Guy Lombardo Orchestra - Auld Lang Syne (New Year 1946)

Happy happy happy happy happy happy Friday! And not just any Friday --- the last Friday of 2017! Celebrate with a toasty, melty grilled cheese sandwich and a bowl of hot soup, delivered right to your doorstep. Did you know that the song “Auld Lang Syne,” traditionally sung as the clock strikes midnight on December 31st, started as a poem written by Scottish poet Robert Burns in 1788? It was set to music and popularized as a New Year’s theme by American orchestra leader Guy Lombardo in the first half of the twentieth century. Here is Lombardo’s orchestra performing the song at the dawn of 1946, when our fathers and grandfathers and great-grandfathers were returning home from World War II to launch what Tom Brokaw dubbed “The Greatest Generation.” Let’s all pledge to be kind to one another in 2018. Happy New Year, everybody!

Christmas New Year 1945 - 46.

And yes --- it’s Breakfast Biscuit Friday! With a giant shout-out (literally) to Ethel Merman and Irving Berlin, the following lines should be sung to the tune of “There’s No Business Like Show Business”:

Everything that breakfast is, AND HOW! ♪
♫ You’ll get such a happy FEELing
You’ll soon be SQUEALing ♪
♫ “These biscuits --- WOW!” ♫ ♫

For those of you born after the sixties, here is Ethel Merman performing the song in the 1954 musical film, “Annie Get Your Gun.” Look for a young Marilyn Monroe in the ensemble. Have a great weekend, everybody!

With apologies to Edgar Allen Poe:

Now upon this Thursday dreary,
As you toil, weak and weary,
Through workday chores that try one’s soul…
What could make the eyes less bleary?
What could make the day more cheery?
Tomato Basil --- try a bowl!

Okay, maybe we should be apologizing to Burma Shave….

But really ---- what is more comforting on a cold winter’s day than belly-warming tomato soup and an ooey, gooey, grilled cheese sandwich? Today’s special is our classic grilled cheese sandwich and a cup of Tomato Basil Soup for $7.75 --- AND you get a pickle and chips! AND you don’t even have to go out in the cold to get it --- The Hungry Hollow delivers! Look for us on Mealeo and Grubhub.

Today's soups are Tomato Basil, Artichoke Mushroom, and Butternut Squash with Hazelnut Crumble. Have a delightful Day Before Friday, everybody!

As promised, a nod to Dr. Seuss:

How DO you like your empaNADA?
With a LITtle bit of spice, or with a whole LOTTA?
When you KRUNCH through the KRUST to the SAvory soFREEto
Do your taste buds reJOICE, singing out “This is NEATO!”?

Yes, you guessed right --- it is Empanada Special Wednesday! Two of our deep-fried beef empanadas made with homemade soffrito (a tomato-based sauce with onion, peppers, garlic and spices), plus your choice of fries or a green side salad, for $6.99. Today’s soups are Tomato Basil, Chicken Noodle, Artichoke Mushroom and Butternut Squash with Hazelnut Crumble.

Now, which hapless poet should we pirate tomorrow…

A mid-December haiku for you all:

On this wintry day
Warming my chill inner soul
Artichoke Mushroom.

What --- too early in the morning to appreciate poetry? Nonetheless, as you’ve probably guessed, the Soup of the Day is Artichoke Mushroom. What better way to keep warm than to enjoy a bowl of this velvety soup loaded with generous bites of artichoke hearts and seasoned mushrooms? Today we also have Chicken Noodle, Tomato Basil, and Butternut Squash Soup with Hazelnut Crumble.

Maybe tomorrow we’ll try a Seussian slant…
