Fruit Toast
(1-4 Portions)

Get ready for a great morning!

I was talking to my brother Andy last night. We always talk about what people eat. He said that he was not amazed by what people eat, but he was amazed by what people don't eat. It made complete sense to me. I have to admit that I do not always choose to cook what some people consider the healthiest. But, I always do choose to cook tasty. In my mind "A happy heart makes a healthy mind".

If you are going to make this recipe- Do it right! This should be made on a quiet Sunday morning when you have time to relax and enjoy the flavors. Before you start, brew a strong pot of coffee and get the newspaper ready.

I think that this recipe will add years to your life!
