Welcome Home Diner
Welcome Home Diner | Peggy Lampman
10 posts | 5 read | 23 to read
Betting on the city of Detroit's eventual comeback, cousins Addie and Samantha decide to risk it all on an affordable new house and a culinary career that starts with renovating a vintage diner in a depressed area of town. There's just one little snag in their vision.Angus, a weary, beloved local, is strongly opposed to his neighborhood's gentrification--and his concerns reflect the suspicion of the community. Shocked by their reception, Addie and Samantha begin to have second thoughts.As the long hours, problematic love interests, and underhanded pressures mount, the two women find themselves increasingly at odds, and soon their problems threaten everything they've worked for. If they are going to realize their dreams, Addie and Samantha must focus on rebuilding their relationship. But will the neighborhood open their hearts to welcome them home?

Breakfast at the diner , along with one of Lewis Grizzard‘s books. Chili Dawgs Always Bark At Night. So glad his books are available in Kindle now !

gradcat Yummm! Hash browns! 😋 (edited) 9mo
Kaye Yep. Tasty. Hash browns, bacon and French toast ( didn‘t fit in picture. @gradcat 9mo
sk888888 Read his stuff years ago. Funny, funny guy! 9mo
Kaye @sk888888 Love Lewis Grizzard. I think I‘ve read all his books but it was many years ago. Lately I‘ve been scooping up some of my old favorites that are now on kindle to reread. I can‘t remember which of his where he was talking about food, and I was laughing my butt off. He was SO freaking funny. 9mo

🍽📚I love good foodie fiction & enjoyed this story of Sam & Addie, two cousins renovating & running a diner in a Detroit neighborhood to help (& benefit from) the urban renewal happening in the city. About food, family, friendship, community & reinvention. Paired here with Crispy Cornmeal Fried Fish & Quinoa Tabbouleh with Feta & Herbs inspired by the book. Link to review, recipes & *GIVEAWAY*(U.S. & Canada addresses) on the blog, link 👇🏻

MinDea Yummy! 2y

LeahBergen Oh, that catfish looks fab! 2y
ephemeralwaltz Ughhh Tabbouleh is my favorite! I never tried it with quinoa 😱❤ 2y
britt_brooke Pretty photo - looks delicious! 2y
TheKidUpstairs My mouth is watering! 2y
DebinHawaii @MinDea @Cinfhen @britt_brooke @TheKidUpstairs Thank you! 😊❤️ @LeahBergen Mahalo! It's actually a local fish called monchong subbing in but it does look like catfish doesn't it?! 😆🐟 @ephemeralwaltz It works pretty well, not quite the same texture but close. It's a good alternative for gluten free & I like the protein it adds. 👍😀 2y

I am devoted to my favorite avocado toast with spicy garlic aioli that is in so many of my other Litsy posts 😆but I wanted to try the last of my Rick Bayless pickled red onions as an avo toast topping. Since they are pickled with lime juice, the tangy flavor works well with the creamy avocado & a bit of chopped cilantro & celery salt. 😋A great Sunday breakfast with a few chapters of this book I'm reviewing on the blog later in the week. 🥑🍞💚

Leftcoastzen Yummy! 2y
UwannaPublishme This book looks almost as good as your breakfast. 😁👍🏻 2y
Amandajoy I may need to start keeping pickled onions in the fridge for my avocado toast. That sounds delicious! 2y
DebinHawaii @Leftcoastzen It was! 😋 @UwannaPublishme It's good so far-good foodie fiction! 🍽📚 @Amandajoy It worked really well--I may have to make more pickled onions! 🤗 2y

I enjoyed the banter between the characters and the uplifting feeling THE WELCOME HOME DINER gave off. The cover ITSELF is very welcoming.

If you are a fan of food and love, THE WELCOME HOME DINER fits the bill.

I'm reading this one for review at the end of the month & haven't started it yet but I thought it looked pretty with the soup bowl.😆🍲📚💙 Link to post with soup recipe is below.

mrsmarch @DebinHawaii @VanChocStrawberry Trader Joe's frozen key lime pie. I've eaten an entire one by myself in 24 hrs but who's counting 😆 2y
