Thrifty/Tablescape Thursday and Foodie Friday

Welcome to our cabin at the lake for late Saturday morning breakfast. I have a tradition at the lake. I get up late, make my pot of coffee, and grab a magazine. I sit and enjoy my first cup of coffee in the peace and quiet, and on a really good day, I can be on the deck to do so. Now days it's too hot to do that, so I sit in the air conditioning instead!
This Saturday, we're having home made sausage patties,
and french toast. So, out come the eggs, and since we're at the lake,
we're using regular bread for the french toast.
Cover it with eggs, throw it in the skillet that the sausage was cooked in, and sprinkle it with cinnamon.
Doesn't take long, and I'm still on my second cup of coffee! I got the cow mug at Pier I when I was there last winter. I couldn't pass up a bigger cup than any of the others that I have.
We're using the OLD stuff today, the silverware from my hope chest, from Duz soap, circa 1960's, and the Corelle that we found.
DH like syrup on his french toast, but not me - not today. I have a friend at work who made HOMEMADE peach jam this week, and I want that on mine!
It is the most beautiful shade of peach! Ha! Yes, she took an innocent bowl of peaches like this and made them even better!
So, here it is, ready for me to enjoy, pull up a chair and have some with us, won't you?
mmmmm- good! Please search and find the posts for Thrifty Thursday, Tablescape Thursday, and Foodie Friday at the below blogs:

  11. Oh,
    I am so glad I stopped and everything was delicious! You know that peaches are my favorite and I do hope there is peach-pie in heaven. How wonderful to take time to smell the coffee. I do wish the lives of our children were not so hectic so they too would enjoy the most simple of pleasures, everything home made for Saturday morning late breakfast!!! Enjoy those precious grand-kids as summer is fleeting! All Happy Days. Meg
