Chocolate Chip French Toast

Do you find that you eat more breakfast for dinner when the weather gets cooler? I know we do. My husband used to hate it when I'd cook breakfast for dinner, but he's come around to it. I think it's yummy - and who has time to cook breakfast when you leave at 7 AM?
The other day I made french toast. I mix eggs with a splash of orange juice and a shake of cinnamon. If I have vanilla extract I put a bit of that in as well. Dip my whole wheat bread in the egg mixture and cook
up in a non-stick skillet.

This time I added chocolate chips and powdered sugar to dress it up.
Add Maple Syrup from Whole Foods and you're ready to enjoy!

I'm joining Foodie Friday with Designs by Gollum.

Fall Entry Table

I've had a not so great weekend :( First I got a cold, which prohibited me from going to see our daughter up at law school and enjoy a wonderful meal at Jeff Ruby's steakhouse (which I had saved coupons $ for a month); Second my camera broke and all us bloggers know how terrible a fate this is - a blogger with out a camera is, well not going to be a very good blogger! Finally, while attempting to take pictures of my entry hall with my phone and then figure out how to send them to my email address and download them to my computer - I burned my dinner - chili - which was going to be perfect on a cool autumn evening.
Not to be curtailed, I downloaded a few inspirational photos from the web and a few of pictures that actually came through to my email for us to view.
Isn't this picture from country living magazine adorable! See the chickens under the hall table - I think it adds so much to the quaintness factor (is that a word?) of the room.

Blue and white from Southern Accents - adore!

A table cloth with a lamp and great chair from House Beautiful.

And a mirrored effect from Traditional Home.

Here's my chickens -again sorry for the pictures.

With my pumpkin wreath and leaf votive candle.

Wishing you a wonderful week - I'm off to
