Spinach Omelets

I love a good breakfast. I especially love spinach omelets and have not found very many places that serve them and can get all the components of the breakfast right; a nice fluffy omelet with fresh spinach, crunchy hash browns that are not mushy in the middle, good coffee and toast. Another must is that you can go to the place after rolling out of bed and putting on your sweats and throwing your hair into a pony tail and feel like you belong. So that rules out several breakfast places.
I happened upon this little hole in the wall a couple years ago. It’s a few blocks north of Colorado on Holly Street, open until 3 in the afternoon and only takes cash. It has been there a while and the décor shows it. Ernie owns the place and will probably seat you, take your order and wait on you too. The menu consists of an odd variety of selections, breakfast foods, lunch sandwiches and burgers and some Chinese offerings. You could probably walk into the place with your jammies and no one would bat and eye (perfect for the morning after).
My favorite on the menu are the omelets. They are fluffy and filled with your selection of yummies. I love the spinach omelet, inside is melty cheese and pieces of crispy bacon. The spinach is fresh and is cooked into the egg and is perfect. The hash browns are crispy on the outside and perfect on the inside, no mushy stuff here.

They also make a killer corned beef hash, if that is your thing. Sometimes it’s hard to find straight hash on the menu. There are all those hash variations that include things like, pesto or sun dried tomatoes, or some other trendy ingredient that completely ruins corned beef hash. Pancakes are stellar too. I stay away from the benedict since I am a hollandaise snob and the stuff here doesn’t cut it for me.

Go try 54 Holly. It will take you back in time. Say hi to Ernie for me.

I've been to this place and can vouch for your review. BTW, their pancakes are terrific too!

Since you did bring it up -- where is the *perfect* hollandaise sauce to be found in L.A.? (Other than in your kitchen, of course ;) ).

Brand New Gateway PC SX2800-03 Windows Vista Home 64bit with SP1 Intel Core2 Quad Q8200 4gigs of DDR3 for RAM Intel GMA X4500 Intergrated video (vga and hdmi outputs) 640 gig My friend just got this pc for Christmas. They were installing softwares. They must have downloaded a crappy software to get this error. The last software they installed and all the problems started after the install was iTunes. Probaly didn't get it directly from Apple and got it from another fake website or something. OR maybe he may have visited an adult site and gotten the trojan/virus. Heck I don't know cause the dang thing wont boot up. Here's what I've tried so far.... 1. changed bios settings to boot only from hd. 2. tried booting into safe mode, it'll restart cause it'll get stuck right at cscdisk.dll 3. tried booting to last known good config 4. tried the "Launch Startup Repair"... that tried to repair but went straight to BSOD after 10min. I don't even get a chance to get to the windows logo before it BSOD. Here is the error message: A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen. etc.... ***STOP: 0x00000ED (0XFFFFFA8004245CC0, 0XFFFFFFFFC0000185, 0X0000000000000000, 0X0000000000000000) [url=]santoramaa[/url]

רציתי לחלק איתכם במקרה אשר עברתי אחרי הפיגוע בדולפינריום. במשך שנה לאחר המאורע, הרגשתי מדוכאת, חסרת שמחת חיים, עייפה ומדוכדכת. בכל דרך רפואית רגילה לא הצלחתי לעזו לעצמי וכתוצאה מכך פניתי ל- [b][url=]עיסוי[/url][/b] רפואי אלטרנטיבי. המליצו לי על מעסה מקצועי מ - עיסוי עד הבית, אשר כולל מסאז איורוודה משחרר במיוחד אשר גרם להתעוררות חושים תוך טיפול אחד בלבד. קשה לי להמחיש את השינוי אותו עברתי, אפילו אחרי טיפול מסאג איורוודה ראשוני, השתפר לי המצב הרוח, פיזרתי את השיער ויצאתי מה- [b][url=]מסאג[/url][/b]' עם כוחות חדשים, שמחה ומוכנה להמשיך הלאה.

[b][url=]עיסוי שוודי[/url][/b] הוא עיסוי רפואי משולב עם ריח של קטורת, מוזיקה נעימה ומוזיקה נעימה. בהתחלת העיסוי יש מגע עדין על המגבת לאחר חשיפה של הגוף מכף רגל ועד ראש. מריחת שמן חם מכף רגל ועד הראש, אח"כ תנועה עדינה ומלטפת מכף רגל ועד ראש ובחזרה. אחרי כמה תנועות עדינות מתחיל הטיפול בצידו השני של הגוף, אחרי אותם תנועות על הצד השני ישנו תהליך של לחיצות רפואיות מכיוון שהגוף התרגל למגע נעים ומרגיע וזה גרם לשרירים להרפות מעט... כל זה בטיפול ספא מפנק של עיסוי עד בית הלקוח.

אני לא האמנתי שדברים כאלו יכולים לקרות עד אשר חוויתי מסאז איורוודה ברמה כזאת, המעסה המקצועי אליי הביתה עם מגע שלא הכרתי שלא תיארתי שיכול להיות. אני ממליצה בחום לכל אחד ואחת אשר חשבו על עיסוי, מסאג' או סתם פינוק מלטף באירוע אישי על

Phentermine is the most commonly prescribed prescription appetite suppressant, accounting for 50% of the prescriptions. Part of this reason is because it's significantly cheaper than the other major FDA-approved diet drugs, Meridia and Xenical.

The combination of Phentermine and Prozac is considered an "off-label" use, meaning that the FDA, who often voice concerns regarding the mixing/combining of medications, does not approve it. However, once the agency has approved a drug, doctors may prescribe it at will.

Most people take the drug for 3-6 weeks; the length of treatment depends on how you respond to phentermine. Phentermine can be habit-forming. Do not take a larger dose, take it more often, or for a longer period than your doctor tells you to.

To prevent side effects, phentermine should be taken with meals. If you are taking an extended-release (long-acting) product, do not chew or crush the tablet. There are some tablets that can be crushed and mixed with food.
