Pain perdu

What do the french call french toast? Why, pain perdu, of course. I remember hearing that term in New Orleans but I assumed it was called "lost bread" because the bread got lost in the egg when you dipped it in. But no, according to the experts, pain perdu is so-called as its a way of reclaiming the stale, lost bread. Whatever the reason, it sure tastes yummy, especially how we have it - sprinkled with cinnamon and drowning in maple syrup. Since, finally introducing Jasper to eggs, we've been enjoying lots of yummy things again- scrambled eggs, pain perdu and quiche. Now dont get me started on the quiches here. They are beyond delicious.

It's breakfast time here. I'm just about to make up my jug of juice and then I open up and see this!!!! It's not fair, if I had that for breakfast my arteries would seize up. Looks sooooo yummy!
