you can take the kids out of Johnstown...

...but you can't take the Johnstown out of the kids. 

Oh yes we did.  Brandon whipped up a homemade version of the Coney Island Sundowner for dinner last night....and it was delicious.  For whatever reason, when B asked what I wanted for dinner I answered, "Too bad we don't have any buns- we could make sundowners...." Like it was the most normal thing I've ever suggested.  It took Brandon about 30 seconds to put on his shoes and get in the truck to drive to Wegmans for buns and chili sauce.  B worked his magic in the kitchen - unfortunately there was no arm balancing of food and or plates...he said he'll work on it for next time- and they were surprisingly quick and easy to make.  At the first bite, both of our eyes got big and we were surpressing huge smiles...We kept saying, 'why haven't we made these before?'

For those of you that are unfamiliar with the Sundowner, it is a cheeseburger topped with onions, mustard, chili, and a fried egg...and is a Johnstown legend.  Nothing hits the spot at 3am like one of these delightful sandwiches.  Brandon actually said last night, "I think this is probably the earliest in the evening that I've ever had a sundowner"  hahha.  Sometimes you just need a little piece of home.
