Life's Simple Pleasures

Some of my favourites are crumpets, french toast and scones.  In fact, we have scones for breakfast every Saturday morning, it's a tradition I just cannot break. My children don't even need to ask what is for breakfast on a Saturday morning, they know what they can look forward to already.  Sometimes I vary the scone recipe, I have even made lavender scones.  We set the table all pretty, lay out the place mats, put the jams on the table and most importantly, the cream.  We enjoy the scones either with filter coffee or tea(that's for when we are out of filter coffee).  French toast is also a family favourite, it is so versatile as it can be enjoyed with tomato sauce on, syrup, sprinkled cinnamon and sugar, honey, grated cheese or strips of bacon... everyone eats it the way they like it.  I enjoy a savoury one first with tomato sauce on, if I can manage to fit in another, I will put syrup on my second slice. Now that you are feeling all hungry, why not go beat up some eggs and whip up a slice or two of delicious french toast.                                                                                                                                                                      

Why it is called "french toast", I have read, has nothing to do with the French but it most certainly does sound better than saying "egg bread for lunch" though doesn't it.
