The Sunday Letter

Sunday Sundries | Vol. 2

Happy Sunday,

Before I recommend this week’s links, I’m first going to tell you all what my current favourite breakfast food is. Warning: It is rich and delicious.

Peanut Butter Bacon Banana French Toast Muffin

Step 1: Take an english muffin and french toast-ify it. Fry some sliced up bananas with it while you’re doing this.

Step 2: Bacon.

Step 3: Using the french toastified english muffin as your sandwich base, smear it with peanut butter, then add the bacon and fried bananas. Top with maple syrup or honey depending on your taste (both are good).

Step 4: EAT. You can thank me later in the comments.

Now, on to this week’s recommend links:
