PB French Toast

in All Posts

I was craving French Toast this morning, but I also woke up ravenous and thought plain FT just wouldn’t hold me over.

 

Cue… PB French Toast!

I added about 1 tablespoon of melted PB to a beaten egg and then proceeded to make French Toast per the usual.  The result was delicious!

Mmmm… PB chunks!

Plus a side of fruit and maple syrup for dipping.

My Bike

 

Sorry this is rapidly becoming a biking blog! šŸ™‚ I’ll be doing more cross-training, swimming, and a little bit of running (YAY) next week to mix things up, I promise!

 

A few of you have asked for information on my bike:

My bike is a Giant women’s road bicycle (size XS) that I bought used two years ago.

 

I think these bikes typically retail for $1,200+ (ridiculous), but I bought my bike used from a women who had ridden it five times!  I only paid $350.  That’s a hefty investment, but when I bought it, I fully intended to race with it (like I’m finally doing now!).  I think you could find a good road bike for cheaper, though.

The best part of my bike is the pink handlebars, which my dad taped up. šŸ™‚

 

In Other News….

 

We’ve been married for 124 days!  *Tear*

Florida Jan 09 078 - Copy

Plus, it must be engagement season because a lot of ladies in the blog world are getting engaged.  Congrats to Jenn!  I wish you a lifetime of happiness with Bobby.  šŸ™‚

 

How many weddings are you going to this summer?  We only have 1 wedding to attend (in October).  I’m disappointed; I want more!

    PB French toast is seriously brilliant. Mmm, totally craving! And I love your cute taped-up pink handlebars (and the gorgeous wedding photo!). šŸ˜‰

  • Erica May 7, 2009, 4:07 am

    Mmmm that french toast looks so good! I might make some for dinner tomorrow night! Congrats on the anniversary šŸ˜‰ We’re going to….at least 4 weddings this summer but were invited to about 8! Its just a busy year for us for weddings

  • Marisa (Trim The Fat) May 7, 2009, 4:13 am

    Yum! PB french toast sounds great!!

  • Adi (oatonomy.com) May 7, 2009, 4:16 am

    No weddings for me! Bummer. Must be an off-season among my friends šŸ™‚
    That french toast looks aweeesome.

  • Nicole (anotheronebitesthecrust.wordpress.com) May 7, 2009, 4:21 am

    No weddings for me this summer! My friends haven’t started getting married yet.

  • Mrs. LC May 7, 2009, 4:45 am

    I think we have three weddings this summer, the first being this Saturday in Orlando! Plus our one year anniversary. šŸ™‚

  • Jordan May 7, 2009, 4:53 am

    I need a new bike soooo bad. Be sure to review yours. I’m gonna be in Orlando this weekend again, but only to visit Universal and/or Aquatica. I’ll wave in your general direction lol.

  • Moran May 7, 2009, 5:02 am

    So far just one! And am gonna be a bridesmaid!

  • Anonymous May 7, 2009, 5:19 am

    Wow you are a genius with that PB French Toast, sounds delicious!!

    I’m attending a wedding May 23rd, and I love weddings, so I’m really looking forward to it šŸ™‚

  • Apples, Auburn, and Ashley May 7, 2009, 5:46 am

    I will be attending two weddings this summer and am the maid of honor in one of those! Ahhh! šŸ™‚

    My personal record was last summer – I went to four weddings.

  • Dori May 7, 2009, 6:02 am

    The french toast sounds fantastic! I made pumpkin french toast and used the melted PB as a topping, but now I need to try your method!

    I’m going to one wedding this summer — Missy’s sister’s!

    Love your bike. I still have my bike from when I was 10, I want to ride it this year! It is hot pink and purple.

  • Brandi May 7, 2009, 6:05 am

    I have no weddings scheduled! But, our 5 years wedding anniversary is at the end of this month and I can’t believe it!

    pb french toast is a great idea!

  • Christina May 7, 2009, 6:16 am

    Mm I love french toast. It looks like a wonderful breakfast!

    I have 2 weddings to go to this summer/fall, which is exciting because I’ve only been to 2 in my life.

  • Weight and Meditate May 7, 2009, 6:16 am

    Wow, what a fantastic idea putting pb in the mix, yummy.

    I have no plans for weddings this summer, but do have a friend who is having a baby!

  • Carolina John May 7, 2009, 6:38 am

    Nice bike! $350 is a steal for a Giant with aerobars! I paid $550 for my bike, a Jamis ventura with ho aerobars. i couldn’t find a used bike in my size. you’re going to love racing on that.

    fyi, the metric is a ride, not a race. so you should take the aerobars off, it’s a courtesy for the other riders. I don’t know why, but that’s what my bike friends tell me.

    my first bike race is a time trial tonight. I wish i had aerobars. it’s a 10 mile TT.

