Hey world, I’m officially in my mid-twenties and it seems to be okay and not soul-crushing. It’s nice of Jesus to pop back in for my birthday this year. That’s all I got folks because really that’s all I know about him except that he would have wanted some of my savoury french toast.
Anyways, started out the morning with a 4.5km run / battle with the cyclists (he called me stupid, I called him a fuckface – definitely not a what would Jesus do moment) and then on to breakfast.
I have a thing about sweet breakfasts. In my head they sound like the best idea ever, but when it finally gets in my mouth I enjoy like a couple bites and then I’m pretty much over the fact that my mouth tastes like a sugar cube. Which is why I was dying to try a savoury french toast recipe. It’s pretty simple and all about the yummy things you get to add on top. The recipe I used said to use a French baguette which obviously adds +10 Frenchiness but you could also use normal bread or Challah bread if you are lucky enough to have it close by (damn you Brisbane!)
