Eat butter first, and eat it last, and live till a hundred years be past."
Old Dutch proverb

I love butter. I love cream. I love wine, garlic and everything in between. From pepper to salt and veggies to meat, enjoy my ramblings on everything I eat!

Diner #1: Blue Moon Cafe

We didn't venture far for our first diner destination, the Blue Moon Cafe in Baltimore, Md. Situated in a, shall we say, "transitional" neighborhood, the cafe is an unassuming brick building painted in blue. We waited about an hour to be seated (about an hour less than usual, we were told by the tattoo-adorned owner), and were more than ready to start feasting. For a savory dish, we ordered the juevos rancheros: two eggs over a tortilla, topped with cheddar cheese and wickedly spicy tomatillo sauce. No wussing out at this joint. Accompanying the eggs were hash browns, and these weren't just any hash browns. They were probably the butteriest has browns this side of the Mississippi. Crispy and light despite the butter, they paired perfectly with the eggs and could probably kill you if consumed on a regular basis.

For "dessert" we had Cap'n Crunch French Toast. What?! Yes, that's right, Cap'n Crunch French Toast. If decadence had a physical form, this would be it. The inner layers of the toast hid the Cap'n Crunch which gave each bite a great contrast of textures from the bread. Served with a topping of blueberries, strawberries, pineapple, fresh whipped cream and powdered sugar, our vision seemed blurred from a sugar overdose after finishing the last bite.

How much did this glorious meal cost? $18. That's it. I think it's dangerous that this place is so close to home...
