Peaches and Cream French Toast

I am SO excited it’s finally September! Other than I have some post this month that im super excited to share with you guys. My fingers has been itching to hit post on so many of them. I love September its the calm before the storm of the holiday season that coming up. I’m sure were all seeing Halloween decorations already in stores by next month we’ll see Christmas stuff hanging up. Once September is over I feel like everyone hits the ground running its such a rapid succession of events till we get a break after New Years. The weather change is generally shifting at this time so its rainier days to help soon bring in the cooler weather. I am absolutely counting the days till the beginning of fall which is the end of this month. From the cooler weather, the produce change, heartier stews and meals. Im actually really tired of the light summer cooking. Give me some cold weather and some clam chowder! But to kick off the start of a great month lets start off with a great breakfast. This peaches and cream French toast is warm, sweet, inviting and satisfying. The cinnamon sugar coated challah has a nice chew and crunch. The warm peaches offer the ultimate comfort for a slightly cool less humid morning. Try this out, I’m sure you’ll love it and let me know what you think!
