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.

Snack #3

Cream tea and scones, Queen's Lane, Oxford, UK

Our friend Nick suggested that we try a traditional English cream tea before leaving England.  It made for a great afternoon snack.  The tea was nice and warm.  The scones were pleasantly crisp on the outside and tender and crumbly on the inside with plump, juicy raisins.  The clotted cream was something we’ve never had before.  It was like butter mixed with whipped cream, and slightly sweet.  The jam tasted of fresh English strawberries.
