"Allentown Wrap" is a favorite with the breakfast bunch.
Sundays are “go-out-to-breakfast” days with our good friends Fred and Gail. Usually we mix it up among nearby diners and restaurants for a variety of menu options and prices. One of our favorite places on the list is the Trivet Diner on Tilghman Street, where we often see returning customers. What brings us back: The Allentown Wrap. At $5.25, it is my husband’s favorite breakfast and possibly Gail’s as well. Filled with generous helpings of scrambled egg, bacon and cheese, this pan-browned tortilla is served cut in half with a side of salsa. “They don’t skimp on the cheese,” Gail said of the white American oozing out. "Or the bacon,” Bruce added. “You get a taste of bacon and cheese in every bite.” Other wraps include the Rt. 309 wrap …

Two more homes and a vehicle are splattered, police say.
Easter has come a little early to some portions of Lower Macungie Township, but not all are celebrating the joys of the season. As if chickens won't have enough to do with in producing all those eggs for area children, some may be squawking about the overtime that will be needed to lay extra ones to replace those recently scrambled when thrown at homes and vehicles. On March 17, two nearby residences were hit about 9:45 p.m., according to state police at Fogelsville. Marc Bartolomet and Kathy McKeever reported homes at 6645 Sauterne Drive and 2273 Chablis Drive pelted with eggs. Police also reported that an egg was splattered against the passenger-side door of a vehicle owned by Danial Richard Miller of 2671 Thistle Road between 7:45 and 9…

At least two residences are pelted by eggs -- and one had fireworks salute, police say.
At least two incidents have left some chickens working overtime and some Lower Macungie homeowners none too happy. According to state police at Fogelsville, two vehicles pulled up to the home of Robyn Merithew at 4792 Belmont Drive at 3:10 a.m. Aug. 18 and pelted the exterior with nine dozen eggs. Not content to simply leave the home dripping in goo, those involved lit fireworks to add to the festivities. Cleanup involved professional cleaning with an estimated cost of $1,000, police said. A small, dark car with a loud muffler reportedly was involved as well as a larger white car. Several miles away, James Langmayer of 6562 Rutherford Drive reported an incident of eggs being thrown at his house as well, but without the fanfare of fireworks…

Here are a few of the benefits of starting your day off with eggs.
According to the Web site www.lifehack.org, there are at least seven good reasons to eat eggs in the morning. 1. They keep you full. The protein in eggs helps keep you satisfied longer by sustaining your energy levels. 2. They’re inexpensive. Most large Grade A eggs cost around $2 per dozen. 3. They contribute to brain development and memory. Eggs contain the nutrient choline, which stimulates brain development and function, and has been linked to increasing memory retention. 4. They won’t make your cholesterol worse. Even though eggs contain a significant amount of cholesterol, it has been disproven that they’ll cause an increase in yours. 5. They’re a good source of protein. Whole eggs are a good source of complete protein – meaning they…
