Breakfast Heaven

I don't know if you know that you can now buy proper Irish butter in the U.S. I get my Kerry Gold at Trader Joe's since it is the best price I've found. Warning...once you try it you will be spoiled for any other butter. It's a little pricey but oh my how good it is.

Anyhow, a truly scrumptious breakfast treat is homemade bread toasted and smeared with lots of Kerry Gold butter and then topped off with Bonne Maman confit de framboise (raspberry preserves). It really can't get any better than this, especially when accompanied by a nice cup of strong Irish tea. And yes, it's what I had for breakfast along with a couple of sunny side up eggs and locally sourced market bacon. I'm happy.
