STRAWBERRY FRENCH TOAST CANNOLIS

December 18, 2013

While eating this, I gleefully proclaimed to David, “these really aren’t that unhealthy!”

I received a firm side glare.

What I was thinking was that a piece of bread, a small(ish) swipe of cream cheese, and strawberries aren’t that bad at all. He rightly pointed out I was overlooking the butter, cinnamon sugar, and syrup. Whatever, I’ll embrace that they’re less than nutritious because that testifies to their tastiness all the more.
