My husband Steven had a rare Saturday off on the 31st; he had requested it for the murder mystery (which I believe I mentioned once or twice). We celebrated with breakfast out at Heidelberg Cafe in Herkimer, NY. For another reason, we wanted to purchase some yummy rolls for Easter dinner on Sunday.
We got an early start, to beat the crowd, but were not there at the crack of seven, when they open. There were plenty of tables available. Some neighbors already enjoying breakfast said hello (I love small-town living). We took a table for two, and a waitress almost immediately asked what we wanted to drink. We both asked for a cup of coffee and a glass of water. Looking over the menu, I noticed some lunch choices that sounded delicious. I’ve only had breakfast at the Heidelberg. I’ll have to expand my horizons.
We continued twinning when we ordered food: two eggs over medium and sourdough toast. YUM! We enjoyed listening to the local radio station while we ate (I’ll have to write a blog post about that radio station one day soon; it is a recent addition to the Mohawk Valley). We also discussed how may rolls to purchase, counting on our fingers how many were expected at my Mom and Dad’s for dinner. A dozen and a half sounded good to me.
For once we refrained from getting any goodies other than the rolls. I had a bad moment when I saw the English Tea Cookies — I LOVE them! But I am far enough from my weight loss goals.
I’m afraid this is a rather dull post. In my defense, I am waiting for Steven to get home for dinner. It will consist of sandwiches made with Heidelberg rolls and leftover ham from Easter dinner. I’m SO HUNGRY! But I have proven to myself that I can compose a blog post while hungry. I also avoided having a Monstrous Monday, so I will content myself with that. No promises for Tuesday, though.
Heidelberg Cafe is located at 3056 State Route 28, Herkimer, NY, phone number 315-866-0999.
