Here's a peek...

At our Saturday mornings. We like to go out to breakfast after Mr. J wakes up. So Saturday we headed up to the French Laundry downtown Fenton. I cannot say enough about how much I LOVE the French Laundry.

Jonah's Scone and my coffee. I love that they serve the coffee in odd mugs that don't match each other. Nathan's was solid red and it was advertising for Holly, Mi. I loved ny mug on Saturday.













The flower on our table. I don't have pictures of them, but the chairs don't match either. In the summer you can sit outside. I feel very Parisian when I get to dine alfresco at the Laundry.



















Jonah's MONSTROSITY of a pancake. It was seriously, the hugest pancake I have ever seen in a restaurant. It was larger than the plate. I used Nathans coffee cup for scale so you could see how large it was. No, Nathan did not have a shot of espresso. That was a regular sized coffee cup.













A very full happy Jonah after eating a scone and pancake. They also have old fashioned high chairs not the traditional ones,. I wasn't going to use the cover, but he kept sliding forward in the chair so we had to so he wouldn't slide on out the bottom.













I love lazy Saturdays!

Oh my! That is the biggest pancake I've ever seen! I LOVE French Laundry too! I feel very "uppity" and almost "snobbish" when I go there. lol Chris and I stopped in there this summer on a saturday after we enjoyed a nice afternoon of riding around on his motorcycle. Their sandwiches are huge! I want to go in there on a cold day and have their French Onion Soup, but I don't want to pay the price for it. (Remember, Chris and I are the cheapest people alive! lol)

grace - you could probably eat alot there too. I'm pretty sure all the meat is organic and all the other good stuff you are looking for. It's a lot like zingermans. Actually alot of their stuff IS from zingermans.
