Breakfast Deliciousness for Dinner


Just a quick post today.  I wanted to tell you about this fabulous recipe that the girls and I had for dinner the other night.  The girls inhaled this and I really enjoyed it too.  It was so delicious looking and smelling that I forgot to take a photo before I started eating it, hence the shot you see above!  The recipe, from Cooking Light, can be found here .  I made a few personal tweaks: no shallots (who wants oniony-garlicky flavor in French toast?  eww), no buttermilk – just extra regular milk, no pepper (again, with French toast? why?), and I substituted cinnamon for the nutmeg (cuz I like it waaaayyy better) and I substituted gouda for the gruyere. (again cuz I like it better)  If you haven’t popped over and looked at this recipe yet you may be thinking to yourself, cheese in French toast?  And I would say to you, Yes Sir or Ma’am!  Tis a good thing!  So do yourself a favor and whip this up for a fun dinner some night soon.

Another quick note I wanted to make.  The submissions for the October Photo Hunt have started to roll in.  I have not even started creating my shots for this yet (yep, slacker on my own photo hunt!) so I won’t be popping over to have a look at any of the hunts just yet.  I never like to feel as though I may have been influenced by someone else’s work before I do my own, so I will hold off having a look until I’ve completed my own photos.  I just wanted any of you who’ve already submitted, or may be doing so soon, to know that I am not ignoring you!  There is still plenty of time to participate, so if you are interested in joining this month’s hunt please do!  Reminder: submissions are due Oct. 31st, but we’re pretty loosey-goosey around here about blogging deadlines! 😉


  1. I’m always up for ‘breakfast do dinner’ and this recipe, with your changes, sounds and looks yummy! 🙂

  2. Yummy! Your version sounds better than the original recipe.
    OMG I can’t believe you’ve been slacking on your own photo hunt! Hurry up already!!! LOL

    • Yeah, pepper and shallots with French toast sounded pretty weird to me!
      I’ve made a list of a bunch of idioms I can try shooting – I’m going to try to work on them today and choose which ones look best, hopefully!

  5. Sounds yummy! 🙂

    This month has flown by and I have no idioms to show for it. I’ll have to work on that this weekend. I do have a fallback (no pun intended) if I can’t come up with something a little less… lame. 🙂

    • You are very creative Robin – and I’m pretty flexible about photo submissions – so between those two things, I’m sure you will do just fine!
