Sunday breakfast spot

Most Sundays I go out to breakfast. My favorite restaurant for breakfast is Sully’s Cafe in downtown Milwaukie. Everything is fresh, made from scratch and local whenever possible. Once a month they have for the special a fresh Dungeness crab leg omelet. The omelet is filled with spinach or asparagus, cheese and tomatoes. It is topped with about 8 big crab legs and a light Hollandaise sauce. It is really good and like with most of their breakfast dishes I usually have leftovers.

Sully’s is small, only about 10 tables inside and 3 outside. That’s one of the reasons I like it. The restaurant has a lot of regular customers. We talk to each other like we really know each other when in reality we only see each other eating breakfast and make some small talk.




This is one of the many hanging flower baskets along the streets of downtown MIlwaukie.



The photo below is of Gabi one of the waitresses. Gabi told me that she just registered to continue her college education, she is majoring in finance. It’s been a struggle for her but she keeps going even if she only takes a couple of classes a term. Good for her is what I tell her in my pep talks. All of the current waitresses happen to be Hispanic. There is a mother and daughter who work at Sully’s. Once I found out they were mother and daughter I wondered why I never noticed the resemblance before.


This was taken in the “Beauty” mode which “Enhances the skin tone and texture”. I did take a shot in the regular mode and I could see a little difference in the two photos. Gabi is very pretty and photogenic.



This is George. My daughter did not use to like him because he can be moody. Now Tara and Kelly think he is the funniest guy once they got to know him. Oh, yes Sully’s has become Tara and Kelly’s favorite place to eat breakfast too. George bought Tara and Kelly breakfast on their wedding anniversary without knowing it was a special day for them. He is a nice guy!



Delicious corned beef hash enough for leftovers for breakfast the next day.

Omelet in a bag

This is another interesting email I got recently. I made an omelet Saturday morning following these directions. I used Egg Beaters instead of real eggs though. I added smoked cheddar, asparagus and sliced roast beef. My bag tended to want to float some so I turned it over every few minutes. It was pretty good and no pan to clean up.

Subject: Ziploc Omelet

No muss no fuss no cleanup.


ONLY QUESTION I HAVE IS THE ZIPLOC BAG IS IT A SPECIAL BAG OR ANY ZIPLOC???? The answer is YES – Use the Freezer Bags – ANY Freezer bag.

Crack 2 eggs into the bag (not more than 2) shake to combine them.
Put out a variety of ingredients such as: cheeses, ham, onion, green pepper, tomato, hash browns, salsa, etc.
Add prepared ingredients of choice to bag and shake. Make sure to get the air out of the bag and zip it up.
Place the bags into rolling, boiling water for exactly 13 minutes. You can usually cook 6-8 omelets in a large pot.

For more, make another pot of boiling water.
Open the bags and the omelet will roll out easily.
Nice to serve with fresh fruit and coffee cake.
Imagine having these ready the night before, and putting the bag in boiling water while you get ready.
And in 13 minutes, you got a nice omelet for a quick breakfast!!!
