What’s better than getting together with a long-time friend and catching up?

Have you noticed that you can be so in the moment that time totally stands still?

Serving Baked French Toast with Blueberries for Brunch at AnExtraordinaryDay.net


That’s the way brunch was with my good friend when I visited her.

We’ve been neighbors…bicycling partners…walking partners…decorating partners…and she even reminded me of our brief stint as catering partners.  We even dreamed of  being partners in a B&B.

On this particular morning, after spending so many years and miles and miles apart, time seemed to stand still while we enjoyed this delicious brunch she prepared.  Oh my, it was so good!!

I meant to take a photo of the dish when it came out of the oven.  But, in all our chatting I somehow forgot.  At least I got a quick snapshot of my plate and our lovely dining spot.

If you have never made Baked French Toast with Blueberries for your family and friends….make it this weekend.  They will love you for it.

    Thank you so much lovely lady for your comments, you are one generous lady!
    I love this recipe and I’m gonna pin it. My G’girls would love it!
    Have a great rest of the week.

    • Diane says

      They are so deserved! 🙂
      Oh Fabby yourG’girls really will love it!
      Thanks so much for your lovely remarks and for stopping by!!

  2. Fabby says

    Oh…the color of my dining room is an off-white. As of right now I’m at my DD’s house, we came to visit her for her birthday; but as soon as I’m home I’ll check the can I have with a little bit and give you the info your friend needs..

  3. I’m not a big french toast fan (the egg-y taste is a total turn off for me) but I do LOVE brunch and every once in awhile I’ll make french toast for my family instead of waffles. Cause I’m nice like that 😛 I think for our next brunch or breakfast for dinner adventure I’ll be using this recipe! Yum!

    • Diane says

      I know your fans, er, family will truly enjoy it. 🙂
      Thanks for popping by Meaghan!
      Best wishes for an extraordinary end to your week!

  4. Glad the turkeys left some french toast for you! Looks scrumptious!

    • Diane says

      Haha!! You put the biggest smile on my face. Thank you!!

  5. We love french toast and I thing this would be so much easier than cooking a couple pieces of bread at the time, especially since I cook for SIX! Thanks Diane:)

    • Diane says

      I hear you Adrian!! The same amount of prep without having to stand over the stove or griddle.
      Hope your clan loves it!! Blessings!

  6. Jann Olson says

    Diane, this looks simply delicious! I have a yummy caramel pecan baked French toast that we love, but it’s nice to try something different for a change. Pinned and will be making it. Glad you had such a wonderful time with your dear friend. I have friends like that so I could totally relate. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

    • Diane says

      Awww…thanks Jann!
      Hmmm…maybe you’ll need to share your recipe. We can never have too many breakfast casserole recipes, can we?
      I am so blessed to have the friendship of my dear sister in Christ.

  7. Now, I want to have a brunch just to make this! Thanks for sharing with the Thursday Blog hop!!

    • Diane says

      Haha!! Food is always a good reason to invite friends over. Have a great time and thanks for popping by Pam!!
