As much as I love cycling "vehicularly" to work, if my wife were making french toast, I might have to skip the ride, (she's usually sound asleep when I head out the door).

Twice as wicked Wicked Sinful french toast takes the cake for me!

If you ahve never had it. Come down to framingham and go to J&M diner by the stop and shop. Oh man is taht place good.

Put it this way...

Its a danish that is flattened or cut in half (forgot whcih) and then dipped in their cinammon sugar and egg batter and then fried on the grill to perfection. It is literally heaven on a plate...

Hmm I may be going saturday. (YES!)

French Toast beats VC hands down anytime and any day of the week. Now French Toast vs. Girl Scout cookies is another matter...

Sounds good hi565, but Framingham is too far to drive for breakfast. I'd just as soon stay home and make Cafe Du Monde beignets. Mmmm...

No its not. Seriously.



(Well for me personally, if there was a place that was on the other side of mass or even NH that was really really good I would do it...)

How is this not a poll?

We won't have any way of quantifying exactly how much better french toast is than VC.

For extra points post this in A&S.

I reserve comment until I hear what HH has to say. French Toast is too important to judge without hearing from the experts.

All I'm saying is that if you have taken a certified French Toast level II class, and you practice French Toast at all times, you are at least 392,122 x safer than the average eater. Only by using your proper plate position can you assert your right to the breakfast.

the good thing about french toast is that you don't have to wear your helmet or attach blinking lights while you eat.

I've heard tell that French Toast advocates are dead set against pancakes!

I think we should commission MERTON to come up with a drawing representing the tug-of-war between french toast and vehicular driving

What do you say, MERTON??
