Sunday Morning Breakfast....

Every few weeks my
daughter will come up
from Milwaukee
for a day or two..
usually when her
The Island Scout,
is traveling for
Wasn't she a beautiful bride..
Wasn't he a handsome groom...
And, after they were married
for about 3 years,
they blessed us with this
wonderful little

Now my son-in-law
being a Southern boy
likes to eat!
So, for Sunday morning
brunch I made
Quiche Lorraine... Baked apple stuffed
French toast...(SO GOOD)

Here's the quick version of it..
French bread sliced about 1/2" thick.
Layer it into a heavily buttered pan.
Top with 1 can of apple pie filling.
Top with 1 more layer of 1/2" slices of French bread
Whip together: 8 eggs and about
                       3-4 cups of milk and 1 t vanilla.
                       (should be enough milk to thoroughly soak bread)
Pour egg mixture over bread.
Pop in fridge overnight.
Next morning-heat oven to 350º
Top bread mixture with 1/2 cup softened butter
          mixed with 1/2 cup brown sugar and
          1 teaspoon cinammon or apple pie spice
Sprinkle with pecans..
I only sprinkle half because
we have some that like nuts..
and then we have some nuts
that don't like nuts!
Bake about 45 mins to 1 hour until golden brown.
Most top it with syrup here
but I like my own naked!

And  you need a big old
baked ham on the side!

Even the little guy
loves to eat...
and will eat
just about anything...
And imagine this...
"reading" him a story..
Can you imagine?
Imagine that?

I think we might just
get lucky and
he will grow up
normal in spite
of SweetCheeks
Either that or he
will have a
phenomenal imagination!
I can hardly wait
til he starts talking
and interacting
that ought to be
good for a movie!
