Linky Recognition Open Post

Yesterday's Lunch Diner Lingo Winners
  • First to Post - Denise at Denise's Den
  • Most Creative - Susan at West of Mars
  • First with Most Correct - Shannon at Chicken's Life
  • All Correct and Creative - Skeezix's Scratching Post

  • Here are the answers...

    1. Blue Plate Special = The Daily Special (not left-overs!) 

    2. Graveyard Stew = Milk Toast, ie, buttered toast, sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon, and dropped into a bowl of warm milk. (My dad's favorite, btw. Also congrats to Skeezix who was the only one to know this - did you google it? :-) 

    3. Adam & Eve On a Raft = Two Poached Eggs on Toast 

    4. A Cowboy = Western/Denver Omelette 

    5. Short Stack = Two Pancakes (a stack is usually three) 

    6. A BLT = Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato Sandwich (I cut mine in four triangles) 

    7. Coney Island = Hot Dog (like they served at Coney Island!) 

    8. White Cow = Vanilla Milkshake 

    9. Eighty-six = The kitchen is out of the item ordered. 

    10. Sunny Side Up = The eggs are fried without flipping them, so the yolk looks just like a sun on white background. 

    11. Pigs in a Blanket = Ham Sandwich (although I thought it meant sausage links wrapped in a pancake, but hey, what do I know) 

    12. Put a hat on it. = Add Ice Cream 13. Soup Jockey = Waitress (source: American Diner Museum
