I am convinced that the best mornings start with Ben asking one simple question, “Want to go to breakfast?” Of course the answer is always yes!, and this time we went to a new spot for breakfast and I brought my camera with me. Two things that never happen.
We headed down to Saluna on King Street based off of the beautiful photos we saw on instagram; and their reasonable prices.
Ben and I couldn’t decide between two specials, so we ordered both!
Ben got the coconut pancakes with poached peaches and maple syrup, while I ordered the coconut blueberry loaf with fresh fruit, greek yogurt, and maple syrup. When our meals arrived Ben’s looked so much better than my one piece of bread… but looks can be deceiving.
I took one bite into my bread and the flavors just exploded in my mouth. The bread was so heavy that I was glad I only had one piece… one piece that I no longer wanted to share.
I could taste the maple syrup and butter, so much butter, in every bite. I couldn’t help but push Ben’s fork out of the way so I could take every last bite.
Needless to say after a breakfast like that we didn’t need any lunch. Although I did stop Ben eating the last slice of pumpkin bread, so I got in on the action.
For dinner I whipped up a chicken breast baked over top of leeks and garlic. I honestly had no idea what I was doing with it, just that we had leftover leeks so I needed to do something with ’em. They take up so much room in the fridge. While the chicken was baking I threw in some stuffing as well.
I was actually a bit shocked by this one. I wasn’t expecting it to taste so good, but I would without a doubt make it again. As for a recipe… I just pan seared two chicken breasts for 3 minutes each side. Then placed 2 chopped leeks in the bottom of a baking dish along with minced garlic. Chicken on top, salt and pepper, then into the oven at 350°F for 35-40 minutes.
After dinner we watched Arthur Christmas (we had a day of Christmas decorating prior – so we kept in the spirit) and I couldn’t help but cut some slices of pumpkin pie because, “There’s a happy feeling nothing in this world can buy,when they pass around the coffee and the pumpkin pie!”
Oh, we totally ate apple pie for breakfast this morning… but you’ll have to head to instagram for a photo of that.
