Tuesday, November 28, 2017, is French Toast Day-blend up a great beginning to the day and indulge yourself with a savory treat. French toast is a great way to use up day-old bread because it soaks up your egg and milk mixture without falling apart. Once it is fried to your liking, top it with your favorite sweetness and/or lots of butter.
Basic French Toast
1/4 cup milk
1 tablespoon sugar
4 slices bread
1 cup pancake syrup
Beat eggs in a shallow dish, Add milk and sugar. Dip each slice of bread in egg mixture, coating each side evenly. Place coated bread on a lightly greased griddle or skillet. Use medium heat and brown on both sides. Pancake syrup can be heated in a microwavable bowl for 30 seconds. Top with butter, pancake syrup or toppings of your choice
By the way, please share your French Toast recipes! I’m sure there are many delicious ways to prepare French Toast.

Being a cad isn’t a fad
Yep, read between the lines
Is the daymare or nightmare
a sign of the times?
Nonetheless, it pays to be nice
Don’t stand in the wrong place
When they roll social dice
Mindsets off-kilter must be recast
Ridding the woes of a secret past
Does the compass lose its way
As campaigns start to sway
Liar, liar pants on fire
A calamity so dire
Has it become a new trend
To exist as a loose end?
Time to retune the forks
When we’re out of sorts
Jeepers creepers go the extra mile
It takes positive vibes to pull in smiles
