I’m a big fat cheater.
So this might seem very similar to my caramel apple french toast.
And well it pretty much is the same thing.
I have been completely obsessing over that french toast and have been experimenting with french toast ever since.
And since I ran out of apples, I figured why not use bananas!?
Makes perfect sense, right?
And it turned out pretty awesome 🙂
Only problem is that we’ve been having french toast everyday for the last week or so, and my love handles are starting to suffer.
And my scale is about to break.
And I pretty much have a heart attack every time I look at the said scale.
Like the number keeps going up and up,
and I keep wondering why?
Well between eating dozens of cupcakes, drinking a little more than usual, indulging in all things cheesy, and eating more french toast then it should be legal, I should just be happy that my jeans fit at all…
And Chris is not immune to it either.
He stepped on the scale today and was like “What the heck?” so starting tomorrow we’ll both go on a diet….
Let’s see how long that one lasts…sigh…
Tonight we indulged for the last time in some ahhmazing food! We went to our favorite tapas place which never disappoints 🙂 Always absolutely deelish and I can’t believe I haven’t blogged about it yet…Especially since I go there at least once a week…
But for now, just eat some french toast 🙂
By the way, I am totally obsessed with One More Night by Maroon 5.
Even though I hear it a thousand times a day, I can’t get enough of it! And I just found out that Maroon 5 will be here in March! OMG I have to be there! I know what I want for Christmas this year 😉
Comments: Soo good! Gooey yumminess 🙂 If you love banana foster you’ll love these!
Negatives: Quite a few dishes afterwards but worth it!
Will I make these again? Probably
