Challah back*

So sometimes the darling hubby is not interested in inviting over a gaggle of our favorite friends to entertain and feed. Not because he doesn't love them but more because he ends up doing dishes due to our lack of modern day appliances.

But I digress... I do have a secret weapon to guarantee a 'yes dear' every time and it generally involves parading possible leftover concoctions darling dearest might enjoy if said party were to take place!

Et voila! A dinner party is created and leftovers like this delicious challah french toast is created.

The beauty of most celebrations is that they include that slightly sweet, soft and chewy delight called challah. The french have their brioche, others may call it egg bread, but it is really only authentic in my eyes if it is challah! Hey, a girl can have an opinion, right?!

This leftover loaf affectionately called 'waves of goodness' by the photographer (that would be the darling husband):


....made an outstanding matinee this afternoon as brunch:


Unfortunately I forgot to photograph it once the cinnamon powdered sugar was added. We literally inhaled it tout suite! I assure you it was as delightful to look at as it was to consume.

Happy eating!

*I cannot take credit for this adorable post title. When I was working at a non-profit several years back they had a challah making workshop that was adorably labelled 'challah back' and so I credit an old friend "A" for her creative naming of the workshop and her unknown contribution to this post!

Husbands who do dishes are much better than modern appliances...

Thank you Anh! If only I had shared with you the beautiful photo of this french toast dusted with cinammon powdered sugar:)

Agreed, KatieZ. Although I would rather cuddle on the couch after a nice meal with him and let the machine do the talking. But then who would write my blog?
