Day 56 : Banana Stuffed French Toast

I apologize in advance for the very short post, but I am not sure how much longer I have before I am laid up in bed for the rest of the night.  I am afraid I am falling prey to whatever has plagued my house for the week finally.  I did however find the strength to make dinner tonight before the worst of it so here it is.

This is a great tasting dish and one that impresses!  Super simple to make, but full of flavor and freshness.  The best thing about it is that it runs between 7-10 weight watchers points (on the old system anyway) depending on the exact ingredients you use.  I recommend making this for someone special in your life very soon!
