Toast the French Way

This was close to how I felt last night.  Exhausted, tired, happy, in great need of a bath, and covered in pasta.

Well, maybe not the pasta bit.

The wedding I went to yesterday was beautiful.  The cupcakes came out lovely, (almost)  (tell you later.), The bride was stunning, everything was elegant, and everything went smoothly.

I don’t have any pictures to show you yet, so you’ll just have to be patient.

I know, I know, but wonderful photographers took the pictures instead of me.  So I’m sure it’ll be stellar.

However, if you have a crazy week ahead, full of busy days and late nights, what better way to start than with a good breakfast to send you off?

French toast is always welcome here.  Especially made with french bread.

Eggs, butter, milk, cinnamon, a hint of sugar, and bread of your choice.

Slice.

Combine.

Mix.

Dunk.

Fry ’em up.

Serve.

Recipe:

1/2  loaf french bread sliced

4 eggs

1/3 cup milk

1 teaspoon cinnamon

2 tbsp sugar

2 tbsp butter

Pre-heat cast iron skillet over medium heat, and set butter in to heat.  Meanwhile, mix together eggs, milk, cinnamon, and sugar and beat until combined.

Dip bread in egg mixture on one side, and then the other, then put in heated skillet.

Cook on one side until browned, and egg is fully cooked, than flip and cook the other side.

Serve with maple syrup and a sprinkling of powdered sugar if your sweet tooth demands so.

Or, if you’re like me, wait until they cool and munch on them all day without anything on them at all.

Yes.  I’m weird.

About Tabi

I love the simple things in life, like, wearing skirts and going barefoot. Cooking glorious meals to feed friends and family. Trying to find healthy food at the grocery store on a limited budget. Spinning wool, (yes that's from sheep and goats and llamas), crocheting, and weaving. Picking fresh produce out of a garden, pouring real maple syrup over pancakes, and making a warm and loving home for my family. However, I don't use only whole wheat flour. I do not take reusable grocery bags to the store with me. I indulge in boxed meals when I must. I prefer sugar to honey. I do not shop at Whole Foods, Trader Joes, or Earth Fare except on very special occasions when I have extravagant amounts of money to spend. I HATE cloth diapers. I believe in breastfeeding babies, but not until they're five. I buy pre-made baby food. Somewhere in all this, I want to find the balance between the fanatical and the uncaring. Somehow, I hope to settle on doable.
