Croissants: Holiday Breakfast of Champions


Our Thanksgiving was seriously scaled back this year as a result of a broken foot (Heal quickly Miss Morgan), knee replacement surgery (Here's to a quick recouperation Bionic Mimi), my bum knee (MRI scheduled for Thursday) and some serious inclement weather (SNOW).

For the first time in many moons, I watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in its entirety while sipping bellinis and nibbling on warm croissants compliments of the frozen foods section of Trader Joe's.

I always buy my croissants at Standard Baking Company but my knee, the weather and icy roads were working against me so I asked Marco to pick up something yummy at Trader Joe's for Thanksgiving breakfast. My hunting and foraging husband came through in spades.

These little dandies thaw and rise overnight at room temperature. After 20 minutes in the oven you've got buttery, flaky yumminess. Just add some cafe au lait (or a bellini) for a complete treat, definitely not everyday fare but certainly perfect for a holiday morning.
