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