I remember getting up early every year on the day after Thanksgiving to go shopping with my mom and her friend, Sharon. I wasn’t even a teenager then, but it was always a fun day. We’d leave the men at home to nap on the couch and watch football, while we hit the sales, lunched and scored some amazing deals.
These days, I steer clear of the barricades, tents and 3am call times. It’s become way too much, way too early. But, if you’re one that’s taking a break in between those Black Friday shopping excursions, then this post is for you. I’ll even make it short and sweet. Very sweet, in fact.
We enjoyed this ‘French Fridays with Dorie’ recipe for breakfast yesterday morning. And it’s definitely a dish I’m thankful for… the crackly, sugar-coated edges and soft, pillowy centers. It’s an indulgent treat, and one that will give you just enough energy to hit one more sale.
