    Up next to my avatar on the upper right (when on the main forum page), it lists messages, likes, and points. What are points?

    They seem to be rewards for certain actions on the forum, like posting or accumulating likes on your posts. He/She who dies with the most points wins!

    Oh, thanks! I kind of wondered what they were for and what you "collected" them for! :)

    Bragging rights? ;)

    In all seriousness, I think when @Cicada established/created the points system here, he had a larger plan in mind with them that just never materialized. Even if I could guess at what that plan might have been, I have no way to implement it.

    Oh, I guess I don't have a lot of bragging rights! -grin- But, thanks for the info! I just wondered! Don't even know how I've collected as many as I have!

    I've been sitting here all day doing Mod work on another forum, and I think I get bragging rights for how many old posts and threads I've deleted and cleaned up! :) I'm in the tens of thousands!

    That toast and egg combo is pretty sweet.

    Darn. Now I’m hungry.

    A free option, available right now, is the footpath outside your door. As hot as it has been, you probably could toast bread and fry eggs on pavement right now. And as an added bonus, if you're currently on the West Coast, your food will have a distinct smoky flavor. :rolleyes::p

    It's interesting that so many of us (me included) are at 113 points.

    Yeah, pretty sure there was a certain set of things to get to that point and that’s where the development of the points program stopped.

    :eeyore: Here's looking at the Mickey Mouse toaster . . . Guess we are all going to have to eat air-dryed (that's the nice way of saying stale) bread for breakfast now!

    That would be my guess as well, I don't think it's possible to go higher than 113 points at this time. I thought that @Cicada started the program with a temporary max of 113, figuring that he would fully implement it (whatever it is) before many of us started reaching the established upper limits. I figured when he introduced the full program, he would also expand the limits on the maximum attainable points (if still applicable, depending upon what the program required). Obviously that hasn't happened yet and there's no indication that it's going to ... so for the foreseeable future ... bragging rights?
    Make pain perdu! That's why the dish was created, as a delicious way of using (to use your words) 'air dried' bread that otherwise would have been thrown out.

    Or if you're feeling particularly ambitious (or bored), try making bread pudding (which actually is fairly easy, or at least the recipes I use are). It's also delicious and I find it works quite well with 'air dried' bread.

    We use our air-dried bread for French Toast. :) As for bread pudding . . . actually we've made the Cuban version of that - Puding (pronounced more like poo-THIng)! And that takes a lot of stale - I mean air dried - bread! But I could never stand it . . . too much egg and milk. But I love making anything with eggs . . . even though I can't eat them! -grin-

    No joke, we went to NOLA a week or two before Mardi Gras this year (good call us, getting a vacation in before the world went crazy) and my BF bought an entire King Cake from an amazing bakery/cafe there. And then smuggled it home in his carry-on bag. (The look on the TSA agent's face was priceless.) And then, confronted with an insane quantity of cake, he repurposed it into individual bread puddings (made in a muffin tin), which we were able to freeze. We've been able to defrost 2 portions at a time for a snack, with a quickly whipped up caramel or vanilla sauce. You can do anything if you just believe in yourself (and your carb product).
