French toast

I haven't posted in about a week for a couple of reasons: (1) we are now in the 'pete and repeat were sitting on a boat' phase of our year--you know, eat, sleep, swim, travel, work, feed baby, eat, sleep, swim, etc. so I'm not sure what merits mention on the blog, and (2) I am crazy busy with all of the abovementioned activites.

But, whether or not this is impressive to anyone else, I must share how many pieces of French toast (homemade by Mark himself) Mark ate on Saturday morning.

Want to guess?

8-10! He stacked them up like pancakes. We finished off the entire loaf.

After Michael Phelps told Anderson Cooper that he eats 10,000 calories a day, people have been utterly interested in Mark's caloric intake (and they ask me... as if I count how many calories my husband eats throughout the day).

The truth is that I, too, wonder how many calories Mark eats in a single day.

Ohhhhh.... I am sensing a little experiment coupled with a contest. Stay tuned for details...


  1. Hmmmmm... so many parameters. I'm going to say based on his breakfast, he'll be around 6,000 per day. Absolutely no idea, but will be fun to learn!

  2. I would say 5000 calories per day.
