As in the past, we provided lodging for the blogger party attendees who traveled too far for it to be a one day event and in this case three couples stayed with us and one stayed with Bev’s sister, Pat.
For this trip the Hofer’s had asked, via email, if they could provide breakfast for the overnight guests. Once before they had stayed two nights and laid out a delicious gourmet dinner so I nearly injured my two typing fingers trying to reply so quickly with a resounding yes to the breakfast offer.
The menu was:
Mimosa’s of orange juice and Prosesca
Triple Cinnamon Scones (provided by Penny the scone queen)
Oven fried bacon, imported from Nueskes in Wittenberg, WI
Corn cakes (a Hofer family tradition)
Blueberry maple syrup and homemade butter (yep, they made it on site)
Scrambled eggs with mushrooms
Mixed fruit of strawberries and blue berries
Lots of coffee
This is the assembly line plating operation and my plate.
Wow what a way to wrap up our weekend events - Penny’s scones were a delicious beginning and as always, the Hofer boys put on an outstanding meal. I wish they would all come and do it every month or two. Not only was the meal great but the cleanup crew had the kitchen in very good shape as well. Thanks all for a wonderful morning.
Everyone got on the road around noon and I’m glad we didn’t have to drive anywhere – Bev took a nap and I sat comatose in my chair for a while – awake but still comatose.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.
