Well sorry I did not take a picture of it but believe my it is mouth watering.
Stuffed French Toast
6oz cream cheese, at room tempperature
3 T sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
8 slices of high quality sandwich bread (I used Texas toast- bread)
1 large egg
1 cup cold water
1/2 cup flour
1tsp vanilla
4T unsalted butter
Maple syrup or your favorite kind\

1. Combine the cream cheese, sugar, & cinnamon in a medium bowl. Spread mixture on 4 slices of bread (I think I made 10 total out of this) top with remaining bread slices pressing gently to form sandwiches.
2. Combine egg, water, flour, & vanilla in a shallow pie plate. Melt 2 T butter on the skillet over medium heat. Dip both sides in the egg mixture & place on skillet. Cook until golden on both sides.
3. Cut the french toast into triangles and serve immediately.

Serve bacon on the side. Yum and they are yummy when reheated the next day!

So as you might or might not know Steve is now up to running 5 miles. Ya for him. He has also lost 60 lbs. So he has challenged me to run the 5K with him in April. I have never ran, I am pretty sure I don't like to do it. I have been resisting this challenge for a while now. Well last night he told me that when I run a mile he will buy me a new pair of shoes. Well I guess he did not think I could do it, honestly I did not either. So this morning I went to the gym and I did it. It took me 14:02, but I did it. So now my goal is to obviously shorten my time & continue to get back in shape.
Thanks honey for all the motivation and inspiration you have been for me. Love you.

Why does time run away from me.....
