Another Successful Instance of Making Small Changes

Tonight we planned to have french toast with bacon and fruit for dinner.  Since my waffle variation last week was such a success I thought this would be another easy meal to tweak.  When we went grocery shopping there were some really beautiful strawberries.  I decided to make stuffed french toast using the strawberries.  I used about 2 oz of cream cheese, 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar and two spoon fulls of chopped up strawberries for the filling.  I used a hand mixer and blended it all together.  It reminded me of strawberry cream cheese that you would buy in the store.  Then I used more chopped up strawberries and some honey to make a strawberry sauce by simmering it on the stove.  I'm really liking the fruit sauces lately, can you tell?  

I made the french toast as normal, I did slice the bread and leave it sitting out for about an hour to dry out a bit.  Then I dipped it in the egg/milk mixture and cooked it.  Once the french toast was cooked I spread the filling on one piece and placed the other on top and then topped with the strawberry sauce.  This time I did snap pictures.

It was delicious!  I am loving making these small changes that make our meals seem brand new.  Granted I have only done it with breakfast type meals but I figure I would start there since they are generally easy meals and I try to have breakfast for dinner once a week.
