A friend of mine emailed me the photo in this blog entry, where these ladies gleefully celebrate the French Toast Alert. Thing is, they forgot their eggs. So their French Toast will not be as tasty as it should.

Still, I enjoyed the spirit of the photo and felt that Adam et al would also enjoy.

Waiting to take on the winner: We Are Not Martha with vanilla and chocolate-chunk-cookie cupcakes.
