|You won't believe how easy it is to make this fancy breakfast piece!|
First, make french toast.
Most of you know how to do that already but for the beginners:
Beat 2 eggs with a dash of cinnamon until it looks like the picture above.
|ok, so here's what your french toast should look like. I made four slices.|
Mike forgot to stop and get cream cheese so I had to send him out for it while I was making the toast...
|...and he came back with these! and cream cheese.|
|So now we just need to make the filling.|
Wash your blueberries!
Warm up the cream cheese (half a block/4oz) in the microwave. 30 seconds was perfect for mine.
|Stir in about 1/4cp confectioner's sugar (more or less depending how sweet you want it) and cinnamon to taste.|
|Put a bunch of berries on one slice of french toast.|
|Then spread the cream cheese mixture on the other slice and put them together. mmmmm!|
|oh! I almost forgot, I sprinkled more of the sugar on top|
|We took our dads to a car show on the lake for Father's Day where we saw this contraption!|
|It's a Ranger pickup with among other things, a fish tank in the trunk!! |
There are real freakin fish in there!!!!
|and a dragonfly landed on my arm and hung out there while I walked! Good luck for me, I hope!|

|On our trip to historic Williamsburg, we stumbled on a car show! Dad was happy for sure!|
|This Packard was my personal Favorite of all the cars there (and there were lots).|
|and right next to my favorite was this beauty.|
|Shiny, red Ferrari!|
|This lady was playing a teeny tiny violin in the colonial area.|
It was a lively tune she played!
|Stunning view of the pond behind the Governor's Palace.|
|No colonial experience would be complete without the stocks. Somebody's been naughty!|
|Even the drive was an adventure when we passed Dale Jr.! Haha, come on pokey, keep up!|
