6 Months

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
Martin Luther King, Jr.

I hope your Martin Luther King, Jr. Day was very meaningful. I started off with a fantastic spinning class at the Y and did about 15 miles of hills, running, and all that feel good spinning stuff. It was nice to sleep in a bit and catch the 9am class, rather than 6:30am (that comes on Wednesdays).
Thennnn, I made Grilled Banana Challah French Toast, inspired by Caitlin’s awesome recipe. Soooo good, and not super unhealthy!



Recipe: Grilled Banana Challah French Toast
Serves 1


  • 1 large slice of Challah (egg) bread, broken into two
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tsp. brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 medium sized banana, sliced hot dog (long) way


  • Grease and heat griddle.
  • Make basic French toast by dredging challah in eggs and placing on griddle.
  • Sprinkle brown sugar on one side of each slice of bread.
  • Meanwhile, place the banana flat side down on griddle to cook, about 3 minutes. Flip to cook 3 minutes more.
  • When first side of toast is done cooking, flip the brown sugar side down and sprinkle cinnamon.
  • Once toast has finished cooking, remove from heat and put bananas in between slices (on the cinnamon side).
  • Gobble up the deliciousness!

This was out-of-this-world yummy, and a true breakfast/brunch treat. I had it alongside some homemade hashbrowns and leftover eggs. Washed down with almond milk, YUM!

I also enjoyed another book club, where we discussed The History of Love: A Novel. And to cap off the night, I actually got the Hubs to eat TOFU! He didn’t like it much, but at least he tried! This is progress my friends….

P.S. Today marks 6 months that Hubs and I have been living in Pittsburgh. A lot of great things have happened so far- job, meeting new people, getting acquainted with this great city…we’re looking forward to what the next 6 months (and beyond) will bring!
