weekend recap and french toast

This weekend we went to a college hockey game. We are loving hockey right now and it's a plus that the concession stand carries my favorite ice cream.

I wanted to try something a little different then my regular weekend pancake extravaganza. I was in the mood for French Toast. You will be surprised how easy it is and more likely than not you already have the ingredients to make it.


Feeds about 2-4 people (Or two really hungry people)

  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 4 eggs (beaten)
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar 
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • Cinnamon (not necessary)
  • 8 slices bread (I used whole wheat, you can use white bread, french bread - anything you have)
  • Butter or olive oil for the pan. 

    • Whisk the milk, eggs, salt, vanilla together in a large bowl (large enough to dip each bread slice in) and sprinkle some cinnamon in the bowl.
    • Heat a pan on medium/high heat.
    • Take a slice of bread and dip it in the bowl of the egg mixture, and then dip it on the other side. If there is too much egg mixture - let excess drip off in bowl, and then place in pan.
    • Let the bread fry - about 30 seconds to 1 minute until it is  golden brown.
    • Cook it on the other side and then put it on plate to serve.
    • Sprinkle some more cinnamon and syrup and enjoy!

    I also made new bracelets like the black skull and gold accent bracelets while enjoy some sweet tea. And I am getting orders ready to ship out.

    We went to our favorite Italian deli for some lunch and enjoyed a few movies.

    We watched two of my favorite Gene Wilder movies: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and  Young Frankenstein. I do love Gene. I hope you had a joyful weekend and have a lovely week!!

    Your jewelry is the bracelets. Those two movies happen to be my favorite Gene Wilder movies..also, "Blazing Saddles," but then I'm a sucker for Mel Brooks too!!

    French toast is one of my favs for breakfast. Next time, try using Texas toast...around here we can buy in in loaves already sliced, but you can do your own by just buying regular loaf of unsliced bread, like Italian, cut in in thick slices, using your recipe. I also put Mexican vanilla in my egg mixture and a bit of nutmeg.

    Have a great week.

    Hi Georgina - Thanks so much for your sweet comments. I have been meaning to watch "Blazing Saddles". I just might rent that this weekend!

    And I will try Texas toast the next time I make French Toast. Mexican vanilla and nutmeg sounds very good! Thanks for the tips!!

    Take care!!!
