Food from ‘da hood.

I acquired this plate of deliciousness in ‘da hood. You know, that part of town where gunshots are fired and drug deals are done out in the open.

french toast

Yet Saturday mornings in this particular part of town are pretty quiet — it’s that time of day when thugs are too hungry to be committing their crimes and pimpin’ is kept to a minimum. Totally safe, right?

The hubs and I ventured in to grab us a plate of morning time glory. It’s the best damn French toast on the planet! With a side of sausages, of course.

I’m a low carb kida gal. It’s working out well for me. But can’t nothing keep me from a plate of French toast when it’s time for carbification to be allowed on the menu.

Not even a minor technicality like drive by shootings can hold me back. Pretty sure I’m related to Superman. You can catch me leaping ‘hood buildings in a single bound to grab me a plate.

    I do not blame you for that! OMG! That french toast looks almost good enough to die for – holy YUM! One of my fav breakfast foods as a kid was french toast and my dad would make it for me on the weekends. I may just need to bust this out this morning…for the kids of course :-)

      Please send me your breakfast through the food teleporter. I will be the judge of the inadequate breakfast. Yet once you send me the food, sorry, no returns. And for good measure, send me your lunch, dinner and snacks, too. But no worries. It’s all for research purposes.

    I like waffles and chicken wings. Unfortunately the closet place I know of that serves them is Georgia. And that’s a 2100 mile trip one way :(

  6. That looks so delicious. I don’t do breakfast but I like Omelets from IHOP and I always sub the pancakes for french toast. It’s one of my weaknesses.

    I think a trip to middle east war zone might be worth it for that! Here in Baltimore, there are some not-so-great parts of town where they sell the most amazing bean pies on the street corners. Totally worth venturing out! (I should have taken you to get one when you were here for Fitbloggin!)

      As I sat there staring at your Dynamic warm-up for runners blog post, here you go commenting on my blawg. Our minds must be interconnected and fused by some gel-like powerful blog-reading force. But sad to hear you did not lead me to the bean pies. Totally not talking to you anymore. I banish you from my world!! (errr, right after I read your blog post)

  9. All about balance in life! :)

  10. I totally get it :) I have to venture off into one of the sketchier parts of town to enjoy a fish sandwich, (on sandwich bread of course) that is out of this world good!

    It would seem that even thugs wouldn’t want to shoot up a place where they can get such delicious food — they want to encourage the owners to stay open!

    How I eat French toast: I order a dish of maple syrup — like in a bowl. I dip, and eat just like a French dip. True story…

  13. Hope says:

    I’m not normally a French toastie kinda girl, but that looks so good, I’d definitely brave the hood to get some. Especially since I’m so hungry right

    Looks safe? Haha, not quite! – can’t trust those Frenchies! Looks delicious though :)

    There is something about hood food that’s just yummy. I guess is the looming threat that if you mess up someone’s food-you get shot. You got me craving a fried fish sandwich right now.

    It is my goal to someday get to the southern US to try a proper chicken fried waffle….someday…I need to know what it tastes like. NEED.

  20. Indeed, it is a very mouthwatering food and something you would want to always have on your plate.

  22. Hi Josie!

    I just came across your blog and you are so funny lol I love it. I see you are the low carb kind and so am I… but girl I am struggling! I did low carb to lose the initial 20 of about 40 pounds I lost. I realize when I plateau, cutting carbs gets my weight moving down again. But it is HARD. I love food! lol Do you have any posts you can direct me to that share advice on good carb treats you enjoy? I look forward to reading more on your blog :)
