I love Cinnamon Raisin bread. It's so darn good toasted it tastes like dessert to me no matter when I eat it.
Recently I started asking my kids at bedtime what they want for breakfast the next morning, trying to get them to pick one thing so I don't wind up being a short order cook, making something different for everyone. I find that breakfast more than any other meal is when I risk falling into this bad habit.
One morning when I had forgotten to ask about breakfast the previous night, Kenya wanted waffles and Chloe asked for French toast. It started to turn into a bit of a power struggle so I decided to rectify the situation and fulfill both of their wishes by making waffle french toast. Plus I made it even more special by doing it with my beloved cinnamon raisin bread. I also used a waffle iron so I didn't need to worry about flipping it halfway through -- giving me extra time to get organized and out the door for school on time!
