Oh wow, did I have breakfast! DH is going all out this Valentine's Day. He went into my catering and cake decorating supplies and got a couple of fancy plates, a large cookie cutter and red food colouring.

He made heart shaped Cranberry French Toast in which he added pure cranberry juice and red colouring to the eggs and cut the bread into hearts. He topped it with a warm raspberry sauce and whipping cream. The plating, taste and originality were perfect.

Am I spoiled or what?

After the last two weeks you've endured, you deserved this so no, you aren't spoiled, you are recognized adn that's better than spoiled.


I had brownies for breakfast. It's the only meal that I can eat any kind of sweets at.

I had 3 slices of French Toast for breakfast. The other day as a treat I bought a loaf of the Texas toast sized bread. I love those thick slices of French toast.

I agree, Texas Toast makes the best French Toast! We used it when I was a camp cook - I can't tell you how many loaves we went through serving it once a week all summer to 600 kid campers and staff!

Oh Laurie, your DH is a sweetheart. How thoughtful. Hubby brought me flowers first thing this morning, and then took me out to breakfast for V-day...had a wonderful spinach and mushroom omelet. He's a sweetheart, too.
