Blarney Stone

It's Irish week. I did everything Irish this St. Patricks Day but "Kiss the Blarney Stone" an old Irish tradition. I like the Irish, I like Irish Whiskey and I like Irish Folk Music. One of my favorite scenes in the Titanic movie is the Third Class Dance scene. Happy St. Patrick's week to you.

This is the EGGS BENEDICT @ Providence in Oakley just $8. The hollandaise sauce had a hint of lemon and was nice and creamy just the way I like it. The potatoes were cooked perfectly. I order this dish often and as I told David as I was leaving it was one of the best I have had ever.
