We love special weekend breakfasts.  I think going out for breakfast is actually our favorite meal to dine out for, but lately I’ve just been trying new things at home, and this is one we’ve quickly grown fond of.  You can switch up the berries with whatever  you like.  We had blackberries this morning, yum!  (Locals, they’re only 89 cents at Paul’s this week!)
