Weekend Drool Fest Debut

Welp, looks like my breakfast veggie post stirred things up, huh?  I like thinking outside the box- it's that MBA In Training part of my personality.  It has been fun taking a break from the usual and having asparagus for a record of 3 meals straight (true story), starting with breakfast.
I hope you guys had a lovely weekend.  Mine was fabulous.  While I spent a lot of time with my favorite family and husband I also got my cook and grub on. 
In an effort to build some structure around here, I'm introducing a few theme posts that I can do several times a week to keep me away from endless nonsense, and to hopefully give ya'll something quick and possibly fun to read!  I'll be covering the things I do best:
  • Weekend Droolfest- breakfasts, lunch, or other stand out meals
  • Snack Time- I like lots of snacks and would love to share some
  • Shakin' It- New workouts (or old workouts that I enjoy)
  • Random- I can do whatever I want, so expect nonsense
  • In my cart- My favorite grocery store purchases
How does this sound?   Let me know if there is anything else you would like to see.
Ready? Here comes my first weekend highlight- breakfast!

Coconut Millet French Toast
After much blog excitement, I grabbed millet bread when I went to Whole Foods last weekend.  I was expecting it to sing to me, or at least bring me a unicorn.  It was good- the texture was interesting, and the taste was mild and slightly sweet. 
When my husband asked what was up for breakfast this morning (don't worry women's lib movement ladies- he only gets to eat after he makes me a latte) I decided to test this wonder bread out on him.  I came up with Coconut Millet French Toast:
- 3 slices Food for Life bread
- 1/4 cup light coconut milk
- 1 egg
- dash of bourbon vanilla
- cooking spray of choice
- strawberries
- toasted slivered almonds
- maple agave syrup

-Combine coconut milk, egg, and vanilla and soak your rainbow unicorn bread in the mixture for a little bit, then throw toast on hot skillet for about 2-3 minutes per side.
-Top with your toppings of choice

My husband really enjoyed this.  It wasn't too sweet and the toppings made up for any sweetness lost in the french toast mix.  I served it with extra eggs and conversation- all in exchange for my morning latte.
Breakfast is my favorite meal on weekends because we get to enjoy it outside in the nice weather.  And it involves coffee.

I hope your week is off to a great start!  Tell me your favorite french toast or breakfast toppings!
