The Breakfast Club

Hello friends, Happy Hump DAY!

Natalie was so sweet to send me this wonderful article about Bike Month, 10 Reasons to Love National Bike Month. Check it out, it’s some great stuff!

I stayed up way to late last night to watch the TBL finale, it’s the only show I watch so I feel a little connected! I sure paid for the late night when my alarm went off at 5am!!! Even thought it was hard to pull myself out of bed, I am glad I did, because I had a great 5 mile run with Fast Jill and Mr.Rick.


This morning I was so blessed to have breakfast with one of my dearest friends Teracita. I promised her some of my yummy French Toast. I hope I delivered!!

I dipped 4 slices of bread in a batter made with 2 eggs, 1/2 cup vanilla almond milk, pinch salt, cinnamon and vanilla.

For a topping, I simmered a handful of blackberries in 2-3 tbsp water and 1 tbsp honey until they were warmed up. I then topped the bread with a tbsp of my last jar of Naturally Nutty PB, I can’t believe it’s lasted this long!!! This by far is my favorite of them all!

I had 2 slices cut into halves with a sprinkle of powdered sugar and a little banana.

I love cooking for others like I said before, but I think my favorite meal to cook for others is breakfast by far! I think I should start a breakfast club!

What’s your favorite meal to cook for people?

Teracita was so sweet to drop me off at work (carpooling=1 point for TSL)! I have a long day ahead of me, and I am getting tired already and I am only half way through!!!

See you tonight!

That breakfast looks so pretty! Breakfast is also my favorite meal to make for people. I love making an extra oatmeal concoction for my Mom. It's just such a great way to start the day!

I also love making french toast for company. But I only make it once in a long while as I make the naughty version w/ challah bread and all the good stuff that you cannot eat everyday. ^_^

My favorite meal to cook is dinner. I'm not as skilled at most breakfast foods.
Excellent breakfast!

TBL is seriously the one of the only shows that could get me to stay awake to see the end.. I fall asleep during murder mysteries!
