A warm snowman

brings a smile

Do you remember when we had a late start a couple Fridays ago?

This was one of those mornings when the temperatures were dipping to 35 below with windchill.

So, didn’t have to get the kids to school at Fillmore Central until 10:00 a.m.

Since we only really have a chance to sit down and have breakfast together on the weekends, when life is less hectic, this was the perfect opportunity to start the day out right.

Olivia, Landon and myself strolled on down to B & B Olympic Bowl, where dice were rolling, the coffee was hot, and there was a welcoming crowd of men sitting around a table giving each other a hard time.

We sat in the corner booth, which was a good observation deck.

In the newly remodeled dining room that Shelly and Paul Hanson (owners) coordinated in late 2014, there’s a feeling of comfort and class.

The Hanson’s really did it right, and I think that’s what makes them great business owners.

They invested in new lanes about four years ago, and now they’ve invested in their dining room.

That continual investment has earned them business and accolades -- well deserved.

And, during our visit to B & B Olympic Bowl, Olivia and Landon had their choice of a wide variety of great breakfast items to choose from.

Olivia selected one pancake, one egg and three sausages. Landon chose to go with a two-egg cheese omelet.

And, I chose the motherload of breakfast choices -- the three meat omelet.

As we waited for our breakfast to arrive, we scanned the dining room, checking out the numerous flatscreen TVs and the sharp looking fireplace.

Breakfast didn’t take long to arrive, and when it was placed before us by Tom Klomps, it was awesome!

Of course, breakfast is almost always awesome, but this was exceptional!

Never before, at any restaurant that I can recall, have we ever witnessed the presentation of a pancake created in the form of a snowman.

And, all of us were smiling and talking about it at our table.

Olivia and Landon got a kick out of it, and they thanked Tom for making this pancake so special for them.

As a matter of fact, I sent a photo of this snowman pancake to my wife in a text message, and she was jealous.
