1 cup milk
2 tbs. sugar

Juice of one orange
Juice of 1/2 lime
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
8 (1/2-inch-thick) slices
French Bread

1 cup sliced strawberries
1 cup sliced apple
1 cup sliced orange
1 cup raspberry jam
3 tbs. butter
1 tsp. nutmeg

Stir together all French toast ingredients except the bread. Set the mixture aside. Melt butter and sauté fruit. Add raspberry jam, triple sec, and nutmeg to fruit. Reduce heat and gently and occasionally stir until fruit is hot.

Dip slices of bread in egg mixture, coating both sides thoroughly. Cook on griddle or in skillet over medium heat until both sides are brown, turning just once. Place French toast on serving plates and glaze with 1/2 to 3/4 cup sautéed fruit. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serves 8.
