Only out of work for 5 months now and my life has been reduced to searching the interweb for recipes, browsing for jobs on, and weekly surf trips. Well today all the hard work has finally paid off- I found the perfect recipe for French Toast! Thank you STARFLOWER for opening my eyes to a new way to enjoy one of my favorite meals. So simple, but when it comes out of the oven it will appear you spent all day in the kitchen, and all week searching Grandma's recipe book for just the right meal to wow your family.

I chose to share my initial attempt at French Toast Casserole with Steven, my neighbor. I could tell it was a big hit because after the first bite he dropped his guard and shared his top secret plans for Seattle nightclub/bar domination. I was kinda hurt that he didn't ask for seconds, but I'll just blame that on all of the stress he's dealing with while trying to make some pretty big decisions.

I think next time I'm going to change the recipe a little and add apple slices like Jackie suggested, and maybe a little more brown sugar on top.

Oh yeah, last Thursday- one of my best days out at the Jetty ever! Not huge, but at least head high, breaking top to bottom most the way through, off-shore winds, sunny out, and mid-week crowds.
