Country Roads, Take Me Home

WOKE UP EARLY IN THE MORNING and had our breakfast at Star Dust Casino restaurant, just five minutes drive away from our hotel, Silver Legacy.  The breakfast meal is only around $4.99 per person and it comes in a complete set... each of us took one set though I am surprised at myself that I could finish one whole meal by myself!!  American Breakfast... never before I ate such a Big Meal... Since there were six of us, they gave us a private room...

After our heavy breakfast, we went for a day trip to Virginia City, an old cowboy town famous for its gold mine those days.... and on the way, the song Country Roads came to my mind....Almost heaven, West Virginia, Blue Ridge Mountains.. Shenandoah River.....
Our all time American Breakfast.... 
My order is the first top left... Nice?
And our journey started... from highway to the mountains...
Passing residential houses on the way....
And going UP and UP....
Very high UP in fact....
Taken from the moving car...
And we stopped half way to breathe in the scenery....
We followed the cyclist down the steps.... 
Going to the edge of the mountain....
To capture this scene from the top...
The man who built this.... 
Dr. D.M. Geiger.... 
I have to be very careful though.... cannot afford to slip....
Yes, I need some assistance to go up the steps....to the very top!
Blue Ridge Mountains..
The wind was really strong...
\
That was the highest I could go.... 
The wind was heard howling... 
And I quickly went down the steps before I get blown away...
If Not for the heavy American Breakfast, I Might be blown...
LOL....

The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t
