So…today is my birthday and I was given the option to have dinner anywhere I chose. In the last year I have been to restaurants all over Milwaukee with Yelp and #MKEFoodies, and have been opening myself up to all different kinds of food.
I checked out my list of foods that I wanted to try in hopes of coming up with a birthday dinner idea. Did I want to go to Maxie’s Southern Comfort and try the oysters? Did I want to go to Triskele’s and try the mussels? Did I want to go back to Capital Grille for a nice dry aged steak?
Nope…I didn’t want any of that fanciness. I just wanted some good, old fashioned, comfort food. It doesn’t get any more comfortable than a double cheeseburger (no onions or pickles), fries and a cup of the chicken flavored noodle soup from George Webb.
I have been enjoying this same meal since I was a kid. I remember sitting in the window of the Webb’s on a Sunday afternoon waiting for a booth to open up. Going with my father and begging to sit at the counter for lunch. Even now, when I am sick, the only thing that can beat the bug is a Quart of the chicken flavored noodle soup. (Even though the recipe has changed recently)
So, this 35th birthday, I didn’t want any fancy pants dinner. I just wanted what I knew would make my taste buds and my belly happy!
Thank You George Webbs for always being there!!
