Monday facts..........................................

 ello Monday, hello facts.................

Diners are part of a rich tradition in America. Over the years the staff of these local restaurants have even invented their own language for dishes served.

Adam and Eve on a raft” means two poached eggs on toast

Zeppelins, in a fog” is sausages and mashed potatoes

Cowboy with spurs is a western omelette with chips

Stretch” means a Coke
