Grandmother's Morning Treat

I knew I wanted to make my mom breakfast for mothers day, I was just a little unsure of what to make, last year my breakfast wasn't all that impressive. I was talking to her at our mother daughter day yesterday and she was telling me about her new cookbook, and she had fun a really yummy overnight french toast. I decided to give it a try.

This recipe was really simple to throw together right before bed. And just a few steps in the morning. This recipe turned out ok, it was edible but not a favorite of anyone, you needed some syrup blueberry was the favorite. The easiest way to explain it is a large cream cheese danish.

Happy Mothers Day to My Mom, and all you other moms out there. This is My Mom, My baby brother (he is turning 18 next week... I can't believe it) and myself.
