Friends, during this year and season of life, we are to look up–even when things around us seem dim. Inside and outside of our homes, there’s beauty. In steps my beautiful board, with a Trader Joe’s Brioche French Toast Board recipe for weekend hosting!

Filled with sweet pumpkin treats, I bought everything at Trader Joe’s! Or, for a smaller dish, try my Pumpkin Maple French Toast Bake!

In October, I focus on thankfulness. For gifts in life—material, relational, spiritual, and health. And for relational thanks, we are blessed with great people in our lives, and times of sharing meals with family and friends. This is why I love to create and serve food boards.

How do you keep the food warm?

I get asked this all the time. The instructions for baking the French toast say to lay them on a baking sheet and bake for 16 minutes.

Once they are baked, and if you’re not ready to serve the board yet, stack together and wrap with foil and keep WARM in the oven at 250 degrees until serving.

Prepare the board (with space for the French toast).

It’s all about timing with boards, and using your oven to keep food warm.

Friends, I know you’ve got this! :)

Thankfulness keeps me in the now. It centers me, keeps me from whining and complaining about what I don’t have. It also helps keep my mind on what I should be doing, rather than criticizing what others are doing..

I’m opening my home this month, are you? Even for only a few people.
