My all time favorite lunch
I’m driving down to Los Angeles. Again. We have opened a new ice cream and cookie store in Beverly Hills, and I get to go down and make it work.
The only shining light on the long boring drive is stopping for lunch at Pea Soup Andersen’s. I know what I’m going to get before I walk in the restaurant, the Travelers Special. All the pea soup you can eat, fresh baked rolls and a wide choice of drinks including not only soft drinks and milk but even buttermilk which you rarely see these days.
You really must order the extra toppings. For a dollar and a half you get small containers of ham, bacon, green onions, cheese and croutons. Careful budgeting will spread these delights over two bowls of soup, which is all I can eat these days. In my youth I could manage at least three and occasionally four bowls, but time is catching up with me.
Lunch over, it’s time for me to hit the road for another four long boring hours until I get to Los Angeles and can go to work.
I expect this to be yet another adventure. Stay tuned, and see how the cookie crumbles.
