S’mores French Toast Is My New Best Friend

Obviously, I am not a food photographer. No foodie in their right mind would photograph such a decadent dish in a to-go box. And when I say “decadent” I am not messing around. This S’mores French Toast is AMAZING. Granted, there is no way this is a healthy breakfast. I mean, look at it. It’s literally a giant s’more. I believe the marshmallow is the same size as the bread. That’s one big marshmallow. Yes, I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to mention marshmallow’s in two consecutive posts. Anyway, back to the best french toast known to man. It should be no surprise that I have a major sweet tooth. I try to fight it (no, I don’t) and occasionally I find the strength to stay away from sweet things (no, I don’t), but sometimes you just have to allow yourself to indulge. Maybe you’re on vacation (I wasn’t). Maybe you made a killing selling old clothes on Poshmark (I didn’t). Maybe you won the championship game by scoring the winning point with your amazing jump shot from the half court line (I didn’t). Whatever it is (I got out of bed before 10am), you deserve to reward yourself with a delicious meal, even if that meal consists of a melting marshmallow sandwiched between one inch thick pieces of bread drizzled with chocolate syrup and crushed up graham crackers. You know what they say. You only live once. Live each day as if it might be your last. So get out there and drown yourself in something delicious.

Oh, and if your mouth is watering over this S’mores French Toast and you need to have it, and you do, it’s available at Brunch in downtown Paso Robles. And while you’re at, I’ll be just a couple doors down at my shop, Viva Paso. Come say hello. And bring my your leftovers. I’m hungry.

See you soon! And happy eating.

Awesome Or Pathetic? I’m Leaning Toward Awesome.

First off, research tells us that blog posts with a photo are much more engaging than those without. So, here’s a photo of my little monster that has absolutely nothing at all to do with my topic of ordering Thai food.

Ok, the other day, Friday to be exact, was my day to sit in the studio. It’s a 12-9 shift and I almost ALWAYS order from Thai Classic at some point during my studio shift. Here’s a reenactment, to the best of my memory, of how that phone call went.

“Thai Classic.”
“Hi, I’d like to place an order for pick up?”
“What would you like?”
“Pad See-Yew with Beef. No spicy.”
“For Jeff, right?”
“And Thai iced tea?”

Aww…they know me so well. I love Thai Classic!

And you should love them too. They have two spots on the Central Coast.
1212 Park St in downtown Paso Robles
1011 Higuera St in downtown San Luis Obispo


This Hot Cocoa Is Way Better Than That Crap I’ve Been Drinking At Starbucks: An Evening At The Raven Cafe In Prescott

the hot cocoa here is way better than that crap i've been drinking at starbucks.

Coral and I just ate dinner at The Raven Cafe. We ate upstairs and outside and watched the sun go down. The grandparents have the kids and have given us the opportunity to have a date night while we’re here in Prescott. I guess the “date” part is over because we’ve moved inside, grabbed our computers from the car, ordered hot cocoa’s and I’m typing this post as Coral edits photos. We’re also sharing a blueberry mousse. Actually, I haven’t had a bite of it yet. Coral may or may not be hogging it. You be the judge. Ok, I just had a bite and Coral can have the rest of it. Anyway…

This place is awesome. Great food. Great drinks. Free wifi. If you ever find yourself in Prescott I suggest you put The Raven Cafe on your “places to check out” list.

Oh, they also play great music. What music you ask? Well, they’re playing Arcade Fire right now, which means I don’t even have to put on my headphones to rock my favorite Pandora station.

See ya!
