i stumbled upon this “frenchie” toast recipe while trying to use up a carton of buttermilk one morning.  the hubs l.o.v.e.d it so much that i got lot’s of kisses in the kitchen.  since then i’ve made them a few times with strawberry topping and whipped cream.  the recipes are included below.  if you give them a try, let us know what you think!

now for the menu this week.
