With the announcement of the CLICK: the photo event for EGGS, though i dont consume eggs directly(except in cakes ) i wanted to participate in the event. But i had to cook something people can eat, and then found my victim for the EGG recipe, my poor HUBBY! He wasnt sure if he can eat it at first when i said i was about to make french toast with peaches. But after a quick glance at this wonderful feast he couldnt say NO!!

No way in competition with the excellent photographers over there, just wanted to participate!! Though i am not at all good taking pictures, i tried my best( and added to to that i took these at night! ). Since i am new to this bloggging and events, not sure if i can atleast qualify for the event. I have some pictures here, please help me choose the right and best picture for the CLICK event.

Hey pori..! Aati kya Khandala? ( Hey Baby, wanna come with me? )

Actually when Namrata commented this reminds her of HUMTUM, I named these Hum(Me) and Tum(You). Thanks Namrata. I painted cute kids faces named HUM boy and TUM girl. I wanted to portray some conversation. HUM the naughty boy asks TUM the shy girl "Ay kya bolti tu, Aati Kya Khandala?"( Its a popular movie song in a hindi movie GHULAM ). Translation: "Hey girl, you wanna come to Khandala (remote island)?". In the second picture, the girl was shocked and says angrily "How dare you?". Yes HUM is really bold indeed! He is a TAPORI.

How dare you?

Here goes some info why i chose this one --- A Healthy Breakfast fuels your body for peak performance. This super meal can even help ustrim excess weight and cut risk of chronic disease. We should balance our breakfast with protein to stabilize blood sugar and include whole grain carbs, fruit and low fat calcium source. Dish up a bowl of whole grain cereal, top it with low fat milk and berries, and youve got a true breakfast for champions!

I wanted to put together all of them in a kid friendly and appetizing breakfast. Thus i came up with my Peachy French Toast. Eggs provide 13 essential nutrients including highest quality protein. Using whole grain bread in this recipe add nutritional bonus - FIBER( has health promotiong phyto nutrients ). And never forget peaches they are wonderful source Vitamin C, Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Niacin and Potassium( Click here for more info ). Never actually cooked with peaches, since they are high in this season. I want to use the fresh peaches in my dish, hence came up with my PEACHY PEACHY FRENCH TOAST! The end product was absolutely delicious!! I got the recipe for plain french toast from Publix Green Wise magazine.

Ready to dig in?

You need:
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 cup 2% or fat free milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp orange zest
  • 1/8 ground cinnamon
  • 8 1/2 inch thick 7 multi grain whole wheat bread
  • 2 peaches
  • 1/4 cup brown or regular sugar
  • a dash of nutmeg

Oooo, its hot here!

How to:
  • In a deep plate whisk eggs, cinnamon, milk, vanilla, orange zest and cinnamon
  • Heat griddle or pan on medium
  • Soak bread slices into the mixture. Let it soak on one side and flip it other side
  • Spray the pan with non stick spray or little bit butter
  • Allow excess mixture to drip back to plate and place on the griddle.
  • Cook on both sides( if you are all making at once, cook these french toasts and put them in heated oven until actually served)
  • Before serving add the glazed peaches( procedure below ) on top and decorate with mint!
  • VOILA your hot and refreshing PEACHY FRENCH TOAST is ready!!!

Merry Go Round...!

Glazed peaches:
  • Cut peaches into length wise and in a pan add dash of butter and add the peaches in and cook for 3 min until cooked.
  • Then add sugar and nutmeg and let the sugar melt.
  • This should coat the peaches and form glaze.

Ahhh! my peachy peachy toast!!

I am going to send this as an entry for AFAM( A fruit a month-PEACH ) event. Thanks Rina and Mansi. You can serve these glazed peaches with icecream, french toast, pancakes, rice pudding or even regular toast. My french toast was heavenly and peach never tasted this GOOD!!
