Pumpkin French Toast

I love making french toast with thick-sliced homemade bread that is just beginning to dry out a little.
When I was in Virginia last weekend, I bought some multi-grain artisan bread from a home bakery, and thought it would be great for french toast. I also had some pumpkin left over from another dish, and decided to join the two into one delicious recipe.
This has a delicate pumpkin flavor that is not overwhelming. Hope you enjoy it.
