Can you believe that September is halfway over already? My son has been doing great in his new school and been reading up a storm. They have an incentive program for reading. It’s read so many books, and you get to go on the field trips. Don’t read and no field trip for you. So he’s had his head in a book almost everyday. It’s fantastic!

My daughter just turned 3 months old. She’s trying her best to sit up and is already grabbing for food off our plates. She loves the smell of foods and always perks up when she hears dishes making noise in the kitchen. Even though she’s so enthusiastic for food, I want to wait until she’s at least 4 months before we try introducing baby foods.

I’ve been getting in a better morning routine with the kids. The baby needs to nurse at least twice before we leave to drop off my son at school, and I need to make lunches and breakfast for everyone. And to make it interesting, I’m continually trying to think of new quick and easy recipes that everyone will love.

So this past week I tried making our favorite Thomas English muffins into French Toast. Now French toast is one of my favorite breakfast items. My Dad use to make it a lot and it brings back great memories. It’s so simple and easy to make and you can put your own personal or seasonal spin on it like I did here.

Since my family loves pears, I made this French Toast with fresh pears that I sautéed with brown sugar and butter. They make a wonderful addition to French toast, especially when served with warmed Maple syrup. And what better way to celebrate the end of summer and approaching Fall season than by enjoying delicious pears.

You can use any flavor of English muffin for this recipe, but I used Thomas’ Breads new Pumpkin Spice English muffins. And let me tell you they are beyond amazing. Even if you think you’re all pumpkin pie spiced out, you have to try these. Even my husband who could care less if he ever see’s another pumpkin, couldn’t get enough of these. They are so good!
