Breakfast For Dinner and Essie Love

Last night to cap off our weekend I convinced the hubby to have breakfast for dinner. Does anyone else love that besides me? I can con him into breakfast for din {or, brenner as I like to call it} about one time a year, so we made sure it was a good one. My meal of choice? French Toast. He added that if he was having French Toast for dinner then he was definitely adding sausage and bacon, too. Not a problem.

Sorry for the bad photo. This was devoured quickly!

Here is my recipe:

-2/3 cup milk
-4 eggs
-2 tsp ground cinnamon
-Butter for the frying pan
-Maple syrup and powdered sugar for topping

-Beat milk, eggs and cinnamon in a small bowl.
-Transfer mixture to shallow dish
-Heat large frying pan over medium heat with a few tablespoons of butter
-Dip each piece of bread {both sides} into mixture and add to pan
-Cook on both sides until done
-Slice, serve and top with preferred toppings

In my book, French Toast is not French Toast with out powdered sugar on top. That's the way I grew up eating it and I can't have it with out! I wish I would've remembered some fresh berries to top with also, but next time that will happen.


My Mom and I got a manicure and polish change for our pedicures this Saturday, a great way to spend the afternoon out of the blasting hot weather we have had. I have two new favorite colors!

We both got this for our manicures and I am obsessed. Essie describes it perfectly as a beachy sand pink with hints of sheer shimmer. Absolutely perfect.

This was my pedicure color and it is hands down my favorite coral I have come across. THE perfect coral/pink that isn't too bright as I start to lose my tan.

Side note, we ran by the drug store before our manis to buy the colors we wanted instead of using the salons colors. I am thrilled to add them to our stash! 

How was everyone your weekend? Hope y'all have a wonderful start to your week!

Yum! That french toast looks so good! I also love both of those Essie colors. I usually get the Ballet Slippers color on my nails but I'm really loving the Hamptons color too! Have a great Monday!

We always had brenner (love that!) when I was growing up, but my son is like your husband! Thanks for the pretty polish recommendations!

French toast is my favorite breakfast food!! I actually had it yesterday :) We make it for Christmas breakfast every year and we get the cinnamon swirl bread so less work for me :) And I love essie polish. I got 2 new fall colors last week!!

My fiance doesn't like breakfast for dinner either, but I do! So, like you, it only happens once or twice a year. Love the Essie colors you picked out!

Ooooh I love breakfast for dinner (or pretty much any other time)! The nail polish colors are all too cute.

Too funny, my mom made us french toast this past weekend. It was dressed with syrup and some fresh blueberries. Umm so good! I love pink polish, it's so girly!

Thanks for stopping by! I am now a follower as well. Going to grab some tea and read some of your post :).

I have been craving french toast my ENTIRE pregnancy. After reading this I may make myself some in the morning. Love breakfast for dinner as well and those colors are fab!
