Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day.
I also believe it is the most important meal, but more so, I believe it is the most delicious.
Favorite. Important. Delicious.
All of those adjectives especially ring true on the weekend.
There is no better time to sleep in, awake to the comforting smell of freshly-brewed coffee and take your leisurely time enjoying a delightful spread of breakfast goodies than on a bright + sunny weekend morning. In fact, it may just be one of my very favoritest things in life.
It is only appropriate then, that on the weekend, I go to one of my very favoritest breakfast places to enjoy one of my very favoritest breakfast foods: Lazy Jane’s scones.
This one was Maple Nut, and I’ve declared it one of my top 3 faves.
I don’t believe for even one second you are lazy.
Your scones are the world’s best.
If you were to ever so graciously give me your recipe, I will name my first born after you.
Boy or girl.
It was a good thing I met up with Jess here, because if it wasn’t for her, I may have gone back to order a second (raspberry, me thinks) and perhaps a third (white chocolate orange coconut also looked fantastic). Instead, we headed over to the brand new Lululemon store and enjoyed a hour of free yoga.
It was stellar.
I am ragingly sore today.
However, the beautiful thing about breakfast is it can take my mind of the fact that with each passing day, I am becoming more and more the G’ma Everythingtarian of my future.
On these arthritic mornings, I turn to my all-time favorite breakfast food: French toast.
The key to French toast is the bread.
I picked up this loaf of Seeded Harvest Boule from Trader Joe’s, which turned out to give a rich, nut-filled crust and a slight sourdough tang to the French toast.
Dipped in the egg mixture (one egg, splash of organic skim milk, drizzle of agave + cinnamon) and fried to the most perfect golden brown, I topped my two-slice breakfast with almond butter, a generous drizzle of agave + extra sprinkle of cinnamon.
Sometimes I’m too cheap to buy real maple syrup.
Turns out, agave syrup is just as delicious.
It should also be noted breakfast was triple-fisted.
Coffee, Diet Coke + a Nessalla lemongrass ginger kombucha were downed at 10:30am.
Luckily, my hearty breakfast + caffeine overdose gave me the much-needed energy I needed to cook almost all day, which is why my kitchen currently looks like this…
And if it has any hope of being cleaned, it’s definitely going to take getting up early and a 2nd round of French toast tomorrow morning.
Because it’s 7:06pm, and I’ve got a hot date with Ryan Gosling + Half-Nelson.
What was the best breakfast you had this weekend? Sharing is caring! (Mine was the scone, by the way).
