R.W. Cronenweth, a regular at the Grass Lake Diner, is here this morning. It's a real pleasure talking with him! He says he's a southerner — from the Hudson area! OK, he's really from Texas.

"To me, opening a can and dumping it on a plate is not cooking food," chef Matt Foster is telling us. "To me, you can't make corned beef hash out of a can. You open that can, and it smells like dog food."

A repeated question for Gonzo this morning: How much weight have you gained this week? He hasn't weighed himself the last couple of days, so no telling yet. His biggest gain in one of these "Michigan's best" competitions? Four pounds, eating ice cream.

Apparently, we're eating Chuck's breakfast — the South of the Border omelet. No worries: He gets to share our food, which includes a breakfast burrito, cinnamon rolls, a pancake, oatmeal and more omelets — including the Bunny Omelet (broccoli, cauliflower and more).

We're talking about websites and other media that point the way for good restaurants. Mike suggests chowhound.com. Chuck recommends michiganflavor.com. Of course, there's Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.
