Did you know that I once brought my own forks to China? It’s true!

Breakfast pizza! Yep—not pizza for breakfast, but actual breakfast pizza—is what we had Saturday morning this past weekend at Fresh Grounded Faith in O’Fallon, Illinois. Scrambled eggs, cheese, and bacon all on a glorious slice of heaven—it’s a St. Louis thing!
