My home network is FINALLY back online. All in all, it wasn’t down for much longer than a week. But considering how things are all tied together now, one week is a VERY long time to be without a land line, television, and internet. The withdrawal shakes started after only two days. By day seven I would have sold my soul for one episode of Jon Stewart.
But in my information starved state, at least I didn’t starve. As a matter of fact, I somehow had much more time than I normally do, and put it to good use whipping up this week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe, Coupetade, a.k.a. French Toast Bread Pudding.
So it’s like this: first you make some french toast, and then you make it into bread pudding. Sounds like a tasty brunch idea actually. Instead of maple syrup, I topped mine with cream and strawberries, because the berries are so gorgeous right now and I can’t seem to go more than a day without gorging on them.
My husband loved it. I was not as big a fan. Not sure why as I usually love bread pudding. But now that I have my internet back, I just can’t be bothered to spend too much time wondering why. After all, Jon Stewart is waiting.
