Just to wrap up the weekend of eatin’ in the Berkshires, we had breakfast on Sunday morning at Bob’s Country Kitchen on Rt. 7 in Lanesbrough, Ma. It was crowded when we arrived and we waited in a long line that went out the door. During our wait, Hubby grappled with his newly minted ‘Blueberry Pancake Principle’; he believes that it is pointless to order blueberry pancakes while on vacation. He feels it’s a lose-lose situation; if they are really good, then he is sad as he will mostly like not be in the area to get them again any time soon. If the pancakes are bad, then he has just eaten bad pancakes. It’s a solid principle in theory, however it lacks in practice. Hubby, of course does not have the willpower to not order pancakes, so I guess he is doomed.
We finally get seated and he orders the ‘big boy’ – 3 eggs, 3, bacon, 3 sausages, toast and home fries. I get (what else?) blueberry pancakes. Our plan is to share. Finally, we found some good diner fare; the eggs, bacon and sausage are all tasty, the homefries are cooked through! Most importantly, the pancakes were the optimal amount of goodness, fluffy and tasty enough to enjoy, but not better than the Delux. The fruit pies were supposedly homemade, but we passed on them to save a little room for soft serve on our way out of town.
