Meal#98: Breakfast

Yum! Wild Alpine strawberries that we picked on the side of the road, cherries, whole wheat bread with butter, and Beaufort cheese! MMM…


Meal #47: Breakfast

What a lovely Alpine morning! After a leisurely walk whilst picking beautiful flowers (to flower aficionados: yes, those are ranunculus, and yes, they grow wild here!), I had toasted pain de campagne, or country bread, with butter and apricot preserves from the Savoie region. Why can’t our apricots taste this good? The jam is sooooo flavorful. Fruity and floral with the most concentrated apricot flavor. I think I’m going to buy thirty of these little jars so I can bathe in it! I also had a great cup of strong French roast coffee and some sweet and tangy cherries.
