  1. Christ. I think that will just finish me off. 7 eggs! (going to give it a go though, with some smoked bacon). Looking forward to Sunday now.

  2. One of my favorite things about Japan was the fresh salmon every morning. Very few people in KY understand it as a breakfast food. I am so glad to find someone who enjoys it as well. Your French toast looks divine!
