California Living: Breakfast in Monterey

Mr. Branflake and I spent another weekend in Monterey with our awesome brother and sister-in-law.
You know you're well loved when a breakfast like this is waiting for you when you wake up. 

Famous California citrus. Super sweet. I ate it.
I know. Let's all gasp. *GASP!*

Those apple fritters were divine. DIVINE!

Fruit is really pretty to photograph. Too bad I hate to eat it.
Especially fresh mangoes. Nothing is worse than fresh mangoes.
Well, maybe watermelon. Blech!

Crispy potatoes and maple bacon apple organic chicken sausage.
(Whew! Say that ten times fast!)

A perfect breakfast.

Cheers to happy bellies and full hearts!


  1. YUM this breakfast looks out of this world insanely delicious! my mouth is watering. and i cannot believe you don't like fresh mangos. they are my fave summer fruit. you gotta try an australian one. they are unbeatable :) x

  2. That's nearly an English breakfast - Californian style. I LOVE everything (including the fruit :).

  3. I had some oatmeal for breakfast this morning and this spread has me in total breakfast envy.

  4. MMMhhhmm! I just ate breakfast and now that I've seen these photos, I'm hungry again.

  5. Breakfast!!! I do love a big breakfast. :) It looks like you had a fun time with your loved ones.

  6. You don't like fruit!? Goodness, I've never met anyone like you :) Everything looks scrumptious!

  7. I'm getting a cold, so feel free to send that citrus through the computer! :)

  8. Are you serious?? I don't even like most of those foods, but I want to eat them. SO much.

  9. It must be a sign that I'm feeling better because all that food looks delish!

  10. Y U M. You know I'm crazy about a beautiful breakfast–especially if you're sharing it with people you love!

  11. HI!!! It's Gina from IG I didn't know you had a blog, I do too!!! I'm so glad I found you!!! (sorry for all the obnoxious explanation marks LOL)

    I shouldn't read blogs this late at night, because my next meal is breakfast when I awake and this post made me so hungry, great photos and yummy food!

  12. omg....dying for an american breakfast now!

  13. I wonder if they'd host me? hee hee. Sunny Cali and a home cooked breakfast? Yes please! They had me at the sausage and home fries. xo

  14. Dearest Branflake, what is your aversion to delicious, delectable fruit? So sweet and juicy, mmmm... ;)
