in Woodland, WA, reads: “Nothing Goes from the Can to the Pan.” Sounds promising. So, on a day when there is more rain, what do we do? Do we stay in and engage in major RV cleaning? No way! We go out for breakfast.
America’s Family Diner was the Number One-rated restaurant in Woodland on tripadvisor.com.
At another table sat two gentlemen discussing mushroom foraging. And what looks more local than this distinguished looking man with his bright red suspenders and camo hat?
And then there’s Britney’s’ Can’t Decide with a choice of a slice of French toast, a Belgium waffle half or two buttermilk pancakes, fresh homemade hash browns, one slice of thick cut bacon, one slice honey cured ham, one sausage link, two eggs, and toast. Britney is the owner’s thirteen year-old granddaughter who is responsible for the window paintings—in this case, for Halloween.
I chose the spinach, mushroom, and cheese crêpes.
But the best item on the table that morning was the hash browns.
A few days later and with nothing to do other than listen to the rain falling on the RV roof, we returned—this time for lunch. Chuck toyed with the idea of ordering Nate’s Famous Philly with thin sliced steak grilled with fresh onions, peppers, and mushrooms and topped with melted Swiss cheese. Shades of John Kerry! (This may not have resonance to those not living in Philadelphia, but when campaigning for President, he made the mistake of asking for a cheesesteak with Swiss cheese. Giant faux pas! It’s Whiz, provolone, or American. Never Swiss. And he reaped endless scorn for this.)
But instead he went with the Family’s Favorite French Dip which was described as oven roasted beef piled high on a French roll and topped with melted Swiss cheese and served with au jus.
My selection was Angel’s “Dare ya”--a triple decker consisting of grilled ham, prime rib, cheddar and Swiss cheese and fire roasted green chili on grilled Texas toast.
Both the sandwiches came with really good fries, and we added, an again skimpy, side of onion rings. The latter were not good.
