What I’m Reading

I fell in love with a centerpiece idea I saw on A Beautiful Mess last week.

It shouldn’t have surprised me to see it there.  After all, these are the girls who dreamed up the guest room cart.

Elsie suggested having a tray full of breakfast carbs along with lots of butter and jam options, and setting it out for weekend guests on those mornings when cooking a big breakfast isn’t on the agenda.  This idea came at exactly the right moment.  I saw it after I had finished eating dinner with AGOMYR at Le Pain Quotidien.  We love splitting a baguette (or two, in this case) and slathering it with their jams and chocolate spreads.  On this particular visit, I realized a combination of the dark chocolate spread with berry jam on top would be to die for.  AGOMYR one-upped me by laying the dark chocolate on first, and topping it with sea salt.  If this combination is such a beloved dinner favorite, why wouldn’t it would just as well at breakfast?  Who wants to sign up for our guest room next?
