Since we were talking hot sauce and hot peppers only yesterday, it seems fitting that I tell you about my lunch today.
Sweet Husband and I had a few errands to do today, and we decided that we could do them all over here in our neighborhood village without having to venture any farther afoot.
Good thing, too -- it was about 100 degrees on our car thermometer the whole time we were out. I pulled out another straw hat. I have all these dumb hats, so I might as well protect the alabaster skin right?
We got up late-ish, and decided to only have coffee so that we could hit a place that recently opened at the far end of our village. It is called Big Bad Breakfast. Now I am not one who will normally go out for breakfast because I like to be (a) lazy and drink coffee and read on my computer for a couple of hours, and (b) I like to be able to get ready for my day in a leisurely fashion. Who the heck likes to rush about getting presentable at 7:30 in the morning to run to eat breakfast and not have access to your toothbrush, etc.? Not me! That's why we call it "RETIRED".
So we arrived at BBB about 11:30 and the joint was hoppin'. Their hours are 7:30 till 2:30 according to Sweet Husband who read it on the menu. They do offer various cocktails, etc., but we passed, opting for iced coffee which was fabulous! It really hit the spot on this hot day. I will probably be awake till in the morning, but it was probably worth it.

Sweet Husband ordered the "Elvis", a fried sandwich with peanut butter, mayo and banana piled high with bacon. Yes ma'am, you read that right. Thank God he takes Lipitor.
I ordered the Big Bad BLT. I took a bite, and yes, it was delicious, and yes, it was hot as fire, but I don't mean with fire. Turns out the mayo and the bacon both are infused with Tabasco!!!
Good thing I like really hot stuff. The potato salad was very unusual, but OK. It had a flavored vinegar type of dressing.
Their menu is quite varied with everything you can imagine for breakfast and lunch. People were lined up waiting by the time we left, so I would say that we arrived at a good time.
This is the meat case full of bacon and sausage and various other goodies with the kitchen toward the back. I think this is where you pick up To Go orders, too. Sorry for the blurry iPhone photo. This really is a cool little diner type of place, and there is a large patio with umbrella tables where you can sit when it is not so blooming hot. We will definitely be going back.
Big Bad Breakfast!
