Day #8 - Meaty French Toast

They really should just call The Monte Cristo a meaty french toast delight. It's so damn amazing that they even have to preface it with "THE". Seriously, make this sandwich. Tonight.

And if you serve it with some baked bbq lays, there is a slight chance of death by ultimate pleasure. So be prepared for the best thing your mouth has ever salivated over.

.........I must really be hungry....

Highlight of my day = listening to my boss get in a screaming match over a Facebook comment his friend left him.

Hardest part of my day = listening to my therapist tell me to put the anti-anxiety pills away, and learn a different lifestyle. .....Boring.
