This time I was taken to lunch for Oma's birthday with her very good friend Ms. Mildred. This woman is such a delight to talk to and is my contemporary and so we had lots in common.
She and her Mother came here in the late 40's on Route 66 and traveled around the southwest and discovered a real passion for the tri cultures of the area. She is a walking encyclopedia concerning Mimbres pottery of the middle Rio Grande valley and is a gem.
She and Oma introduced me to a lovely place for breakfast and lunch. The name of the restaurant is Weck's and they have, even in this economy grown consistently. They now have 10 locations all over ABQ and Rio Rancho.
We all had a dish that is only served at Weck's called a Bowl o Papas which is hashbrowns with bacon, sausage and ham with all manner of goodies with an egg on top. I am pictured here with what the native refer to as Christmas on the side. Red and green chile.
Good food, good service, great company to visit with.
Ta, Ms Crone
