Happy Tuesday! I thoroughly enjoy my Tuesdays these days because I get to spend Tuesday morning with Beth Moore...and about 200 other women...via video...but still!! It is completely transformative, and boy, do I leave convicted but refreshed. Wow. Revelation is an amazing book of the Bible. We are digging in, and learning so much about our God, and about Scripture, and about ourselves. What a morning!
I picked up Zoe from preschool and she was "soooo hungry, Mom" and I was really in the mood to pick up some fast food, but I refrained. Last week was hard with Buck being gone and lots of busyness going on that we slacked on the "no fast food during the week" rule we are trying to enforce. So anyway, I got busy making this for lunch:
Although it certainly did not look this pretty. No whipped cream or chocolate drizzle, but man was it yummy. Zoe was practically licking her plate--those of you who know her know that has been known to happen at our dinner table. :) My kids LOVE breakfast and I don't do breakfast for dinner nearly enough. Breakfast for lunch? Another quick and tasty option--that I know my kids will eat!
Here's how to do it:
Caramelized French Toast
4 Tbsp. butter/margarine
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon cinnamon
8 slices thick bread (I just use our whole wheat sandwich bread)
2 more Tbsp. butter/margarine
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup water
Beat eggs and milk together in a bowl. Stir in cinnamon. Melt 2 Tbsp. butter in a pan or skillet over medium heat. Dip bread 1 slice at a time into egg mixture and fry until light brown and egg is cooked on both sides. Melt 2 more Tbsp. butter as needed to keep frying all the bread (I used butter-flavor cooking spray as well to keep the pan from sticking if you don't want to use all the butter). After all the bread has been cooked, melt 2 Tbsp. butter for the sauce in the same pan. Add brown sugar and water and stir to mix. Let simmer for 2 minutes until slightly thickened. Take cooked bread and dip it back in the sauce, coating on both sides. Serve with sprinkled powder sugar on top. The sauce is like a homemade syrup and the powdered sugar makes a sweet, slightly crunchy glaze. Yum!
And finally, my latest bargain find and possibly my new favorite pair of shoes:
I am not kidding you they were $6 on clearance at Target. I LOVE that place. And I just noticed my flip-flop tan line on my feet is fading...bummer. Have a great day,
