a nice breakfast

About two weeks ago someone in our household had a birthday, and requested this breakfast. Well actually, I didn't know it was going to be breakfast - we arrived at lunch time and ate what they made - which happened to be brunch. And it turned out to be amazing:  french toast with pecan butter and fresh fruit (and a mimosa for the birthday girl). The thing I love about this restaurant, in addition to the food, is that most of the ingredients are seasonal and local. Even the bacon. Which I also tried, thanks to my husband, who allows me to steal things off his plate quite frequently. Bananas aren't really local, so just ignore them, but see the orange slices up there in the photo? They're blood oranges, and the photo doesn't really do them justice. They are a beautiful, dark translucent red, and are in season right now. And thanks to where I live, they're also local. (It still amazes me to see oranges growing on trees in my own neighborhood). So, no new recipe for now, just wanted to share the experience. Happy birthday, whenever that is for you. Enjoy the day, and maybe some french toast as well.
