Blogger Week #2- Post 5 Gold Coast French Toast-101 Cookbooks

I love the blog 101 Cookbooks. I know you probably do too :). Heidi makes the most incredible food- its fresh, its unique, its just plain amazing. I grabbed one of her breakfast recipes to make tonight (note: Josh also had some leftover lasagna ;).

Gold Coast French Toast

1 egg
1 cup undiluted evaporated milk (I used 2%)
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 slices bread

Beat egg; add milk, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Mix thoroughly. Dip bread into mixture. Brown on both sides on a well-greased griddle or frying pan. Serve with desired toppings!

Again, not a beautiful picture but it was wayy yummy.

On another note- the Frankster is sick :(. I fed him some turkey last night and apparently it didn't go over well. I think he was fearful today of getting sick on the floor and looked for any other place to relieve himself. He choose one of my duffel bags. haha I literally came home to #2 in my duffel bag. Poor baby. I hope he feels better!
After getting the monster all cleaned up (bath), I went to the gym and ran 4.5 miles and then did 15 minutes on the elliptical. What'd you make for dinner tonight lurves?

POOR frankie :( and poor you, with the duffel bag, haha but good story. I love b-fast for dinner and that looks great! I just had a veggie burger and salad, so lame but kind of nice to have simplicity after this weekend's craziness.

Great looking french toast...My mom always made us french toast for dinner when my dad would be away on a business trip. Nostalgic!
Great workout, too!!

I love the french toast. The steam rising off the top is especially cool!
For dinner last night, I brought a salad with black eye peas and wheatberries to work. Boring!

French toast sounds good though.

I hope the puppy gets better.

Aw poor Frank! (and poor duffel bag)

Dinner last night was homemade Swiss Chard Pie (kind of like a swiss chard souffle baked over a whole wheat crust) and some stovetop popcorn for dessert.

I hope Frank feels better! That french toast looks great. I'm picking up some rotissere chicken and making stuffing and steamed broccali! My mom was supposed to bring my smoked turkey down and she didn't!

Adam said...

Utterly decedent and delicious, French toast is also cheap, easy and simple. It takes five minutes to do and one minute to devour. Serve in bed on a tray with fresh coffee or tea, a small vase with a single rose and to the sound of hubby doing the housework.
