syrup, it's what's for breakfast!

My niece and nephew like to have what they call "Syrup Breakfast" because, as my nephew pointed out they're, "Syrupean". They do, in fact, come from a family that loves anything you can liberally apply syrup to. I made and ate plenty of pancakes, French toast and waffles when I was younger. The fried peanut butter sandwich could also be included on the Syrup Breakfast list - although I prefer it for lunch! 

One of the best gifts I ever received was my own waffle iron. I think I was 9 or 10 years old. Most fascinating pancake experience was on a trip to a relatives with my grandparents - we stopped somewhere for breakfast and the pancakes I ordered were as big as the plate. A dinner-sized plate. That blew my young mind!

This morning, at my house, it was French toast. Whipped up my recipe with egg, half and half (I usually use milk or soy milk, but had the half & half), cinnamon and vanilla. Oh, and the bread was sesame semolina (a couple days old makes the best FT).
