Calorie Watchers Beware:

After doing some serious futon beating this morning and to ensure we have sufficient energy levels for tonight's hanabi extravaganza...this is what we had for breakky today:



French Toast

Bread (whatever kind you like, slightly thicker is best so the milk can really absorb and go all gooey!)
Milk (if you are into soy, use it...it will still taste spectacular)
Vanilla (if you are in Japan, use essence...if you are in the real world, use vanilla bean pods!)
1 tspn of sugar (or sugar substitute if you are watching the calories!)
2 eggs (use more eggs if you are cooking for more than 2)
Butter for the frying pan (you can also use spray...but it doesn't taste as good!)

In one dish mix the milk, vanilla and sugar. In a separate dish beat the eggs. Cut the bread into manageable pieces and soak briefly in the milk dish, make sure you turn it over. Hold it up over the dish to remove the excess liquid and put straight into the egg dish, following the same procedure...Turn it over, drain etc.

Fry it up until it's golden brown on both sides. Serve sprinkled with fairy dust and cinnamon and a drizzle of honey (maple syrup would also be yummy!).



I think I just made my better half fall in love with me all over again!

    Oh, that looks delicious - and the fireworks look spectacular. My daughter saw fireworks in Japan and she is very scornful of the pathetic little displays we have in New Zealand, by contrast.

    speaking of vanilla almond milk...i bought some last night. it's quite tasty. not as full-bodied as soy, but a little sweeter. and easier to digest, i think.

    That sounds delish Bearette...wish we had that kind of stuff over here!
