Breakfast, branches and brooks

I have today off – two days in a row and beautiful weather! I lucked out! I decided to hop on the bus and head to a well reviewed breakfast restaurant, where I enjoyed two eggs, bacon, toast and hash browns (which I have been craving for at least a week now!) Breakfast did not disappoint – for a total of $12 (which included a tip), I got all this! And it included a bottomless cup of coffee. I will definitely be going back!

After my breakfast, I decided rather than taking the bus I’d walk back home and enjoy the beautiful weather. Spring is definitely on it’s way!

And there is nothing nicer than to walk along and enjoy the babbling brook!


Daily Thought – August 19

Wake up every day and have a healthy breakfast – it gets you going for the day and gives you energy! What’s better than french toast and orange juice?

French Toast

Day old French bread, sliced
3 eggs
2 tbsp. milk
2 tsp. vanilla
1 tbsp. white sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
Maple Syrup
Icing sugar

In a bowl, mix 3 eggs, milk, vanilla, sugar and cinnamon. Heat your frying pan, add a bit of oil and butter. Dip one slice of bread at a time, both sides, with the egg mixture and put in frying pan. When one side is golden brown, flip and cook until done.

Top with a dusting of icing sugar and maple syrup.

This recipe will make 6 to 8 slices of french toast, if you have more bread and not enough egg mixture, just add a bit more milk.
