Yes, we missed last week, the flu hit us hard! We are back to exploring New England Diners this weekend, though.
Since we had a funeral this morning in North Kingston, RI, so we were happy to hit one of our diners on the way home. We stopped at the Jigger’s Hill Diner and Restaurant in West Greenwich, Rhode Island. After a brief wait, we were seated in a quaint diner environment. We all ordered breakfast, I chose the Raspberry Creme French Toast, and it tasted remarkably like the raspberry turnovers with hard sauce we used to make many years ago for a dessert. Even I couldn’t finish the entire serving. The food was delicious, and the timing was perfect as the diner closes in two days for renovations!
Well, it was an all around lousy day for a daytrip. With torrential rains and Lydia sporting a fever, we headed to Modern Diner in Pawtucket, RI. While the neighborhood is not terribly inviting, the food was outstanding. The girls all thought it was 10 out of 10!! Well worth the rainy drive!
Our weekend was a little disrupted by work schedules, so we headed up to the Agawam Diner, in Rowley, MA in the late afternoon. The timing did not allow for any additional day trips or hikes (except for a very quick drive through downtown Newburyport). The diner was charming and classic, the waitress absolutely wonderful and the food was superb. We all got cheeseburgers, fries and then topped it off with their famous pies. In our case, we chose chocolate cream pie and lemon meringue pie. Since we very rarely ever eat pie, this was such a treat! Week three into our diner excursions and we are already hard-pressed to name one better than the next (or better than the previous).
Today I am grateful for Friday night dinners. Every Friday night we have “Breakfast for dinner”. It sure makes the end of the week easier. I am even more grateful tonight since Lieren cooked dinner using her new Belgian Waffle maker that she got for Christmas….