  • Melissa @ For the Love of Health May 7, 2009, 6:39 am

    This is the second French toast post I have viewed this morning on a blog! Now I REALLY need to make some :-)Great idea with the peanut butter!

    Great looking bike! Bikes can be so expensive but if it’s something you love, go for it!

    I have 2 weddings so far- I am in the wedding party of one and the other one happens to include my younger brother! šŸ™‚

  • krittie May 7, 2009, 6:44 am

    SO, I have had 2 weddings to attend this year so far and I still have 3 more to attend! One is in 2 weeks, which I am the maid of honor and the other 2 are in August. Weddings are so much fun!

  • Amanda (Two Boos Who Eat) May 7, 2009, 6:45 am

    I’m getting married in 59 days! I can’t believe it!

    I’m not going to any other weddings though. We are going to a “mock” wedding at our ceremony/reception site on Saturday though. It’ll be nice to see the place set up for a wedding.

    Congrats on 124 days!

  • Danielle May 7, 2009, 6:49 am

    Pb on French Toast?! What a great idea!
    I have one wedding that I’m in in September and then another one next March. I love weddings! It’s so much fun being in them!

  • Dylan May 7, 2009, 6:52 am

    I have my sister’s wedding in less than two weeks!

    (The french toast looks sooo good)

  • K from ksgoodeats May 7, 2009, 6:55 am

    PB French toast sounds like a gift from heaven – yum!!

  • The Decayed Gentlewoman May 7, 2009, 7:00 am

    Well since your blogging about biking, I have a biking question for you. When I ride my bike, my bottom gets *really* sore. I bought the gel seat that the bike shop recommended and that helped a bit, but I’ve never been able to bring myself to bike regularly because of the pain. Does it stop hurting over time?
    My boyfriend doesn’t get a sore butt when he rides and thinks I’m sitting oddly, I think it has more to do with the way my hips are built versus the way his are.

  • Tami May 7, 2009, 7:02 am

    we do not have bike lanes nor many trails in New Hampshire but in the area where I live there is a group who is trying to get a bike path built, here is the website

    http://www.wowtrail.org/index.html

    only one wedding, my two male friends are getting married and it’s going to be a fabulous time!

  • Caitlin at Healthy Tipping Point May 7, 2009, 7:03 am

    Gentlewoman – Do you have padded bike shorts? I think this helps. Yes, my womanly bits hurt a lot. You have to spend a while in the saddle to get your body used to the sensation and over the bruising. When I biked reguarly before, I found it took about two weeks of dedication riding to break my crotch in. šŸ™‚

  • Rose May 7, 2009, 7:15 am

    Four weddings here! We have two on the same day, so I think Bill and I might be flying solo to each.

  • Hi! I'm Erin May 7, 2009, 7:20 am

    I really like your bike! I’ve been thinking about getting a bike, but I don’t know what kind to get. Not sure if I’d ever want to race it. I’m hopeless inept when it comes to understanding bike gears which I’m pretty sure would be a detriment while racing!

    As for weddings, I think I’m pretty much past all the weddings. Now it’s on to baby showers! I’d much rather go to weddings.

  • Holly May 7, 2009, 7:27 am

    You got a GREAT deal on your bike! I need to find something like that on craigslist when I’m ready to invest.

  • Run Sarah May 7, 2009, 7:28 am

    I’ve ben to one and then there’s my own šŸ˜‰ Your bike looks awesome – I have a cheapie road bike but it has some issues so I need to get it fixed or get a new one.

  • Jennifer May 7, 2009, 7:32 am

    PB french toast looks delicious! I am only going to one wedding so far. Which is sad, I love weddings, I want more!

  • Missy May 7, 2009, 7:36 am

    I am seriously doing that next time I make french toast! Why did I never think of that! I have my sister’s wedding in August!

  • Amy Pacheco May 7, 2009, 7:40 am

    So this might be random but I have a couple of questions about your wedding dress! Do you have a picture of the dress that is close up and where did you get it! From what I can tell it is absolutely stunning!

  • Christy May 7, 2009, 7:48 am

    I love the idea of adding PB to your french toast! That is a must try!

  • eatingbender May 7, 2009, 8:01 am

    Thank you so much, Caitlin! Congrats on being married 124 days – that is a gorgeous picture :o) It’s amazing how fast the time goes! It seems like just yesterday you were See Bride Run, haha!

    So awesome that you got that nice bike for $350! Love the pink handlebars!

    Have a great day!

  • Bec May 7, 2009, 8:03 am

    That french toast looks amazing!

