Morning in a French Meadow

I love a good breakfast, it’s pretty much my favorite meal of the day. I love breakfast so much I’ll eat it morning, noon and night. Do you get the idea? And when I find a favorite food, I want to eat it all the time. So it will come as no surprise when I say that I haven’t stopped thinking about my Breakfast Quesadilla last January at The French Meadow Bakery & Cafe in Minneapolis. Despite my love of this quesadilla and my inability to forget it, I hadn’t been back to The French Meadow because there are so many great places to eat and so little time.

You can imagine my childlike glee when I learned that a new French Meadow had opened in St. Paul, what a perfect excuse to eat there again! I made a rule for myself, however, I had to try something new. After a great deal of soul searching, I landed on the “Zone” Omelette. It was good, but it was no Breakfast Quesadilla:

My “Zone” Omelette: Three egg whites & one yolk, chevre, organic spinach, scallions, sun-dried tomatoes, side of organic mixed greens & organic sprouted toast (vegetarian)

The Husband really liked his selection. He mentioned a few things about the fresh flavors and the salmon, but I secretly think he liked the meal because he could slather cream cheese all over everything. He had the Eggs & Smoked Salmon:

eggs and salmon
The Husband’s Eggs & Smoked Salmon: Organic Schultz scrambled eggs, smoked wild pacific salmon, cream cheese, organic spinach, side of organic mixed greens & organic sprouted toast

And because we didn’t know how long it would be until we’d be back, we made sure to save room for a scone:

White chocolate and cranberry scone.
