Have you ever tried Ina Garten's challah french toast?  So good.  So easy.
Happy, happy, happy Saturday.

Thanks for the recipe! I went to the website and e-mailed it to myself so I won't forget it! My daughter and her friend (who spent the night) said they were going to get up early and make breakfast for all of us. At 8:56 a.m. we're still waiting!!

Stop it already... :-)
The 5 minutes I spent outside this morning (cleaning the pool filter, maintenance drudgery, ugh) I was attacked by mosquitos (the Minnesota state bird) and horse flies (you know, the biting kind)... sigh, no beautiful outdoor breakfasts here. I really need to clean out and decorate the 3 season porch, oh, and get some cute tablecloths!

I'll get right on that...

Happy knitting-
ali

I think you should write a small "Summer Saturday Morning" cook book. Then you could eventually branch out to one for every season! Or year round! Everything you make on these days looks so yummy!

Hege said...

Oh, those blueberries looks so good.
They are not ripe here yet...
And the ball of yarn on the table has some beautiful colr - what are you making??

MadMad said...

Oh, I love the Contessa! Are her new recipes up yet? Off to check!

kim said...

Do you send your husband into town on fake errands while you whip up breakfast too? ;) That looks fabulous!

Knitting Diva said...

YUM YUM !! I check out the recipe and will be serving mine very soon.

I always look forward to your every post, you do such an excellent job!

peaknits said...

Yum! Thank you for sharing the Ina Garten link, I just love her - at risk of sounding a little odd, there is something very sensual about the Barefoot Contessa to me, I can't look away for a minute when I am watching;)

Denise said...

That sounds like a scrumtious recipe. Your Saturday mornings always look so lovely and relaxing :-)

leslie said...

Annie said...

Love Ina's recipes. So simple and yet so tasty.
I'm with Ali on "no breakfast outside" unless you want to share it with mosquitoes :(
I just love your blog; so calm, peaceful, and simplistic...oh... and delicious. Enjoy your weekend.

Looks delicious! What a wonderful tradition you have.

Louise said...

I have made a promise to myself to get our outside area looking nicer so we can enjoy these al fresco meals as the weather warms up. It always looks so inviting at yours!!

I've been enjoying Challah French Toast since I was a kid . . . i grew up in a very Jewish area, and it was the best thing after Shabbat Dinner on Friday to have the Challah French Toast on Saturday.

I'm really enjoying your Saturday posts and I love that you dress the outdoor table. I barely have the energy to mine indoors.

Meggie said...

The french toast looks good, but the berries and peaches look even better.

KeanaLee said...

So yummy! Love the recipe, I have that cookbook too!

I have loved your site ever since discovering the Silver Belle sweater :) Love your photos and yummy recipes too! Keep enjoying that summer weather! Our blueberries are now ripening on our bushes in the backyard-about two weeks later than usual for Seattle. Summer is short here-have to enjoy it while we can!

Jess said...

You have the best Saturdays ever. I think you should make yourself a coffee table book about each summertime Saturday!

Sandy said...

Leslie, your saturdays are awesome!

Knitterella said...
