Where’s Your PJ’s Speakies:
What you are working and don’t have your pajamas on? Come on Guys and Dolls today is “WEAR YOUR PAJAMAS TO WORK DAY.” Can you really see that happening we’d be out the door in a minute however, fantasy wise it’s not a bad idea to imagine. Wake up Joey Z and start pounding those keys.
For our food holiday we honor Eggs Benedict, to me I always thought Eggs Benedict was only for the wealthy and polished off with a flute of champagne. Eggs Benedict is a dish consisting of two halves of an English muffin, with ham or bacon, poached eggs and Hollandaise sauce. There are a few claims on how the dish came to be. One was by Lemuel Benedict, a retired Wall Street stock broker who walked into the Waldorf Hotel looking for a cure for his hangover which was buttered toast, poached eggs, bacon and Hollandaise sauce. Finally in 1967 a Mabel C. Butler of Massachusetts related the story of Mrs. Le Grand Benedict who dined every Saturday at Delmonico’s in NYC. One evening she wanted something different than the usual fare suggesting eggs on an English muffin with ham, Hollandaise sauce and some truffles on top thus the Eggs Benedict came about. Who knows what story to believe but if you are a fan of Eggs Benedict order some today? I’ve eaten Eggs Benedict on several cruises Roe have taken. The first time was delicious the others were hit and miss. I guess I prefer my eggs over medium, home fries, bacon crisp or sausage and toast.
Well I guess I’d better face reality today, no eggs for me nor seeing PJ’s at work. Have a great day Speakies.
