Anyone tried the new Country Kitchen restaurant where the Mill Creek Manor Tea Room was? Would be nice to have some good food on that end of town

(VERY) late breakfast today at CK - "Cordon Bleu Skillet" - Bacon, hash browns, scrambled eggs, diced ham, crispy chicken tenders, and Swiss Cheese hiding under a very tasty hollandaise sauce for around $12. Enough for two people to split - add toast, fruit, or pancakes on the side. Senior discount of 10% is DOUBLED on Tuesday to 20%.
Breakfast is available ALL day until closing. Unlimited coffee (pot left on the table).
We'll go back and try other items on the menu. Nothing exotic, but potentially several notches above Denny's.
The price you pay though is having to listen to Country-Western music.

We were given the lowdown on the history of Mill Creek Manor Tea Room (and its predecessors) over the years. We've been driving by there for over 30 years and never suspected what was available inside! BBL does have some interesting history indeed.

We tried it this week. We had the Cordon Blue skillet also, delicious! The fried Pickles were the best I have ever had! Give it a try!

Upon returning to CK, we found that the "Corporate" menu on the Web shows crepes, but BBL franchise is not yet serving these - soon we are promised. Lunch was a Reuben and their popular seasoned french fries. Reuben not quite up to Maggio's, but CK is a much shorter drive for us - like 3 minutes.
Join the CK e-club for 15% discount, free birthday meal, etc.

No Country/Western music today - I don't know if they're just playing CD's or choosing a Music Channel for the day.

Thanks for the reviews everyone. I never visited the Tea Room but I will definitely give Country Kitchen a try!

As far as BVES wiring goes, up here in Surgarloaf it looks like something out of the 1800's with wires running every which way, My house is fed from a spice off of wires down the middle of the street. I would much prefer if it all was underground.

I'll try to find the legal discussion on this and repost it here.

Naw, it's specific to the threat, could be anywhere from hours to days. In our area it would generally be less than 24 hrs. Up in norcal they had had a multiday event so the outage duration followed.

Oct 18 : 08:53pm
This is not just a few hours folks. The new law prescribes very specific actions that a power company must follow once they've shut down. None of those actions can take place in a few hours- more like a few days.

ButlerPeakFire - What took them so long to getting around to figuring out they needed to upgrade their system to be less prone to starting fires during conditions that we've been seeing, well....forever?

Oct 18 : 08:42pm
BVS follows SCE standards and works with the same contract design firms. Mine being one of them. They are currently starting to upgrade their systems for covered conductor. This should help strengthen their system against outages and phase to phase arcing that can create wildfires.

Yeah, it's all more or less the same thing... thankfully, we don't get the real strong Santa ana winds as in the valleys, passes and canyons.

Oct 18 : 08:23pm
Oh, I forgot about BVES. Thsts the same thing Edison has going. I think its being mandated by the PUC. Two weeks ago Edison had lots of warnings and some turn offs. This week there are warnings but not in this area. Some in San Berdo though.

We're not SCE, we're Bear Valley Electric Service (Big Bear Valley). This is the new standard to try and prevent the ignition of wildfires during times of high fire danger.

It's a proactive approach to protect life & property. [Click Here]

0n the Edison outage information web page, I dont see any of our nearby areas currently being considered for wind related shutdowns. Am I wrong.

Oct 18 : 07:29pm
I am a bit concerned that people are "normalizing" the behavior of the power company's potential shutdown of our power by comparing that to TRUE preparedness for disasters! This is a power company created crisis, NOT a natural disaster.

Remember we went through this same fire drill less than a week ago and power wasn't cut, this will be a weaker Santa Ana event, so I wouldn't lose any sleep over it. Always be prepared just in case!

I'll think you'll be ok for a few hours if you plan ahead... Imagine a winter storm with trees down again that takes the power out for days. At least this you can see coming and prepare for.

Oct 18 : 07:11pm
Boots, do you have a generator?

Oct 18 : 06:49pm
being prepared for those other things is not the same as cutting power if you have a well and livestock to water!!
