Just Peachy

It's peach season down here in SC--and plenty of roadside stands to buy them. We bought a basket of them and the smell in the car was so intoxicating! Nothing like fresh grown produce. I made my uncle's recipe of French Toast with them. Thought I would share the recipe and a picture.
Okay, this is really bizarre. When I inserted my picture, it shows up as HTML code. It converts to pictures when I preview it, but then goes back to HTML. So now I can't move the pictures around like I like. Does anyone know what I have done wrong?
So, since I can't move the pictures where I like, obviously one of them is food! I'll get back to that. And the other is a little wallhanging that I made when I first got my house down here to remember Charleston. I love their Rainbow Row houses.
the other picture is Peachy French Toast and it is SOOO yummy. Here's the recipe...

1 loaf unsliced Italian bread,sliced into 1" thick pieces
3 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup milk
2 T. sugar
1 T. Peach Schnapps OR 1 T. vanilla
1 1/2 to 2 cups crushed Corn Flakes
Fresh peaches, peeled and cut up and then semi-smashed to release juices (I also add a little bit of sugar to make it juicier.)

Mix the eggs, milk, sugar and flavoring. Dip the sliced bread into the egg mixture, coating both sides. Then roll in the crushed Corn Flakes. Place on a greased baking sheet. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 15 minutes, turn bread over and bake another 8-10 minutes. Serve with crushed peaches on top. MMMMMMMM!

Looks delicious - I've written this down to try.

Have a good weekend -

When you go to write a post there are two tabs - labeled edit and compose I think. The first one is where you're seeing the html code. The other you'll see the picture. You probably just clicked over a tab and didn't realize it.

Oh and the french toast sounds delicious. I'll have to try that since I'm going to the produce stand after work and peaches are already on my list.

I like your wallhanging-makes me want to see Charleston. And that recipe is just perfect for the next time I have overnight guests--mmmmmm, looking forward to trying it.

Loved Charleston and Rainbow Row, great quilt! I lived in Atlanta for a few years (really a Yank from Maryland) and you are making me hungry!! I used to love blackberry and peach cobbler...mmmm...barbeque...mmmm...chicken and dumplings... Okay, living in Ireland I don't get these foods, too cool in summers for nice peaches. I do make a nice blackberry cobbler in September though...freshe from the wild hedges here!

Great wallhanging and the peach dish looks great a well!

I love fresh peaches, I'll have to look for some in the stores. :)

Tazzie said...

Ohhh, that sounds good, I'll have to wait until it's peach season here to try it, but I think it'll be worth waiting for!

stop!! You are making me hungry but hey, Chilton County (AL) peaches are on sale at the grocery store. Will have to try your recipe though I don't have any schnapps.

Hi Karen, it wasn't just you...blogger was doing that with my pictures yesterday also. Very frustration. I finally went over and posted them through Picasa's Hello program. You can't do more than one pic per post(or at least I haven't figured out how). Blogger seems to be playing nicely today.

The french toast sounds worth buying corn flakes for! (We are Raisin Braners) Ya know corn flakes are pretty good on chicken too....
