FRENCH THIS.

FRENCH THIS.

I mentioned making french toast with leftover brioche bread in a letter a week or so ago and OH BOY did that get my friend Jess excited. I then let her down immensely when I told her I don't love french toast. It's just not what I go for when I'm eating breakfast or brunch. I love a good savory breakfast. But I also don't love to waste food. Let alone bread that was really tough to make and took 10 eggs and a pound of butter. Oh no, I'm gonna eat it all. 

So I give you, french toast. Or as the french say pain pardu

2 tablespoons sugar
2 eggs
heafty dash of the good cinnamon
1 cup ish of milk

  1. Mix all ingredients together, throughly.  
  2. Place old bread slices in the egg mixture, flipping occasionally. Let soak several minutes. 
  3. In a medium heat pan, drop the soaked bread. Let bread drip excess egg and milk mixture in the bowl before putting in the pan. 
  4. After 3-5 minutes, flip to other side for another 3-5 minutes. Depending on how thick your slice is is will depend on the done-ness. The slice should feel firm in the middle and not soft. 
  5. Plate up the slices and drizzle some good ole' maple syrup from your friend who went to Montreal. Enjoy with a hot cup of coffee on a Saturday morning, or whenever really.

Things I'm watching, reading and listening to...

  • This is beautifully revamped Ordeal By Innocence heightens the terror of this Agatha Christie story. 
  • This new podcast Stories I Tell On Dates from former NBA player Paul Shirely is hitting the spot for me. We all have a number of stories we share that help explain ourselves and our past experiences to one other. 
  • At 91 she's a YouTube star, so really, anything is possible. 
  • What's the difference between an expat and an immigrant? Race, of course. 

Happy first day of school everybody!
