A French Toast for 4 people. This is an easy breakfast recipe. I whipped this French Toast for less than 30 minutes …
I made this french toast for my son with the available 7 pieces of slice bread we have. He wakes ups, shouts that he is hungry and here I am scampering to make him full again.Sounds like a spoiled boy, and I, a slave mother, I beg to differ.He just get to be pampered sometimes when he is in a spring break and I want to serve my children too – this gives me satisfaction and feeling of importance.
As a stay at home mom, I always want to feel validated by my family. Often than not, I pressure myself to make everything perfect at home. I have to make sure that the kids are eating right, the clothes are clean and well pressed and the home is flawless and the bank account conspicuously intact after spending the budget for the week ( I know some of you stay at home moms have this experience, so please share your struggles… ) .I always find myself very exhausted due to these standards I set for myself. By the end of the day, I am so spent that I had emptied myself of what truly matters – TRULY LOVING MY FAMILY. I guess there are some guilt I am subconsciously hiding inside me. Since I am not working, I have to make it worthwhile by slaving myself to have a perfect family, which by the way, is impossible.
Last week, as I was browsing through the internet about motherhood, I bumped into this 19 things you should not say to a stay-at-home parent. I thought it was very much spot on and it is also funny because as I get bored and alone at home, I become sensitive and emotional. Sometimes even a slightest innocent comment from friends can somehow tick me off. So here it is . I got this from Buzzfeed.
As I was saying, spring break was over and done with a week ago and I still miss feeding my kids the whole day after they relax from playing video games – a privilege they get after doing chores and when it is no school days. Although I let them do what they want during school breaks, they get a lot of nagging from me too, ” Throw the trash, rest, put away the dishes, pick up your stuff!” I feel like I am a battalion commander. They really have their lives easy and I always nag them about that too – to their annoyance which they express by rolling their eyes. Sometimes, I just do not know what to do…
30 minutes or Less French Toast
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup agave honey or syrup to sweeten, your choice ( add more or less)
- 1 cup milk
- 1/8 cup sugar
- 7-8 slices whole grain slice bread
- ground cinnamon depends on how much you want. As for myself, I am so generous in using cinnamon:
- oil spray for toasting bread
- Put 2 eggs, milk, sugar in a large deep plate. Mix completely to dissolve sugar and scramble egg. Spray pan or griddle with oil spray. Dip the bread one at a time into the milk and egg mixture. (NOTE: Just dip the bread to wet and and some egg mixture soak a little to the bread - do not soak the bread as it will be too gooey and yukky.) So, just wet the bread in both sides and toast it in the oiled pan/griddle. Sprinkle with cinnamon and drizzle with honey or agave or syrup on top. Let the other side brown a little and flip. Drizzle the other side with honey. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Do the same to the rest of the bread. Garnish with Mascarpone cheese, and fruits. Enjoy
