hospitality 05 / overnight french toast

I'll admit, I have been struggling with the news from Friday. With grief came a recipe change, a dirty martini did not seem appropriate (look for it later this week). This recipe has many wonderful memories attached to it for me. My mom started making this when I was young every time we had house guests. It was always a warm morning, with little stress to bring together an amazing meal. I wanted to offer you a recipe that gives you time with your loved ones. Prep time, 12mins. Bake time a day later 12-15mins. This is a wonderful Christmas morning recipe... you won't be disappointed.

We have been grieving and praying for the families from afar, but also that the busyness of this season does not overshadow the sweet time that we do have with our loved friends and loved families.
