Today, this morning, the boy began medical school. He will be so busy studying for the next half a decade or so, and I doubt he'll be having such an extravagant breakfast any time soon ;) so, this weekend, I treated him to a Blueberry French Toast feast. By the way, it was his idea to make a nice breakfast together. Love him.
1/2 cup low-fat milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
Cinnamon to taste
4 slices of multi-grain bread
2 pats of butter
- 1. In a bowl, whisk eggs, milk, vanilla, and salt until blended
- 2. Place small skillet on stove over a low fire. Melt a teaspoon of butter.
- 3. Dip bread slices, one at a time, into egg mixture, pressing lightly as you coat both sides well.
- 4. Place the bread into the skillet, press blueberries into it, and sprinkle with cinnamon. Cook 3 to 4 minutes until lightly browned then flip for the same amount of time.
- 5. Transfer French toast to plate and serve with maple syrup.
Bon Appétit! As Julia Child would say. We actually just saw the film, Julie & Julia, as well and I very much enjoyed it. Meryl Streep (as Julia Child) was amazing as usual, and Julie's story, as a blogger and cook, is wonderful but I thought it was a bit long. I felt this way about the book too, I tried to read it two years ago and could never get through.
Above all, though, the intertwining of the two foodie's stories was done in such a way that I stayed interested and intrigued. I'm very glad that I went. Have you seen it yet? Thoughts? Opinions?Despite the fact that the delightful smell of Blueberry French Toast filled the air I wanted oatmeal. Surprising. While the boy was mastering the art of his gourmet breakfast I made my steel-cut oats with almond milk, banana, and raspberries on the stove right next to him. Cinnamon, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt went into it as well, in addition to a few blueberries :).
I hope you ate "the most important meal of the day." Good luck at your first day of school sweetheart.
