Breakfast today was a miss, and it was entirely my fault. When I saw the description – Hawaiian Pineapple Stuffed Whole Wheat French Toast with Strawberries and Blueberry Cottage Cheese, my mind immediately went to Tonga Toast – only with Pineapples. I forgot all about the cinnamon and sugar and fried goodness that makes Tonga Toast what it is. I saw Hawaiian and French Toast in the same sentence and started drooling.
The bread was too thick for me to ever be able to enjoy. The pineapple filling was sweet and delicious, but I couldn’t eat all of that bread. After three bites, I passed it over to my husband. It was thick and dry and the whole time, my mouth was whining and complaining about how I promised the sweet, fattening goodness from the Polynesian Resort. It’s the first time in the three day diet that I’ve missed sugar. But, on the plus side, it’s also the first time in three days that the thought of bread made my stomach hurt.
I’m not a huge fan of cottage cheese, but the blueberry flavored cheese was a delicious contrast to the thick, dry bread. The fresh strawberries were red, sweet, and delicious, and also would have helped in making the bread more palatable if I had been able to eat them together. The bread was just too much for me.
Jim ate the breakfast that I couldn’t and enjoyed it – much more when he ate the French Toast together with the cottage cheese.
