After we posted the Poor Mans Lobster Recipe………..which I know you all will be making for Valentines Day, our conversation was still about the food we served at Waldo Stubbs. It was such a large part of people’s lives, not only the place, but the food. Several readers ask if we had the recipe for Hamburger Soup, which was served every Wednesday along with a Grilled Cheese Sandwich. It was the most popular soup at the restaurant.
Well, we did not have the original recipe, but after much brain-storming, we think we have recreated the recipe. For those of you who remember the soup try it and let us know if we succeeded. If you have noooooo idea what we are talking about, just try it and you’ll know what all the fuss is/was about! Continue reading “Hamburger Soup”
Cinnamon Roll Pancakes with Brown Sugar Bacon
Sunday breakfast…..isn’t it the best breakfast of the week??? You have all the time in the world to relax and enjoy something special. I know a lot of folks like to go out for breakfast, and don’t get me wrong I am one of them………..have I mentioned what a crazy winter it has been here in the mid-west? If not here is winter in a nut shell……..snow, snow. snow……….freezing, freezing, freezing……..did I leave anything out? Given the weather, I have become even more of a home body than I usually am. Seriously, I could stay in the house from Thanksgiving until at least St Patricks Day…….maybe longer depending on the whole groundhog shadow thing. I really, really, hate cold weather. The only thing I hate worse is driving in the snow……… I truly thing I am not cut out for winter! Continue reading “Cinnamon Roll Pancakes with Brown Sugar Bacon”
Poor Mans Lobster
So……… as promised a special meal and story for Valentines Day!
Once upon a time……….isn’t that how all great fairy tales start? When Tim and I first met some 30 odd years ago, we were both in our early twenties and it was the late 70’s. I remember going to a party with a girlfriend and when we arrived I saw the cutest guy in cut off short and tube socks with red stripes……….you really do have to be from that era to understand how totally hot that look was! Fast forward a few years and we both were working for the hottest restaurant – bar- nightclub in the area. Anyone who is of a …….certain age……cough, cough and from this area remembers Waldo Stubbs. It had that Cheers atmosphere…..where everybody knows your name……..The place was always hopping and especially on Friday nights for all you can eat “Poor Mans Lobster”. It was iconic…….more on the food later. Continue reading “Poor Mans Lobster”
