Day 58- Croissant French Toast with Strawberry Syrup

I'm not a big breakfast person.  I used to LOVE breakfast so much that I would eat eggs or pancakes or french toast for dinner if I was allowed to.  Somewhere along the way, I stopped loving eggs and started just tolerating them, along with many other breakfast foods.  However, I'm proud of myself because I've eaten breakfast every single morning since I started student teaching.  I really do think it helps to start the day out right.  Especially when this breakfast is Croissant French Toast with Strawberry Syrup. 

I found this recipe in a cookbook a few years ago and marked it with a post-it.  Every time I would flip through the book, I'd pause on the page and stare longingly at the picture, wishing that its contents were on my plate and then in my stomach.  Since we were sort of celebrating Valentine's Day today, we decided to finally try this special breakfast.

Even though I've only recently found my way back to breakfast loving, I've always loved Saturday mornings with Tom.  This is usually the lowest stress time of the week for us, and we can spend as much time as we want at the kitchen table with coffee, food fuel for the day, and coupons.  I know this makes us sound like we're 75, but I enjoy it just the same.  Because it's such a low stress time, we can even operate in the kitchen together, dancing and singing and cooking and having a jolly time.  This fabulous breakfast really set the tone for the day- delicious, carefree, and all around lovely.





After breakfast, we watched a lot of Olympics, had a mini dance party, exchanged a few little gifts (although I'm not a big VDay fan, I can't pass up a gifting opportunity), had a delectable dinner at The Melting Pot mmmmmm, and played with our dog.  What a great day!

Thank you, Croissant French Toast with Strawberry Syrup, you made my day.
