French Toast


French Toast

This doesn’t happen too often, but I felt like having French toast for breakfast this morning.
(French toast almost always reminds me of the old movie, "Kramer vs. Kramer." Have you seen that?)

Today I sprinkled a little cinnamon over the toast and didn’t use any syrup.
My sister adds just a bit of instant coffee into the egg and milk mixture. She said she got that idea from some kind of women’s magazine.

Hi Obachon, That toast looks good. i've been checking every morning since you made the grits. It all looks so good.

I like French Toast too! Haven't had this for a while now. The last time I made it, I sliced my toast horizontally in half and spread peanut butter on one of the slice. Then sandwiched them back together and do what you normally do with French toast: Dip and fry.

The idea of adding instant coffee sounds interesting too. I think it would be nice to add cocoa powder too to make a chocolatey treat!

> jim --- Hi! Welcome and thanks for frequenting my blog! :D So you live in the South now or are you originally from there? So nice to hear from another grits lover (you are a grits lover, right?)

> pinkcocoa --- Gee, peanut butter! Sounds like a real gooey French toast. I gotta give it a try someday. BTW, I tried out your Okara pancake the other day. The okara I got from the store was really dry, so the pancake didn’t turn out as soft as yours, but at least, it tasted healthy
; )

I remember Kramer v. Kramer very well. I liked the symbolism of the French toast - and I like French toast, too. When I first saw your picture, though, I thought it was a grilled cheese sandwich!

Hi Obachan.
I'm originally from Memphis but live in the midwest now. I love grits for breakfast with lots of butter. or as a cereal with butter, sugar and milk. I also love cheese grits.

> Annie --- Now that you say that…yeah, it does look like a grilled cheese sandwich :D I miss that, too.

> Jim --- Oh, no wonder you like grits :) I usually like them with butter/cheese, but I might invent a new Japanese dessert with grits someday. It’s one of my ongoing projects…

> MrsT --- How sweet of him! I envy you.

hi hi obachan
I got the peanut butter idea from the French Toast served at HongKong Style cafe here: peanut butter sandwiched between 2 thick slices of toast, dip in egg mixture then deepfried! Talk about all the goodness in this. I wonder why French aren't as big a size with all the goodness in food they have!
Glad that you tried out my okara pancake ;-) Maybe next time you can add in an extra eggs or extra milk to make it softer. Also if it's not as fluffy, try adding 1/2tsp of baking powder.

> purplegirl --- Blogging is really eye-opening, isn’t it? I often get creative ideas and that’s one of the reasons why I can’t stop blogging or reading other people's blogs…

I like this !! why? because the plot is Finally, the court awards custody to Joanna, not so much due to the evidence on both sides but due to the assumption that a child is best raised by his mother. thanks for sharing!
