July 26, Nikkipolani posted the most seductive recipe with photos for French toast baked in honey-pecan sauce. Reading her directions, I just knew chunks of fresh dieced peaches packed in with the sourdough bread just before baking was just the ticket.
Served upside down-cake style, the only thing I would do differently next time is splash a jigger of rum into the brown sugar, honey and syrup mixture. I would bring this all to a boil before adding to the pan. The texture and flavor would be worthy of canonization into the recipe hall of fame.
Presented with sausage patties and eggs over medium, this was a good brunch to set Sunday aside from the rest of the week.
My husband's change in travel plans meant we had the whole weekend together. Daytime he continued to work on the wine cabinet while I played with my stained glass.
When we dine, unless we have not dog-loving company, we let our puppies play on the patio. Should they start to wander off, our antennae go up and we gather them back to relative safety of under our table.
|Scabbers- Harry Potter's Rat|
My Reno was very interested in the barbecue. A tail, not unlike the one on Harry Potter's Scabbers flashed by. Uh-oh.
My hero, not wanting a rat to either bite the dogs or set up home in his Airstream trailer- like stainless steel barbecue vaulted over me to shake out the reservationless rodent. Who promptly leaped at then under me.
When I stopped screaming, what words did my beloved calm me with....
"Boy, I wish I had a camera for that."
