What a wonderful idea, Choowy! I just went to the Saturday market when I was in Eugene, OR, and I'm still telling people about it. I was huge, and fabulous. In know that the cyber-staff can put on something that will blow that one out of the water.

I'm going to wander around and sample the street food, while I listen to the music. Let's see, here's an Asian steamed dumpling cart. I'll start with some of those. Over there is one selling different kind of pasties - I'll have the lamb and spring onion, then a beef and mushroom. A beer would go nice with this - oh, there's a beer tasting table. I'll have a flight and try them all. Can't wait to hit the dessert carts. I'm sure I saw a gelato cart, down there next to the hand pies. This is great fun! Tomorrow, I'll hit all of the crafts booths.

This buffet is just what the doctor ordered. I'll take a little of this a lot of that. Those hotdogs are sure good. Oh yes and french fries, and onion rings. All the street food is yummy, and that dance music is sure sounding good. Oh yes I'll take a large icy cold coca cola and watch the jugglers in the pool.

Wow, Choowy, sounds like quite a weekend at the cybercafe! I'll just finish up my pizza and take a nap out of the way of all the preparations. Maybe the corner by the fireplace will be quiet.

Funny you should mention, EABL, the cyberstaff of the cafe, farm and gift shop have all collaborated to produce a a street fair and farmer's market this weekend. There will be a fresh food market with booths and tents with art, gift, and toys for the kiddies. And at night there will be a night market where you can try some awesome street foods.

Of course there will be a stage where francois, Viktor and Igor will play jazz, reggae, salsa....whatever music you request.....because after all, this is the cybercafe...so they can do it all! The terrace will be open for dancing under the stars.

So stop by and order up yor favorite street foods!

I'll start with a Kimchi Quesadilla, then a Cubano, then a pork katsu sandwich, a meatball sub.....

Sorry, my emoticons aren't posting from my ipad.....so just imagine fruits, veggies, tons of food goodies and dancing......

Hi Linda and Peachygirl! It's rather quiet here lately at café. We might need to plan something special for the weekend to liven things up. Any ideas?

I'm in the mood for an authentic Philly cheesesteak with grilled onions and peppers and provolone. The kind that you can only find in Philly, and in cyber-café, of course. I'll have fries with that. And for dessert, I'll have an assortment of Tasty-kakes. Peanut butter kandy kakes and butterscotch krimpets were always my favorites, but they have some new ones now that I'll have to try as well.

Think I'll just take my order out to the patio and visit with Linda and the menagerie.

I'd like a Portuguese roll with roast beef and coleslaw, please, with a great big ol' Dr. Pepper. Then I think I'll take a nap in my recliner with Moxie, Useless, and the kitten.

Hi everyone! I know I'm late, but if I were in Spain, this would be a normal dinnertime (~10:00 pm). So... I'll have the paella, please, with a nice Rioja. For dessert, I'll have the flan, and a glass of sherry.

Good evening cybercafe! I'm looking for some comfort food. Tonight that's mac and cheese with meatloaf and green beans, please. I'll have some of those biscuits, as well, with honey butter and apricot preserves. Oh, and a nice pot of coffee with cream and sugar, sugar. Thanks!

Hi everyone, Francois I know you have that secret recipe. I could go for some kfc chicken,mashed potatoes and gravy with corn on the cob,and some their great biscuits. I knew you had it. I'll take it by the pool with a large icy cold coca cola. For dessert I'll take a large brownie with chocolate ice cream, and chocolate sauce

Hi all! I'll have some of those things that Choowy made in the RW! Sounds better than what we eat here all the time. Did someone say mint chip ice cream? (gee, wonder who that might have been :-). I'll have some of that over a chocolate brownie with some whipped cream for dessert.

(Garlic fried chicken? Crab potato salad? I've never had those, but they sound wonderful!)

It's okay, Charityak - you may actually find that the more you order here in the cybercafé, the less you actually start craving the stuff. Funny how that works - sort of virtual wish fulfillment.

I'll start with the cheese and fruit platter, please. We'll just add some of that garlic fried chicken to that. I think I'll wander over to sit with Choowy. I'm definitely having some chocolate chip mint ice cream, too. I'd like mine on top of a turtle brownie with hot fudge sauce and maraschino cherries. Yum!

EABL always manages to come up with terrific menus!

I'm salivating right now just thinking about all the goodies I've missed during the holiday cybercafe weekend! Well, I'll just have some of everything now and then, I'll think about what to order....

In the real world I made a mountain of garlic fried chicken and a tub of crab potato macaroni salad. I think I went a little overboard on my quantities.......but it was yummy!

Nommers....all that cyberfood sure was tasty.....i think I'll have to stroll over to Igor's ice cream station and have a looksee.............

EABL you are doing such a great job serving up all this wonderful food!

It's breakfast time so I'll have a double order of caramel rolls, a biscuit topped with a scrambled egg and then sausage and gravy on top of that with a big glass of orange juice.
Thank you!

That's right, Charityak - no calories in anything you enjoy here in the cyber-café, so order up!
Would you like some fresh, buttered corn on the cob with that? How about some homemade biscuits to soak up all that wonderful gravy? What would you like to drink with that? How about some dessert?

I'm hungry too, so I think I'll have some bbq baby-back ribs with beans, corn, coleslaw and biscuits. For dessert, I'll have a large slice of dark chocolate-iced devil's food cake.

Here's your breakfast, Peachy - Francois threw in a complimentary cinnamon bun to your order as well.

Those eggs look so good, I think I'll have some too. Instead of ham, though, please make mine with crab and asparagus, Francois. I'll have a pot of tea with milk and sugar, please. Looks like it's shaping up to be another beautiful day at the cyber-café!

