All I've wanted these past few days is variations on French toast.

Dear Fleur,

I love making & enjoying all the different variations as well! I Love French toast! YUM ;D
I am also thinking.....of making some today :cheeseheadbeer: French Toast can be eaten at any time. Who does not like dessert for a meal, I am sure that your children will not mind  ;)

My children love it. But I don't always serve it sweet. I did make a savory version in the form of Monte Cristo sandwiches. They were very good, but after several days of this, I now can't stand the sight of French toast!  :D

I'm making spaghetti and meatballs for dinner tonight.

Oh, I completely forgot about Monte Christo sandwiches. YUM  :cheesehead: I love French Toasts in every possible way.

I remember how my mother would make them when I was a child,  they were a bit puffed up, and I thought she was a genius in the kitchen. :D

Monte Christos. Wow, itís been awhile. My mother used to make them with thick homemade bread frequently when we were younger. Iíll ask her to make them again, they are amazingly good. Maybe not exactly the best for the heart with all that grease. But so good. 😊

I never tried Monte Cristos.  I want to now!  I have a daughter whose middle name is Claire, so we celebrated her feast day today with cheeseburger sliders, roast veggies, and french fries... And cheese cake for dessert (coming soon, when the kids are done cleaning the kitchen).

I just realized I wrote Monte Christo instead of Monte Cristo.  :D

I edited my mistake, but not before leading both Christe Eleison and Melkor into error. Mea culpa!

In my defense, it was a very Catholic mistake to make.

Don't worry.  I did not fall into the trap, and that's really all that matters.  Viva CRISTO Rey!  8)

I thought you were all talking about these:

DISPOSE OUR DAYS IN THY PEACE, AND COMMAND US TO BE DELIVERED FROM ETERNAL DAMNATION, AND TO BE NUMBERED IN THE FLOCK OF THINE ELECT.

My husband cooked dinner tonight.  He made grilled catfish, atop a bed of spaghetti with a shrimp, tasso, and portebella cream sauce; there was also a mixed greens salad with feta, grapefruit, and citrus vinegrette

Made chicken curry from scratch for the first time. It is rather spicy, but then, I am rather white.

Poulet ŗ St. Menehould, whose feast day is today.  I'll fix a salad and serve a loaf of sourdough harvest grain bread to go alongside.

Update:. The recipe I used turned out to be glorified "shake'n'bake.  It was tasty, for sure, but too much work for the family to say, "this reminds me of 'shake'n'bake, Mom!" (Which I've never made in my life). But the gravy from the chicken was pretty fantastic.
