The Daily EO: October 28th, 2012

The retirement residence that my grandpa lives at serves 2 meals a day – lunch and dinner.  A early morning continental breakfast is served in the breakfast room but many of the residents break the fast in their suites.   Like airplanes and hospitals, the thought of food in a retirement residence pulls up thoughts of industrial, lacking food.  But at the Mulberry, the food is pretty good.

Each day there is a menu, but if you don’t care for the feature, you can opt to have one of the three or so back up meals.  These back up meals change each month as well, so there is ample variety.  And if you want a fried egg or the like, the kitchen will try to get it for you.

Residences can have guests join for meals as well – for an extra fee – so I have eaten a number of meals at Mulberry.

On Sundays, the hot lunch often is breakfast fare recalling leisurely Sunday brunches from years before.

I awoke on Sunday morning with a hankering for scrambled eggs, bacon and toast – a real breakfast.  And when I considered my options, I realized Mulberry was the best bet.  There is always breakfast available and the company is pretty good.
