Poconos Eats

I rarely eat a hearty breakfast on any normal day. But I relish it when I do. This is what a whole package of bacon looks like when cooked. Bacon is amazing. And M cooked down romaine lettuce with chicken broth and this is what we got. Cooked romaine? Delicious! There was also scrambled eggs, peaches, and hot dog bun toast to round out this breakfast. It was excellent fuel for our 14-mile bike ride along Lehigh gorge.
When we got back, it was time to eat again. There’s nothing like nature, clean air, and exercise to make you just want to eat all the time. More romaine! And random veggies like green beans, eggplant, and tomatoes.
Corn on the cob! I ate two.
M cooked up some chicken breast with an orange – soy marinade.
We didn’t have much bacon left over for the next morning, so we had to opt for sausage instead.
But the real star of that breakfast was the french toast made from hot dog buns. There was french toast from double fiber bread (!?!) too, but the hot dog buns worked out great! I’m a big fan of just working with what you have, so if hot dog buns is all you have, then by all means, use them!

Frankford Hall

We stopped by Frankford Hall to celebrate Indy Hall’s 4th birthday. The crowd wasn’t the Rittenhouse crowd that K and I had witnessed during our last quick visit. It was also a beautiful night, so being outside was beyond awesome. You order your food at the window and get a number. Then one of the servers will bring everything out to you. As far as beer goes, there are several bars to choose from with a variety of beers.
I asked M how her burger was and she loved it. And they have a large condiment table and she raved about the curry ketchup. I also asked for her pickle, since she didn’t eat it, and damn, this pickle was awesome! I’m not sure if they make these there or if they buy them, but they were super fresh and only lightly pickled and I loved it.
K’s hot bauernwurst was good, but not spicy at all. You get a choice of sauerkraut or cabbage when you order a sausage. He went with the cabbage because I suggested it. It’s good!
And here’s my giant pretzel! It’s big, it’s warm, it’s good. It really does go well with beer. We really had fun. I love the whole picnic tables everywhere and casual outdoor atmosphere. The beer and food treated us all well.

Sausage Sandwiches A La Biker Jim’s

What do you do when you have a packet of sweet italian sausage in the fridge and you have to do something with it? You fry it up!
And luckily you have some onions and peppers hanging around so you cook those up too.
And then you ┬ámake yourself some delicious sausage sandwiches. But then you realize that when you were in Denver you had Biker Jim’s and he used cream cheese as a requisite condiment, so you use the cream cheese that’s in your fridge too. And it becomes an even more glorious sausage sandwich.
