Holly's Notes:
What is it about French Toast?  I mean, it originated as a way to use day old bread and now it's practically gourmet.  We don't reserve French Toast for just breakfast, we love it for dinner too. My personal preference is for thick Texas Toast with syrup and sausage!

I also cook the entire loaf of bread.  If it doesn't get eaten, it's great to freeze and then just pop in the toaster later.

The vanilla and cinnamon add just an extra decadence to a simple dish.
