Rain ~ Clouds ~ Picture of the Day ~ NY Subway ~ Pillsbury Easy Crescent Taco Bake ~ National French Toast Day

Good 43ยบ super foggy dark raining morning.
The rain was on and off yesterday. It stayed cloudy all day. We ended up getting another 1/2". 

Picture of the Day....
Nothing stops golfers, even a wildfire here in Oregon by the golf course!

Interesting about NY subway.....

The New York City Subway is a rapid transit system owned by the City of New York and leased to the New York City Transit Authority, a subsidiary agency of the state-run Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA). Opened in 1904, the New York City Subway is one of the world's oldest public transit systems, one of the world's most used metro systems, and the metro system with the most stations. It offers service 24 hours per day, every day of the year.
The New York City Subway is the largest rapid transit system in the world by number of stations, with 472 stations in operation (425 if stations connected by transfers are counted as single stations). Stations are located throughout the boroughs of Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx. The Staten Island Railway is not officially considered part of the subway, as it lacks a rail link with the subway system, so passengers traveling to another borough take a ferry or bus; however, free transfers are allowed to the New York City Subway and the MTA's bus system. The Port Authority Trans-Hudson and the AirTrain JFK, in Manhattan and Queens respectively, accept the subway's MetroCard but are not operated by the MTA and do not allow free transfers. Another mass transit service that is not operated by the MTA, the Roosevelt Island Tramway, does allow free transfers to the MTA and bus systems, however.

A couple photos I took when I was there in NY in the subway in 2008 and got a personal tour by my friend Joan Petit-Clair ...

We were on a cruise up the east coast, leaving from NY.

Eggy bread, omelet bread or gypsy toast is more commonly known as French Toast.   Each year on November 28, people across the United States observe National French Toast Day.
Home cooks and professionals alike whip up a few personal favorites when it comes to french toast recipes. The base consists of eggs and milk whisked together. Bread is dipped into the mixture and fried until golden.  Many people also add some sugar, vanilla and cinnamon to the base.
The flavor of French toast can be brightened with a squeeze of a fresh orange or stuffed with sauteed apples and cinnamon.  Make French toast kid friendly by cutting it into sticks that can be dipped into syrup and healthier by adding any fresh fruit for toppings.  Nuts and seeds add crunch to this delicious breakfast fare, and don’t forget the whipped cream! Just a dollop goes a long way.
