(This is a EweToob two-fer Christmas weekend from the Kinks.  The first one is just because "Waterloo" somewhat rhymes with "Boogaloo"; the second one is just because this is what Christmas is really all about… the toys and violence.)

First off, I would like to say "Thank you very much!" to Penny Blankenship (artist extraordinaire and authoress of three 'blogs of her own) for designing the spiffy new banner/header-thingy here. I said "I would like to say", but I won't.

I don't normally go out for breakfast on Mondays and was trying to figure where would be a good place for a change. I was thinking of going back to Just For You Cafe, but found out last night that they are closed until December 26th for the Holidays (see, sometimes it actually pays to "Like" some pages on defacedbook, as that was where I saw the notification last night). So I decided to just go back to Boogaloos (see last 'blog-entry from March 3rd, 2012); they used to be in my Breakfastary Rotation, and due to no fault of their own (the food is still very good), but I DFA'd them a while back to make room for restaurants that were much closer (yes, I am that lazy).

I should have probably ordered the Boogaloo Classic ~ 2 eggs any style, homefries, and a biscuit smothered in vegetarian herb-cream gravy, topped with green onions. But I ended up ordering a
"Make it Funky" Scram ~ 2 eggs scrambled with your favourite ingredients (which you get to choose from a long list of items); served with famous homefries (one word, thank you) and choice of: sourdough, wheat, rye, English muffin, biscuit, corn muffin, or blueberry (an actual botanical berry) coffee cake. I also had a large glass of ruby red grapefruit (yes, another berry, even) juice.

My "Funky" choices were red onion, fresh basil, and Parmesan. Now here is where I always say I should re-check my old entries to see what I had recently ordered so as not to re-order the same thing. Well, I did just that last night, and I still ordered almost the same as I had the last time I ate there (fresh basil, Parmesan, and 'Fake Stake' scramble). No matter, I purposefully ordered this combination because it reminded me of la bandiera italiana (red, white, and green) and had Christmasy colours in it. This had a ton of fresh basil chiffonade in it, probably as much green as you would find in a spinach omelette, which seemed like an awful lot to me, but it actually worked and tasted perfect (luckily I love basil).

The homefries are always good here; they add some kind of yellow curry powder to the mess. Now who would choose plain ol' toast (even if it was sourdough or rye) when there are three fresh baked choices?! I chose the biscuit and was very glad as the biscuit was great; it had green onions all throughout it.

Boogaloos only has Tapatío® on each tables as condimentary supplementation. So I used some of my own 
Palo Alto Fire Fighters Pepper Sauce ~ XX Habanero (Thanks agains, Amys and Brian!) on the homefries and some Cherry Republic® KaBOB's Kick'en Hot Sauce (Thanks again, Cindy!) on the scramble.

Merry Christmas to Al[1], and to Al a goodnight!


Glen Bacon Scale Rating: "Make it Funky" Scramble ~ 6.4

1. I am not sure who this "Al" guy is, but everyone else wishes him the same thing around this time of the year. He may have been an uncle of that little Mexican kid, Jesús, or maybe he was one of the unnamed Wise Guys. I know he wasn't the creepy Ångel that was hanging out at the manger, as everyone knows his name was "Harold", as in the old Christmas carol: "Hark, the Ångel Harold Sings".


  1. I would like to say "You're Welcome", but instead I'll say: MEH!

  2. AT least the pic isn't the nightmare fuel one with Brian's face photoshopped over Audrey's. Because there are some things one shouldn't be subjected to prior to reading about food.

    1. Keep it up and it will go up!

      Penny (Cartoonist) also did that masterpiece for me.
