Gluttony on a Sunday, is that a sin? If it is, I'm guilty. This morning, I made stuffed french toast with fresh peaches and mascarpone cheese. I started with two thick slices of whole grain artisanal bread. I coated the bread in a mixture of egg, half and half, vanilla, and cinnamon. Then I tossed the peaches in a pan with some butter and balsamic to give them a decadent glaze. After toasting the bread to a golden brown, I spread on the mascarpone cheese and poured the gooey peaches over the top. Organic maple syrup topped the whole thing off and it was so good I wanted to lick the plate. It was a religious experience. It is Sunday, after all.
