pulaski is the place. LMAO...just follow me!

I forget how fast kids grow. My grand daughter will be 21 months the 15th and is she a chip off my block! My daughter is scared...and who can blame her. Thursday my daughter decided to nab a quick shower. She did all the required things...put in a tape of Elmo, prepared a snack, made one last scan to insure all was childproof, left the bathroom door open, and even left the shower curtain partially open.

She scrubbed really fast, lathered up her hair, and I must say...this woman has a head of hair...wow. Anyway, after she lathered up real good she was standing under the head with her arms on the wall rinsing this mane. All at once...there was this tiny smack on her butt, hysterical laughter, and pitter patter of tiny feet out of the room and down the hall. Seems some things could be genetic.

The photo is of my grand daughter. Mind you, I stalked her for 25 minutes to get this shot. LMAO...poor kid. I suspect at some point in time I'll be paying her therapist to get her over flashes.

Glad you had a good time with your family! That will be the one dissapointment in my life - my father would have loved my little girls.
Big ass omlette, huh? I remember there was a place in Florida called the Waffle House. Despite the name, this place had massive egg concoctions. It was always fun gorging myself there.

Daphne I am confused on this one. I love her to death...but I am worried though. Who wants to sleep with a grandpa?

There is a place here in Vegas called the Original House of Pancakes. They make these plate sized omlettes that are about the depth of a pie pan. And all the of their meals are a la carte, so no sides. The first time we went there to eat, we didnt' realize how large the servings were. We ordered our main dish (omlettes for my roomie, crepes for me, and pancakes for my bf) and a few sides, like sausage, bacon, hash browns. OMG! When the food came out, we had to ask for the take home boxes then. We all knew there was no way we would finish. And it was fantastic food to boot. So if any of you ever get to Vegas, make a point of finding this place. It is awesome. And you'll have enough food for your entire day cuz there is no way you're going to be able to finish.

Ana sounds right up my alley. However...I gamble about as skillfully as I screw. Will this place take a personal I.O.U.?

You're granddaughter is adorable! No wonder you are sooo proud!

There is a place here in Oklahoma that serves an 80 oz. steak. It is free if you can get it down in an hour. But you also have to eat the football sized baked potato and a garden plot sized salad. While consumning all of this you might as well call your gastrointerologist. Can you imagine that much meat inside of you?

LOL Cookie...I CANNOT imagine that much meat inside me. In fact, that very thought is why I have never gone to prison!
