French Toast Friday

I am exhausted. I feel like I say that more than the average twenty-five year old but this week has seriously kicked my butt. Work was pretty steady, all of the physical labor of our flooring work prep AND coming off of TWO busy weekends I just really needed a night to relax. My house is a mess, laundry needs to be done and with all the rain this week my car really needs to be washed and the dog needs a bath but all of that was on hold last night. Last night I made Croissant French Toast, worked on the floors for just a bit and then was in bed by 9:00. It was pure bliss to get a full night sleep.

It was pure bliss partially because of the croissant French toast I made as well. French toast has always been number two on my list of breakfast foods. I am a pancake girl. But man, this French toast just might have moved up to the number one spot! I think what made this recipe so great was that it was on croissants instead of just regular sandwich bread, which I never would have thought to do on my own! Thanks to Ree my breakfast for dinner spread will never be the same!
