Like most working adults, Friday is my favorite weekday! But unlike most full-time working adults, I don’t work on Fridays, which I reserve as my “me time” and errands day, meeting friends or scouting for things for my foodblog. Yeah! For almost 2 years now, I haven’t really shopped for things like clothing or anything related to fashion. My shopping list now only includes plates and dining wares! Kinda weird but it makes me happy.

As I’ve gotten new things from Crate and Barrel (I’ll write a separate blog about this store), I’m excited to use them and to see them in photos. Today, I’d be having that chance for breakfast. And on this “special” occasion, I made Crunchy French Toast Served with Scrambled Eggs, Sausages, Sautéed Mushrooms, Roasted Tomatoes, Alfalfa salad.

I believe that in cooking there is no right nor wrong, especially when you’re cooking for your loved ones. We know what they want! Breakfast could be the most boring meal of the day (especially with kids around), but you can always add some twist to make it interesting and fun. Like in cooking this French Toast, don’t be afraid to explore the possibilities! For the crunch, I also tried digestive biscuits, Chocolate Digestive and Marie.

If you don’t like a French Toast with texture or crunch, you can try my other French Toast version.
