Breakfast Is On Me!






HAPPY PHILIPPINES INDEPENDENCE DAY!
(Spanish-American War, 1898)

White color of the equilateral triangle on the hoist side symbolizes equality, fraternity and peace. Blue and red panels are equally divided horizontally where the blue symbolizes noble ideals, political purposes, truth and justice whereas the red is embodied with patriotism, bravery, heroism, courage and willingness of the Filipino patriots to sacrifice life for cause of independence. (Philippines Flag dot net)

Did you know that if the red flies on top, it means that Philippines is at a major war? The flag of the Republic of the Philippines was adopted on May 19, 1898. The Philippine flag has two equal horizontal bands (blue on the top and red on the bottom during peacetime; red on the top during war) (Enchanted Learning dot com/asia/philippines/flag)




@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

In honor of today's significance to all Filipinos, before you head to check on all the goodies everyone has to offer, make sure you have yourself a great breakfast, on me! I saw this at Susan's over at "A Southern Daydreamer" and thought it'd be a great breakfast to serve to my own family-- and YOU!

Our drink to start the day, no OJ here today! We like to wake up our minds, too, so we'll have the Minute Maid Blueberry Pomegranate 100% juice that's good for the brain! I know "Brain" loves it!

I'm also flaunting my the beautiful red on the Philippine flag and some of my delicious red strawberries. I got them from Albertson's and they are juicy and sweet! It's my first time joining in with Stacey's FYRF fun, so I hope this is an ok start. (fingers crossed) (Just my luck, she's not available to host today, so I may just be the only one flaunting today, lol)

It's a croissant french toast! With some luscious strawberries, grapes and bacon on the side! I sprinkled powdered sugar on the toast then drizzled syrup around the berries.

Yum! Thank you, Susan!

A big thanks to our lovely hosts, Michael Lee and Stacey; and to all of you who came "peeking" in. Remember, BREAKFAST is the most important meal of the day... :-)

TABLESCAPING IDEA: ("Brain" wants more...) Have kids? Mix up your table menu! We did this recently. We ate dinner leftovers at breakfast, breakfast for lunch and lunch for dinner! Create a table that "tips" off your family of the food to come by using iconic ingredients as part of your centerpiece or have it on a tray nearby.

  5. I keep saying I am going to use croissants for the French Toast but always forget to buy them at the store. I am having out of town guests next week and this will be a pretty way to serve a delicious breakfast.

  7. This all looks so good. There is something so decadent sounding about croissant French toast. Forgive me while I fall from grace, if only for a single meal. You've certainly made me hungry.

  9. Hello my friend! I am glad you enjoyed it. I love breakfast..anytime! Now, of you could teach me how to make Lumpia & Pancit... sigh... I had a very dear friend that made the best... but she moved (I should have asked her to show me how before she did)! (oops hit post too soon and had to delete it) Lumpia & Pancit was what she would fix me on special occasions! Happy Foodie Friday! Have a great weekend ~ Susan

    Thanks for the history lesson. I never knew that about the PI flag. Do you know what the gold sun/star represents?
    Now about your breakfast. That croissant French toast is over the top! I'm so hungry now, but I don't think I have anything at home that will measure up! Thanks for the recipe. This weeks FF has so many great recipes, I don't know what to try first!
