Breakfast for Dinner!

Hey!  I thought my first food post on the blog should be breakfast related - so voila - breakfast for dinner!  I'm lucky that my boyfriend shares my love of breakfast food and did not think it was weird to eat this on a Friday night!  

The Menu

  • Stuffed French Toast
  • Chicken Apple Maple Sausages
  • Fruit Salad with Honey-Orange Dressing 

Stuffed French Toast 
I was inspired by Tina from Carrots'n'Cake and decided to try her Almond Butter French Toast using my favorite Justin's Maple Almond Butter!  I love Justin's nut butters even if they are almost $10 a jar - please someone let me know if you find them for less!  In addition to the maple almond butter variety, I also tried one with Justin's Chocolate Hazelnut Butter - SOOOO  rich and delicious! :)

Because I love variety, I also experimented and put light cream cheese between two slices of Ezekiel CinnaRaisin Bread - It was equally delicious and was a nice balance to the toast with the nut butters.  

Chicken Apple Maple Sausage - from Trader Joe's 

Fruit Salad with Honey-Orange Dressing 

Fruit Composition :)
- Pineapple
-Honey Crisp Apple - my first and my new fav apple
- Banana 
- Pomegranate Seeds
- Walnuts

I wanted to make a fruit salad dressing recipe from Paula Deen that I have made many times before - but it uses canola oil in the dressing - which isn't Weight Watchers friendly - so I made my own lower points value dressing - 

I squeezed one half of an orange over the salad, drizzled it with honey, and sprinkled some poppy seeds on top!  Simple, delicious, and gave the salad an extra special feeling!


The meal was accompanied with an Americano made by my lovely boyfriend in his Bialetti espresso maker.  Of course it is in my ZABAR's mug!

I will leave you with some pictures taken today on my walk in Central Park :)
