French toast, a blogger meetup, and Sasha time

This past weekend was one of the first weekends in quite some time that we spent in our own city. For most of September, we were out and about. It was nice to finally “relax” here. As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker program, I received Bauducco Panettone to sample. We decided to make French toast with it on Saturday.

The Panettone was extra absorbent. The recipe for French toast using Panettone instructed us to soak the cake in egg for over fifteen minutes… It really only needed a little bit of time.

Our second batch was much better than the first, which was just plain soggy. In terms of flavor, however, it was a bit sweet for my taste.

The rest of the day was gorgeous, perfect for a blogger meetup. Courtney coordinated the meet-up, and attendees included Teresa, Audrey, Naomi, Courtney, Cate, Alyssa, and Jana. I was late and missed Annelies who was there a bit earlier. After chatting over food and drinks at Sports Basement, we went outside to catch the Blue Angels. Good times.

Time at home also means time with Sasha. Here are a few photos of her over the weekend:

Sasha as a parrot

We like to call this her parrot pose. She loves jumping up to the front seat, but we keep her back while driving. As long as her paws are off the center console, she gets away with putting her head on Ryan’s shoulder since it doesn’t get in his way.

How was your weekend?
