~Seeing Is Believing~

Good morning everyone. Are you ready for a great day? I am, but I wanted to take a moment and share one of the most unusual things I've ever seen. I was fixing a huge weekend breakfast and slicing the plumpest and sweetest strawberries ever, when look what I found........ Twins! I guess you could say Siamese twins. I think this is too cool. Have you ever seen anything like this before?? Well anyway, needless to say it was the topic of conversation during breakfast......
Mmmm, this looks good.....but where are your strawberries honey......
Now this is looking better...and I see a little bowl of strawberries.....
Now this is the best!!! Can you guess who's this is? French toast and strawberries, with a touch of whip cream.....too yummy. Hey, the whip cream is fat free.

This coming Saturday I'll be fixing another weekend breakfast....come on by, I'd love to see you. Hugs, Linda

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Oops, before I leave I must tell you Lisa had a most happy birthday and thank you all for the sweet comments.......


And, I just wanted to let you know sweet BJ is having a "Just Because" give-away this Thursday, be sure to drop by for a visit and sign up too. Okay, TAFN, Me

Hi Linda:-)

Thank you so much for coming by my blog and leaving a comment, I always enjoy meeting new people!!

I love French toast and I love strawberries but I've never had them together...I'll have to remedy that! hehe Oh, and of course, must have the whipped cream on top. Now that's my kind of breakfast:-)

Imagine finding a "siamese twin" strawberry! lol We have a pick your own strawberry farm near here and I go every year...can't say I've ever come across one like that!!

I do hope you come visit me again:-) xox

Yummy! When I stayed in my sister Angie's last week we had strawberries marinated in champaigne for dessert!

I can rec-(hic)-commend them...love Pam

She'sSewPretty said...

Too funny! I had a strawberry just like that last night. Your recipe looks yummy. I had mine with some sugar free jello.

Mrs. Mordecai said...

Oh, my! I'm going to have to get some strawberries when my ban on the grocery store is over!

Becky said...

Looks very delicious. I have never seen two strawberries connected at the tops like that. I have seen them connected side-to-side. They taste good no matter how you slice them :)

Tracie said...

Hi Linda,
That breakfast looks way better than what I had - yogurt and flax seed toast. But that's great to know there's fat free whipped cream, gonna have to get some of that.

The double berry is an original, good thing you had your camera. The only thing I can think of is eggs when my grandma used to get them from a farm down by Morgan Hill - we used to get double yolks all the time and she always said that was good luck! So, I guess your double strawberry or siamese twins will bring you extra good luck ;)
Happy day!
