The Breakfast Of Champions
Before I start, just a small announcement. Today is one whole year since I moved to Canada, so woohoo to me. It has been tough to say the least, but hitting this one year mark is encouraging.
And now to today’s post. It’s another one from Windsor. As I mentioned in my previous Windsor post, I spent one of the one and a half days of our weekend trips to Windsor in bed. Hence the fact that I don’t have that much to write about, but we did have a nice walk on the Windsor riverside and a hearty country breakfast…so this a Windsor post- breakfast edition/ review type thing.
Our friends took us to the Whistling Kettle for breakfast. A very simple almost truckstop like diner. It may not be known for it’s interior but I’m sure it’s known for it’s huge breakfast portions for under $10. What else is there to say? That pretty much hit the spot, right?
If you happen to be in Windsor and breakfast enthusiastic, this is the place to hit. With the huge breakfast you get endless refills of free coffee (Canadian, but still).
If you ever watched the movie Pleasantville, this breakfast will remind you of that. Specifically the scene where the mother prepares what is descibed as a well balanced breakfast, but in reality a quicker road to high cholesterol and clogged arteries. It may not be the healthiest of choices, but it will definatley fill you up for the rest of the day.
We ordered the country breakfast, which had everything included. Now listen to this: 3 eggs, and style you wish, ham, bacon, 2 sausages, pancakes, potatoes or hashbrowns and tosted, buttered bread with an endless variaty of jams and marmalades. Can you say death by grease.
It maybe greasy and unhealthy, but what a nice way to enjoy breakfast with your loved ones, family style.
