French Toast Casserole

Saturday was the official party for the girl child and my cousin's graduations.
She, from high school....he, from college.
It just made sense to my aunt and I to combine the party as 90% of the guests would be the same. Not to mention, convenient for the guests to not take up two separate weekend days during the summer!

It was a fantastic day full of friends, family, and FOOD! (of course!)

People came from all over to join us to wish two very special kids adults well in their future endeavors.

We had quite the spread...none of us ever learned to cook "small"...and then we always add in a few extra this, that, and the others to make sure nobody goes hungry!

My parents were up visiting for the week to enjoy both the actual graduation as well as the party. Needless to say, I enjoyed having the extra hands!

We made:
Deviled Eggs
Baked Beans
Potato Salad
Tuna Sandwiches
Egg Salad Sandwiches

We also had on hand:
Sausage and Peppers
Vegetable Lo Mein
Dirty Salsa
Veggie Sandwiches
Roast Beef Sandwiches
Seafood Sandwiches
Pasta Salad
Taco Salad
Cheese Tray
Veggie Tray
Spinach Dip
2 Cakes
Grape Salad

Then I was totally selfish and made my mother make me a batch of her brownies...just for us!

1 (16 oz) Loaf Cinnamon raisin bread
6 Eggs
3 Cups milk
2 Tsp vanilla
Confectioner’s Sugar
Maple Syrup

1. Place bread cubes into a greased 9 x 13 pan
2. Beat eggs, milk, and vanilla
3. Pour milk mixture over the bread cubes
4. Press bread cubes into milk until all are covered
5. Cover and refrigerate overnight
6. Preheat oven to 350
7. Cook for 50 minutes
8. Sprinkle with confectioner’s sugar and serve with syrup
