This morning I was able to indulge in what has been an annual treat for me since we moved to the area: the Herkimer Elks Lodge Breakfast.
The Elks hold weekly breakfasts every January to fund their projects for the year. And every year, I go eat a yummy breakfast and write a blog post about it. Sometimes more than one (well, I get hungry again, and I always need a new blog post). Steven has been scheduled to work every Sunday, so I was without a date. Luckily, my friend Diane agreed to accompany me today.
For $9 we could get juice, coffee, eggs, white or wheat toast, pancakes, baked beans, home fries with or without onions, and bacon or sausage. I passed on the pancakes; Diane declined the beans. She chose cranberry juice while I had orange. We both chose scrambled eggs and bacon.
The Elks all seemed to be having a fun time being diner staff for the day. The customers were enjoying themselves as well. Friends often meet at these community events, especially in a small town like ours. The food was yummy, and Diane and I were able to catch up on each other’s lives.
The breakfasts continue January 17 and 24, from 8 to 11 a.m. at the Elks Lodge, Mary Street, Herkimer, NY. If you’re in the area and like a good breakfast, I encourage you to check it out.