Hi all! Glad the grill is still going. I'd like some of those lamb kabobs with couscous, roasted tomatoes, flatbread and tzatziki sauce. While I'm waiting I'll have the humus platter with pita chips, veggies, and kalamata olives. Some pinot noir with that, please. For dessert, I'd like some Moroccan almond orange cake. Ice cream with that? Sure, why not?

Hello everyone. Hope you're having a great day. I could go for a Sunday dinner of roast pork, mashed potatoes, and corn on the cob, plus plenty of rolls and butter, and gravy. For dessert how about an apple pie, and ice cream with an icy cold coca cola, and my usual cafe mocha

Here are your drink orders, Peachy_girl and Tryinghard. Plus a complimentary cyber-café cinnamon bun on the side. They're delicious!

For brunch, I'll have breakfast pizza with smoked salmon, pesto, artichoke hearts, slivered red onion, kalamata olives, and feta on whole wheat crust (I'm making this for dinner in the RW), and a pot of tea with milk and sugar, please. I'll have the spiced grilled peaches with vanilla ice cream for dessert. Then off for a comfortable afternoon lounging on the patio with a magazine. This is the life!

Viktor makes the best hamburgers on that grill! Dinner was great--I just put some of those burgers on biscuits and had potato salad and coleslaw. Now I'm definitely ready for s'mores. Eabl, I don't think we ever have to worry about running out of s'mores ingredients. The cybercafe kitchen seems to have an endless supply!

Hi everyone! I just came in from gardening in the RW, and I am famished. Today the weather is as lovely in the RW as it always is at the cyber-café, so I'm just going to eat and run. I'd like an order of the fried chicken (haven't had that in so long I can't remember when), some potato salad and some corn, please. Biscuits with honey would be nice, too, and maybe an iced chai latte with that. Hey, Linda, are there any more s'mores ingredients left over from last night? Since Viktor has the grill going again today, I think I'll have a few for dessert. Love Choowy's idea of adding raspberry jam to those.

Okay, 'bye all! Off to enjoy some more of that great weather!

Eabl, that pie was delicious. Had that for lunch. Love my grilled chicken kabobs, potato salad, grilled corn, coleslaw, and biscuits.

The fireworks have started and boy, are they spectacular! It'll be time to make s'mores in an hour or so. It's so nice to have the recliner to lie back in to watch the show.

Hi all! This party's going full swing! Igor just set up an ice cream table, and is dishing up sundaes for those who want them. Or you can just add a scoop to your pie. I had a piece of the almond peach ginger earlier with a scoop of cinnamon, so I think I'm ready for a full-fledged sundae now. I'll have a peanut butter cup sundae, please. Igor makes that with a base of peanut butter chocolate chip cookies, tops it with vanilla ice cream, then adds hot fudge sauce, chopped peanuts, and a sprinkling of mini peanut butter cups. Then he piles on the whipped cream, of course. I'm going to get my order in there's still time to claim a good recliner for the fireworks. I think I'll sit over there by Choowy. She's by the firepit, and I just know that she'll start making s'mores once the fireworks display is over and the band starts up.

Oh, look! I see Linda and Zzyyggy are already over there, I'll just run over and join them all. Make room for me, girls!

Wow! People are already shooting off fireworks!

Happy Fourth everybody!

I'll put out the checkered red and white tablecloths on the Terrace and ready to burst pikanik baskets on each table. So order up what ever your heart desires from the cybergrill and the basket will have all the sides you want!

So tell us what your order will be!

In the RW I'm making a mountain of garlic fried chicken, mac salad and cornflake cookies.

I love the red, white and blue theme in Linda's menu!

Wow! The brunch buffet is hopping. Nice to see all of the new patrons joining us. Welcome to the café! We do hope you'll be back. Feel free to order as much and often as you want. All sales are in cyber dollars and absolutely nothing has any calories.

Let's see, I'll have a piece of the ham and cheese strata with some fried potatoes, and some bacon. Those scones do look nice, so I'll take one of those, and of course, a cinnamon bun. Tea with milk and sugar, please, Viktor.

I'm looking forward to the bbq and fireworks tonight. The guys have pulled out the stops - anything you want - if it can be grilled, they've got it! Plus, all of the sides imaginable. Choowy's making her fabulous s'mores, with the raspberry jam center. It's such a nice addition spread between the soft, gooey marshmallow and the melted chocolate. Francois has been baking up a storm as well. He's apparently made quite the selection of pies. His almond ginger peach pie is one of my absolute favorites. Can't wait!

Oh, I love fireworks! And they are so beautifully reflected in the pool - can't wait to see them again this year.

Tonight I'm going with the bbq ribs, beans, corn-on-the-cob, and coleslaw. I think I'll have a beer with that for a change. For dessert, I'm having what LInda's having, but hold the cherries, please. Just add more whipped cream to mine.

Zzyyggy, I think you're on to something there. Renata's so wired from all of that caffeine that she can't stop ordering. Sort of like a caffeine driven stutter. No wonder she flies by so fast!

And all of Renata's drinks are caffeinated, or most of them, and a couple of them are espressos so she must be zinging along. Speaking of espressos I could go for a large iced cafe mocha with extra mocha. I'll take it by the pool, and sip on it until dinner. For dinner I could really go for some rotisserie chicken and potato salad, and corn on the cob with lots of butter and an icy cold coca cola. I think Igor has set up some fireworks for tomorrow night. emoticon emoticon

Did you ever wonder whether or not Renata has a drinking problem? No, I don't mean alcohol, I just mean liquids. Why does she always order so many drinks? Just seems strange...

At any rate, just watching her order has made me thirsty. I'll have one of those cyber-café cocktails that Viktor cooked up. So refreshing! And maybe a scoop or two of gelato - amaretto, with a drizzle of chocolate, please.
