Dandelion Diner

Hello! Come on in and grab a table. I'll be right there with a glass of water and a menu. chef

I'm a bit distracted due to the presence of auditors sitting at my best table and eating all the free chips and salsa they can talk Houndstooth out of. It's all the fault of the third ex-wife, who is convinced I'm getting rich off of burgers and fries. Sheesh!

I'm also short-handed at the moment. My cook quit and ran off with a Mother Goose character in another thread. But, not to worry, I'm a mighty good cook myself. You don't have to worry about leaving hungry. biggrin

You won't find anything fancy here, just plain old good grub burger, good whiskey stiffdrink, and a place to jaw. The menu isn't large, but everything is so good you don't need a lot of choices. I've opened up here on my personal page because at the moment I have a smallish group of customers and we don't need anything fancy. If the need ever arises, we can move into bigger digs.

My waiter is actually a bot named Houndstooth. dog vampire He's a might peculiar acting at times, but the company I got him from told me that he probably isn't dangerous. erm

Each weekend I'll post a recipe of the week in my journal. That'll give you folks something good to cook for Sunday dinner.

My name is Wolfgang, but since another cook has made a name for himself using MY moniker, I usually go by my nickname, Dan. Folks often ask me how I got Dan out of Wolfgang. Well, it's actually Dandelion. You see, I went into business years ago growing and selling dandelion greens to fancy French restaurants. It wasn't a particularly good business, but I've been Dan ever since.

I've gotten a reputation for being a scoundrel. That is totally undeserved. I'm simply plain-spoken and call them like I see them.
