Challah French Toast

Happy Monday!  Are you on your fourth cup of coffee?  No? Just me.  Hmmm. Moving on. 

I don't know what made me purchase a loaf of Challah bread over the weekend at the food store, but it was a wonderful purchase at that.  I mean, for one, it's a gorgeous piece of bread! Secondly, I haven't had a slice of this beauty in a looong time. I mean,  I'm half Jewish. That's not cool.  The not eating the Challah in a while, not the Jewish thing. Oh, you got that already?  Sorry.  It's Monday and I'm a bit slow. What can I say?  :)

The first thing I thought of when I saw this bread staring me down was "french toast"!  Omg! Yes!  I then immediately took out my phone and text messaged my hubby, with a photo of the bread, of course, and said, " Breakfast. French Toast. Tomorrow. Be There."  I just got an LOL reply.  I'll take what I can get.  I also haven't made or eaten french toast in a while. I know, seriously, what's wrong with me?! But I made this Sunday morning, and uh, it was flippin' fantastic! Challah bread has a sweeter taste to it and just has a wonderful flavor for french toast, along with the vanilla that's in the milk mixture.

Since Sunday was my rest day from working out, I really didn't care what I ate that day. Honestly though?  This bread is thicker and heavier so I could only devour one and a half pieces.  The hubby had two pieces and loved it, too!  Our tummies were satisfied and ready to take on the rest of the day. Which, in my case, was doing laundry, cooking some more, and sunbathing for less then an hour because I became so bored. Or was it the beads of sweat dripping down profusely because of the 90 degree temps?  Unless I'm at the beach, I can't really lay outside in the sun without becoming bored for some reason.  I'm weird. I get it.

Your next breakfast should be this french toast!  And you guessed it!  Another Ina recipe.

Because,well, she's perfect!
