Morning!! I am so, so, so thankful for another good night’s sleep. I was up at 7am, but I’ll take that over 3,4,5 or 6 any day! I actually stayed in bed reading and relaxing for a long while before getting up to make some breakfast.

Cville Crunch French toast with seared banana, Cville Cluster Granola, chia seeds and sunflower butter. All my favorites in one!

I have purposefully cleared my calendar this week except for one major event on Tuesday, so I’m hoping to do just a little bit of work today and a lot of relaxing.

Miss Adventure Karen Monson just returned from a biking trip in Maine, so we might go see a movie this weekend together! The gloomy weather sure calls for movie time.

Hurray for sleep! You must be getting pretty excited. What movies are you looking at seeing? I heard that the new Bourne movie isn’t very good. Have a wonderful Saturday :)

Maybe Hope Springs?

I loved Hope Springs! It is a “chick flick” though. My friend and I have spent a lot of time in Maine and were just loving the scenery.

I’m actually drooling. Really must make a trip to my GH soon! Too bad it’s 50 minutes away :( silly rural living.

I’m glad you got another good night’s sleep – maybe you’re body is prepping for the baby!

Love your plate.
Enjoy the day. Maybe a baby boy will arrive on the 26th. That would be cool!

I dreamt all night that you gave birth! I thought for sure that I was right. Good luck to you anyway.
We are all sending you love and good wishes through the Internet!

I just discovered staying in bed in the morning and reading. It is a nice way to relax!

My mum said that before she went into labor with all of her 7 babies (not all at once, of course) that she fell into the deepest, most wonderful sleep for 2 hours, and then she would wake up, and know that it was time. About half the time, she woke up rested, and in labor, and then the other half, it started withing a few hours.
This, of course, never happened to me. :)

Glad to hear you scheduled relaxing at this time. You’ll need all that rest! :-)

While the breakfast photo looks delicious….I can’t help but drool over the pretty orange plate. Nice touch!

Wishing you all the best.

Your french toast always looks so good! But whenever I go to make it, I always ending going in a different direction!

Hey Kath,

I know you guys shipped my package but USPS had the package in my state then sent it to another state?! (I’m seeing all this on my tracking page) It says its supposed to be delivered today but how can that be when its in another state! Its very hot out and I don’t want the granola to go bad. I paid $12 for shipping so this is disappointing.

USPS was not very friendly :( they were just trying to get off the phone.

30 Tiffany August 25, 2012 at 1:07 pm

I just spoke to Matt…were going to wait and see what happens with the shipment.

31 KathEats August 25, 2012 at 1:19 pm

Glad you talked to him. We’ll fix the problem for you if it doesn’t come correctly!

32 Tiffany August 25, 2012 at 1:28 pm

Thank you!! :)

Reply

33 Tiffany August 25, 2012 at 5:30 pm

I just received the package even though tracking said it was in another state! haha

Thank you so much to both you and Matt for being so nice!

Hope you have a great weekend! :)

I love that plate and mug combo – super cute! :)
Can I have your whole dish collection, please?

35 Jenica August 25, 2012 at 1:40 pm

I’m still relatively new to your site…do you have a recipe for that lovely French toast somewhere?

Reply

36 KathEats August 25, 2012 at 1:49 pm

Hi Jenica, welcome!!

For French toast, I just crack and egg in a bowl with some cinnamon and vanilla and then soak a slice of hearty bread in it for about 30 seconds per side. Sear in a pan over medium-low heat until egg is nicely cooked!

I have to say, I think sunflower seed butter is better than peanut butter :)
