Taking Requests

November 27, 2010

There’s nothing I like more than someone saying: “When I come to your house, I want to eat THAT.” After reading this post, Larbs requested grilled banana french toast.


We used Great Harvest Fayetteville’s Ezekiel bread (which Karen brought last week)


And a bunch of ripe bananas


Clean dishes in this house are running low. Luckily I remembered my stack of colored plates in the bowl cabinet!


Toppings bar


Almost too many choices!


I went with a thin piece of toast topped with grilled bananas (which were so ripe they didn’t grill as well as usual), a blob of cinnamoned pumpkin, Ambrosial granola and TJs sunflower butter.






And for “dessert”, I polished off the leftover pumpkin : )


I think they liked it!


Mom + Dad are departing later this morning while Larbs, Matt, Matt and I go for a run across the UVA grounds and then to show Matt around Cville.

That looks like dessert for breakfast. Yum. Now I’m craving sunbutter.


2 Claire (Low Impact Fashionista) November 27, 2010 at 9:20 am

That topping bar would be seriously dangerous for me, I need to try one of these sandwiches!


3 Tina @ Faith Fitness Fun November 27, 2010 at 9:20 am

I love the toppings bar. I know I would have trouble choosing what to add. Hope you have a great day!


4 Estela @ Weekly Bite November 27, 2010 at 9:29 am

Now that is some serious french toast! Looks delicious!


5 Gabriela @ Une Vie Saine November 27, 2010 at 9:30 am

It’s always flattering when friends want me to make them “blog food” as well. I’m not surprised Larbs wanted the French toast though- it looks amazing!


6 Meg November 27, 2010 at 9:30 am

I feel like I’d go nuts with the decision process of what to have for breakfast at the KERF ranch 😉


7 Jessica @ How Sweet It Is November 27, 2010 at 9:30 am

I wish you could make me breakfast this morning.


8 Lauren at KeepItSweet November 27, 2010 at 9:30 am

Do you sweeten the pumpkin at all or just mix it with cinnamon?


9 Kath November 27, 2010 at 10:19 am

Sorry, Keep It Sweet, no sugar involved :)


10 Simply Life November 27, 2010 at 9:47 am

oooh great breakfast – I’ve never had that before!


11 Caitlyn (A Spoonful of Life) November 27, 2010 at 9:52 am

I would have requested the same breakfast!


12 Balanced Healthy Life November 27, 2010 at 9:59 am

Great looking breakfast, have fun on your run! : )


13 Amy at TheSceneFromMe November 27, 2010 at 10:04 am

I love your collection of colorful plates!


14 Kristy@ KristyRuns.com November 27, 2010 at 10:04 am

Wow. Looks amazing! Can you please make me breakfast? 😉


15 Camille November 27, 2010 at 10:08 am

Breakfast company is the best :) It always reminds me of the holidays!


16 Grocery Goddess Jen November 27, 2010 at 10:08 am

I love your colored plates. I really want to buy more fun dishware!


17 Jil @ Big City, Lil Kitchen November 27, 2010 at 10:17 am

I love that, too! It makes life easier to get requests!! :)


18 Eliza November 27, 2010 at 10:39 am

that looks To die for, love the toppings!!


19 Jess. November 27, 2010 at 10:45 am

I know you recently mentioned a pandora christmas station that you loved but i can’t seem to find what it was. Would you please let us know again?:)

Need to try that breakfast! Just got some of that pumpkin butter from my grandma on thanksgiving, but haven’t tried it yet…


20 Kath November 27, 2010 at 10:47 am

Peaceful Holidays and Swingin’ Christmas


21 Natalia - a side of simple November 27, 2010 at 11:05 am

I really do think you should open up a KERF breakfast bar next to your Great Harvest :) I know I would make a road trip just for that!


22 Maddie (Healthy Maddie) November 27, 2010 at 11:09 am

I want your topping bar! There are so many choices.


23 Georgie @ Georgie Goes Healthy November 27, 2010 at 11:11 am

All I can say to that is… YUM.


24 Olena November 27, 2010 at 11:31 am
25 Christine (The Raw Project) November 27, 2010 at 11:37 am

Wow, very yum! I’ve never tried TJ’s sunflower seed butter, but need to!


26 betty @ runbettyrun November 27, 2010 at 11:59 am

I love that both your husband and your sister’s boyfriend are named Matt!

My sister and my husbands both share the same name (Albert) too! It makes for a confusing family dinner – when someone calls out their name, and they both turn around!

How do you guys keep the two Matt’s straight?!


27 Kath November 27, 2010 at 12:14 pm

My Matt is known as Kanz within the family, so that makes things a lot easier!


28 Heather (Heather's Dish) November 27, 2010 at 12:25 pm

yes, if i came to your house i would want that too! you make the most incredible breakfasts!


29 Hillary [Nutrition Nut on the Run] November 27, 2010 at 12:33 pm

Love the stack of colorful plates =]


30 Mary @ Bites and Bliss November 27, 2010 at 12:46 pm

That’s one loaded French toast! yum!


31 Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin November 27, 2010 at 12:55 pm

If I were ever to dine chez KERF, I would probably request that too! 😉


32 Cathy B. @ Bright Bakes November 27, 2010 at 12:56 pm

I really really really need to try that grilled-bananas-on-french-toast thing…like soon! Yours always looks so amazing…love all the toppings, too!

33 Lauren November 27, 2010 at 1:22 pm

I often get requests for my breakfasts and it makes me so happy. I love this deconstructed version of french toast.
Enjoy the day!


34 Paige @Running Around Normal November 27, 2010 at 1:46 pm

Nice!! Toppings ga-lore!!


35 Diana November 27, 2010 at 1:54 pm

I love a big stack of mis match colorful plates, so cute.


38 J3nn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) November 27, 2010 at 6:12 pm

I don’t know about pumpkin on the French toast, especially unsweetened. It looks good, though!


39 Heather Eats Almond Butter November 27, 2010 at 6:30 pm

I am going to show up at your house with a bowl of ice-cream. Please have toppings bar ready. Thank you. 😉


40 Kath November 27, 2010 at 7:05 pm

44 Heidi - apples under my bed November 27, 2010 at 8:38 pm

I love it when my friends/family request my food :) this looks beautiful, no wonder they polished off their (very pretty) plates!
Heidi xo


45 Hannah November 27, 2010 at 8:52 pm