  • Caitlin at Healthy Tipping Point May 7, 2009, 8:06 am

    hey amy – i got the dress at david’s bridal! the style is V9322, you can search for it on the davidsbridal.com website. the model has ZERO curves so the dress looks a little different, however, this dress is ROCKIN if you have curves and want to show them off. i loved my dress! if you want to see more pictures, shoot me an email.

  • mel H May 7, 2009, 8:08 am

    I’m going to my own wedding in August and I’m SO excited!!

  • Kate May 7, 2009, 8:11 am

    What kind of cereal was it that you had for your afternoon snack yesterday? thanks!

  • Jessica May 7, 2009, 8:11 am

    Ironically it’s my anniversary today – 3 years. We’re not married, but we’re common law and I don’t really plan on getting married so I count it the same šŸ˜‰

    I have two weddings to go to this summer, although one is just a small get together at the house of my boyfriend’s dad and his to-be wife. No real ceremony.

  • Caitlin at Healthy Tipping Point May 7, 2009, 8:14 am

    Kate – Agave Plus Granola by Nature’s Path — very good!!

    Jessica – happy anni!!

  • Life Coach Jen May 7, 2009, 8:15 am

    You know how many days you’ve been married??? You sound like me, I count everything.

  • sweetandfit May 7, 2009, 8:18 am

    pb french toast looks sooo good!

    its been 124 days already?!?! omgosh – congrats =)

    i;m not invitied to any weddings this summer, not yet at least!

  • RhodeyGirl/Sabrina May 7, 2009, 8:18 am

    MORE PICTURES PLEASE!!!! šŸ™‚

    My wedding is next, and then from now to next may we have 6 weddings. Trust me, that is NOTHING compared to PB’s past summer. The summer we met he had 14 weddings! insanityyyyyyyyyyyyyy

  • happinessawaits May 7, 2009, 8:29 am

    I feel like I go through phases of weddings. This year I have 7 to go to (already been to 3)! Last year I only had 2 total. Maybe it is the big 3-0 that is pressing down on me and my friends so they are all pushing to tie the knot.

    I do love a good wedding though!

    Happiness Awaits

  • eatingRD May 7, 2009, 8:41 am

    I would love to have a road bike! They are terribly expensive, but someday. french toast sounds yummy!

  • Rebecca May 7, 2009, 8:42 am

    I have six weddings this summer! I can’t wait, because I am planning my own and can poach some ideas :).

    Breakfast looks amazing by the way.

  • Sara May 7, 2009, 8:44 am

    Oh wow, PB French Toast?? Amazing!

  • Nutritious is Delicious May 7, 2009, 8:57 am

    Great BReakfast!And your wedding is beautiful!

  • Julie May 7, 2009, 9:01 am

    I’m going to three. Two this month and one in August. I bought a dress for the May weddings at TJ maxx for $30!!! I am so proud of this you have no idea.

  • Runeatrepeat May 7, 2009, 9:01 am

    Just my own wedding in June!!!!!!!!

    Oh, and I had PB French Toast for dinner last night šŸ™‚

  • Andrea of Care to Eat May 7, 2009, 9:06 am

    You are a french toast genius!
    Have you seen 40 yr old Virgin? I can’t say French toast without thinking about that drunk girl he picks up.
    BTW – your magnet is sitting at home waiting to be mailed. I’ll get around to it one of these days. I’m horrible about getting stuff in the mail – my Mom’s Mother Day card is waiting to be mailed too. Don’t think it will make it to Texas by Sunday!

  • Rachel May 7, 2009, 9:28 am

    I’ve never thought of melting PB (or almond butter… even better, to me. yum!) into the French toast batter! What an awesome idea.

    Wedding/engagement season is busy for me this summer. At least four to attend and who knows how many more on the horizon!

  • J May 7, 2009, 9:45 am

    What a great deal on your bike? How did you find it? Im looking to get a good road bike (for cheap/a good price) but i don’t know where to look. Thanks!

  • Caitlin at Healthy Tipping Point May 7, 2009, 9:46 am

    j – i think through bike club message boards (my dad helped me buy it). i would check craigs list, bike shops, and the like

  • alli May 7, 2009, 10:38 am

    i’m getting married in october… and have 4 other weddings to go to within the 6 months around then (one is my sister’s!)!!

  • Emily May 7, 2009, 11:32 am

    thanks for the bike info. that’s a great deal you got!

    congrats on 124 days! yesterday was my 11 month wedding anniversary, which totally blows my mind. don’t have any weddings to attend this summer as of yet, but we’re thinking of heading back to vegas to celebrate the one-year anni.

    great breakfast!

  • Niki May 7, 2009, 12:32 pm

    No weddings this summer for me:( Bummer. But hoping to be planning my wedding soon!!

  • Rachel May 7, 2009, 5:54 pm
