Inspired by Nelson’s fairly recent coat of blue, downtown Gloucester caught between the blues and the deep blue sea

Leftovers: Saint Patrick’s at Lee’s

Checking through the hard drive leftovers and forgot to post our Saint Patrick’s Breakfast at Lee’s.

This Leprechaun may as well be saying, “You’re not from around these parts now are you?” Yes it is true it is the first time we had breakfast at Lee’s. I know, hard to fathom. Can you see the Steve Connelly sign in the background? I have been there.

A look at the menu:

Ordered the Nathalie with Hollandaise and hash. Wicked pissah.

Then it was back home to plant the peas which is something that has to be done on Saint Patrick’s Day. They already need thinning.
