French Toast | Storybook Breakkie

My son wants, what he calls, storybook breakfasts. Food items in the shape of things like UFOs or emojis and while he eats it, I have to string them all together and tell him a story. Today I made him French Toast. The way my classmate used to get them in school, for lunch.

This is part of the Lock-Down Recipes – meals I made using whatever was there in the kitchen. This is grilled chicken with mushy peas and creamy mash.
