Meal #70: Breakfast

Toad in a hole with a fried egg on the side, Jessie's apartment, Paris, France

I proudly created this amazing American breakfast for Charity and I to enjoy, Cyrille wouldn’t go near it.  In France, unlike America, the French only eat a small breakfast consisting of sweets only.  They eat sweet cakes or sweet breads covered in Nutella, very sugary cereals, cookies, candies, and anything else that has a high sugar content.  They refuse to eat anything savory in the morning, it litterally disgusts them.  But, since we are American, Charity and I love savory breakfast.  The toad in a holes I made were awesome.  I used nice crusty bread from the corner bakery, nice French butter, and eggs that were fresh and hormone free.  A great way to start the day in Paris!

Meal #62: Breakfast

Ham and cheese croissant with hard-boiled egg , Paul and Kristien's B&B, Bruuge, Belgium
Our wonderful bed and breakfast hosts prepared an awesome breakfast for us!  There was a basket of various breads, butter, ham, cheese, hard-boiled eggs, tea, coffee, and fresh squeezed orange juice.  Charity and I both opted for the croissants which we made into sandwiches using liberal amounts of butter, ham, and cheese.  It was perfectly flaky and the ham, cheese, and butter were all high quality.  The hard-boiled eggs were perfectly cooked and tasted fresh from the farm.  The juice was excellent, and the tea and coffee were great as well.  A good way to start the day in Bruuge.

Meal #60: Dinner

Breakfast at Tiffany's burger, Atomic Burger, Oxford, UK

I’ve wanted to try Atomic Burger since my first week in Oxford, and I finally did!  We used some coupons we found in a magazine to get free milkshakes and chips with our burgers.  What a deal!  We ate with our Oxford friend Stu and our DeKalb friend Eric.  It was a pretty good meal.  I ordered the “Breakfast at Tiffany’s burger” which was cleverly named as it included a fried egg (breakfast) and onion rings (Tiffany’s).  It was very tasty.  The meat was juicy, the egg was fried to perfection with a runny yoke.  The bun was crispy with a thin layer of flour, (I love it when they do that).  The onion rings were perfectly crisp and slightly sweet.  The chips had a generous dusting of some type of spicy concoction that gave them just enough kick to not be forgotten.  The milkshake was smooth and creamy, and cold.

Cheese burger with carmelized onions and barbeque sauce, Atomic Burger, Oxford, UK

Charity had the bacon barbeque cheeseburger with carmelized onions.  The burger was greasy and delicious. I enjoyed the real bacon after only getting English bacon for the last week.  It was really good but I couldn’t finish it, I only ate half.  The chips were nice and spicy, and the milkshake was sweet and refreshingly cold.
