Last weekend we had guests over for breakfast. I think breakfast is a great meal for entertaining. The kids are bright and happy, you can eat outside, the menu can be simple.
Our favourite breakfast is French Toast. I am not sure how french-y french toast really is. The kids call it egg-y bread. We take a loaf of sourdough bread and dip slices into a mixture of egg and milk (cream if feeing decadent). The bread is then fried in a little butter until golden. I work on one egg per person, with just enough milk to loosen the mixture up a little.
You can go to town with the toppings. The Mr loves banana, bacon and maple syrup. I prefer homemade lemon curd, raspberries and greek yogurt. I give the kids a little ramekin of maple syrup and they dip their "soldiers" in.
We have a little routine, the kids play, I make the french toast and the Mr makes the cappuccino. It is a blissful start to the weekend.
Hoping you are enjoying your weekend,
