Breakfast Obsessed

Oopsy, I forgot to put up a post last Friday because I was on a plane to San Francisco. This also means I forgot to post my weigh-in for last week, durh. Let me remedy that situation right now!

Mama's in San Francisco
Last Saturday when Eric, myself and our two friends from work went to Mama's, we ended up waiting in line for an hour and a half. Now, I believe that I've said that I turn into a ravenous squirrel beast when I wait too long to eat. This wait certainly qualified me as a ravenous (and grouchy) squirrel beast. As we neared the entrance, an elderly man exited and began talking to two young women in front of us. They asked if it was worth the wait, and without hesitation the man said yes. Despite being said (grouchy) ravenous squirrel beast, my interest was piqued. Breakfast is my absolute favorite meal of the day and the only traditional breakfast food that I've ever met and disliked has been maple syrup (blech).

As we stood on the stoop, waiting for the wait staff to allow us in to order, I perused the menu. That menu is a virtual treasure trove of fantastic breakfast ideas. Before visiting Mama's, it had never occurred to me to use cinnamon swirl bread in my french toast recipes, so the most obvious choice was the Chocolate Cinnamon French Toast with an extra fruit salad to start:

The food was so absolutely worth the long wait.

It was so good that I can't stop thinking about how I want to create my own cinnamon french toast.

Bet you guys can't guess what I'm doing this weekend! *shifty eyes*

What's the best breakfast food you've ever had? Let me know in a comment down below! :)
