Diner Talk

I grew up on a steady diet of milkshakes and french fries. Okay, most meals were eaten at home and cooked by my mother, but my family was fond of "greasy spoon" diners on our many road trips or moves across country. French fries were a reward for enduring painful doctor appointments without complaints or a welcome end to busy weekends at sports conferences (my sisters played soccer and softball, I watched). Today most meals are still eaten at home, although now I cook for myself with a cookbook my mother made and diner stops are a welcome indulgence on dreary days when I'm feeling under the weather. There's still nothing else quite like a well-mixed milkshake and a basket of fresh fries to make everything seem worthwhile.

  3. These photos are gorgeous, we don't really have anything comparable in the UK, there are still some greasy spoon type places but they don't have the charm that I associate with American diners. So pretty! xo

  6. Yum! I had the most delicious milkshake and fries just the other day. Not exactly the traditional diner version since they were from a Japanese burger place. Nori fries and a green tea milkshake were exactly perfect though.

  12. There is something to be said about the charm of a diner. There is also something special about those old diners where you pull up and a waitress comes out to your car. So charming, so yummy!
