French Toast for Australian Father's Day

It's Father's Day here in Australia. So I thought I'd give French Toast a go. As usual I used a recipe from my mecca for online recipes. I left out the bacon and tomatoes. I also found that the egg/milk mixture yielded more than enough for 8 slices of thick bread. If I hadn't gotten slightly lazy I could have made 10 slices but hey, it's Sunday morning!
My father hits 65 soon and a friend remarked that perhaps he should be eating something healthier for breakfast on Father's Day. No way! I get my super sweet tooth from this man, he'll be eating voraciously for a very long time. His usual breakfast consists of a cereal of some sort, toast with his home-made plum jam, two cups of tea and a slice of whatever home-made cake my mother has in the pantry slathered with his home-made apricot jam and cream. For what it's worth dad is extremely active. You know it's either bitterly cold outside or outrageously hot if you find my father sitting down inside.

OMG - this looks amazing! Hey, at his age, I'd be kicking up my heels rather than going for the carrot sticks and celery, and this looks like a delicious treat for Fathers Day - lucky guy.!

Nice! I made myself a cake in preparation of my first Father's Day next year.
