  1. Your dining eperience sounded so good my mouth is watering :)
    What a nice change and a break from cooking yourself!

  2. I just read about Walnut Creek earlier this evening, but can't remember where. Ah, the joys of forgetfulness and age!

    The review was good - now I'm going to go off to sleep dreaming about the burger or, better yet, the hot beef dip that you ate. I'd have selected this above the burger!

  3. That looks yummy...I could go for a burger this morning with my coffee...LOL.
    I LOVED Lucy's post btw...she is so cute!

  4. Wow, I've always wanted to go to an American diner exactly like that one!
    Mmmmmm, that looks so good and I bet it tasted good too! :)
    Glad you had a good time, from Meg and the cats xxx

  5. It sounds as if you had a really nice time! I wish I could get MY husband to cook, but all he accedes to is occasional scrambled eggs! When we go out, it's because I don't want to cook!

    I love 50s decor and music, and I can imagine you two humming along! Thanks for the cozy and nostalgic post!

  6. Oh that looks yummy! When I lived in Naples, Fl they had and "orinial" Mels Diner too...I am sure it really was not the original - lol. But they had great food too!

  7. Hi Cindy, I have a little award for you, so you might want to stop by and pick it up. Catherine

  8. It looks and sounds like you both enjoyed yourself a lot there. Humming along with the juxebox, always a good thing! ;-)

    I like my onion rings with ketchup too. I have no idea what au jus is, we probably call it something else over here.
