i bet you never thought you would see the rest of my twelve meals from 2010. apparently, my procrastination problem hasn't improved that much!
since i am having a hard time getting all my vacation posts written, i thought this would be the perfect time to show you at least one this week. i cross my heart i will share the rest, which is only a couple more... at some point! :) oh, and my twelve desserts for the year will hopefully pick back up in april.
(speaking of, i am in search of the BEST chocolate chip cookie recipe. if you have one send it my way! note: i don't like recipes with nuts. :) please and thank you.)
now down to business... this is the most delicious breakfast i have ever made!
when i was younger my pawpa taught me and my sister holly to make his french toast. i remember both of us loved making it so much. that we literally ate it every meal for a couple of weeks. kind of ridiculous, but hey if you love something... sometimes you just can't hold back!!
making french toast for the mister was a little nerve racking, but i think i totally rose to the occasion. i was super proud of myself for not looking up a recipe, and just doing it from memory.
texas toast (way better than regular bread)
eggs (my rule of thumb is one egg for each piece of toast)
powdered sugar (this was for the mister, i'm not really into powdered sugar)
first i mxed two eggs, with a smidge of milk, and covered the mixture with cinnamon. this is enough for two pieces of toast.
next, generously butter both sides of the toast.
once the mix is ready, lay your buttered bread flat in the container. let it sit and soak up the goodness, then flip it to the other side. again, let it sit and soak. :) i used a rectangular container for the eggs that i could easily lay my bread in. it was big enough that two pieces of toast fit side by side.
when the bread is nice and full of yumminess, cook on the stove top until both sides are slightly brown. i put our stove on medium heat.
after cooking, lightly sprinkle with more cinnamon. add powdered sugar if that's your preference, and serve with syrup.
once i made this for the first time, the mister and i ate this every morning until we ran of out toast! kind of awesome. :)
