Bacon & eggs.

P4.JPG So it’s early morning, & I decided I wanted a scone. I’m not a sconologist, & I actually don’t like scones from that local scones place that won some kind of scone award. Too much butter. I like good, dry, chalky baking soda. Yeah, told you I don’t know what I’m talking about. But that’s what I like. My favorite scones are from The Patisserie.

I also hate raisins. My favorite scones are raisin scones from The Patisserie. Yeah, I know, there’s something wrong with me. I pick out the raisins, though. No, I don’t like the plain ones. Stop it.

P3.JPGThe Patisserie has been around at least since I was in high school. Erik Mueller & I used to spend $1 to buy a 2 foot long baguette which would be our daily after school meal. The Patisserie has the most amazing hot potato salad (which sells out at lunch time every day. Or at least every day that I decide I want hot potato salad.) & pretty yummy bratwurst (looks gross but tastes great!). And I heard that it’s all non-cholesterol & extremely low calorie. Oh, come on, indulge me.

So this morning I walked hopefully into The Patisserie, with visions of dry, chalky raisin scones. I was greeted cheerfully by the clerk. And then I noticed… there were no raisin scones. Only plain ones. And they looked too big.

P2.JPGI remarked out loud that there didn’t appear to be any raisin scones. “What happened??” I asked. The clerk confessed that raisin scones had not come in today, only blueberry ones… & they had sold out.

“Well, what am I going to do??” I asked, completely distressed. Come on, it was early morning. I wanted a raisin scone.

“How about scrambled eggs & toast?” the clerk said.

“Ok,” I said.

I’m a graduate of PSI Seminars. If I learned anything, it’s how to surrender & switch plans. I had to employ that particular skill here. Go me. Besides, I had to go to work pretty soon.

P1.JPGBreakfast was good. I’d even venture to say it was “gud.” I’ve had eggs & stuff from Zippy’s & they got nothing on The Patisserie. The eggs were super fluffy, light, & buttery. The bacon was… well, bacon always rocks. And the toast wasn’t Love’s sandwich bread burnt in a toaster. It was thick, soft, Patisserie bread slow roasted with a crapload of butter. Ok, so it probably came out of a toaster as well, but it was the best toast I’ve had in years, probably. Maybe because I don’t eat a lot of toast. But you know what I mean.

And to finish off a great breakfast experience, on my way out the clerk said, “Have a beautiful day.” Ah, who needs scones?
