Pomelo at the Orchard – we had never heard of it, but now appreciate Sharlene Froberg’s choice for brunch today. It had been some time since we joined her and we looked forward to it. We would go back there. I had the Breakfast Pizza, and expected something the size of a personal pan pizza. Instead, I got one about 12 inches! It had garlic cream, hollandaise, fresh mozzarella, Schreiner’s sausage, peppers, onions, breakfast potatoes. And plop in the center were two eggs, sunny side up! It was very, very tasty though far more than I could eat. Three-fourths came home, and I shared some of that with Pete Petersen. Continue reading Brunch with Sharlene. My workbench is clear.
We had breakfast this morning at the U.S. Egg restaurant at 2957 W Bell Rd here in Phoenix. I took us there mainly because I wanted their Protein Pancakes (Filled with Wild Maine Blueberries, homemade granola, cinnamon, and silvered almonds), but when I got there I realized it was appropriate for this Independence Day weekend because of their wall art. That flag, made from colored egg cartons, has always made me smile! There are several U.S. Egg restaurants around the Valley, but we have only eaten at this one and the one at 402 E. Greenway Parkway in Phoenix. Continue reading U. S. Egg. 112 today. Workshop parts boxes.
Finally, my permanent bridge is in place. The dentist told me to not bite with those teeth for another 24 hours, while the cement is curing. But after that I should be able to eat as normal. The new bridge has none of the roughness and edges the temporary one had. I must have been good, because the last temporary did not break and did not come loose. The tech had to work hard to remove it. Continue reading New permanent bridge. John is off. Sorting parts.
It is June, and as usual it is getting warm. If you do a Bing search for hottest month in Phoenix you will probably get the following: “The hottest month of the year in Phoenix, Arizona is July with an average daily temperature of 106.2. The second hottest month is August at 104.5 degrees, followed closely by June at 104 degrees, and then September 100 degrees even.” Today we were at a high of 102° – just barely above the average for this date of 100°. So, while for those who do not live in this area those may seem to be high temperatures, they are only a few degrees above average. Continue reading Getting warm. Lizards. Violette sign.
