Isn't that something right there? Doesn't that look like it would make the perfect Mother's Day breakfast, served to me by my loving son and husband? Yeah, well...it wasn't ;)
I actually made this for Jesse last week as a big 'ol Thank You! for letting me sleep in undisturbed. Thursday's are his day off from school, so I try to sleep a little later. Unfortunately Jesse (who gets up at about 6am and lays on the couch watching Disney Jr.) loves to come in and out of my room telling me all the exciting things Mickey and the gang are up to...as it happens. And since my bedroom door is right off the living room, he comes in a LOT.
However this past Thursday, he didn't bother me at ALL! In fact, I was initially worried. I got up at 6:30 to make sure he was still alive and there he was, lying on the couch as usual. He said I could go back to sleep for awhile, he was ok. So I did. And it was WONDERFUL! *Sigh*...I have such a sweet boy.
So...even though Heath had already given him a small breakfast at around 6am, I decided to make him some stuffed French Toast. I thought of Yammie's recipe that I'd seen a few days earlier and decided to go off that. It was sooooo goooood!!! He dug right into it and ate that whole plate!
I had to make another for myself since he wouldn't share. Didn't care though. With the extra couple hours of sleep I was able to get, I could have cooked all day! :)

1. Place cream cheese in a small dish and soften in the microwave (about 12-15 seconds). Mix the sugar into the cream cheese and spread on one side of each slice of bread.
2. Put the blueberries and strawberries on one slice of the cream cheesed bread and top with the remaining slice.
3. In a shallow dish, whisk together the egg, cream (or milk), salt, vanilla and cinnamon. Soak both sides of the sandwich in the egg mixture for about a minute.
