Cinnamon & Sugar French Toast

Happy Thursday Foodies!  Much of the day yesterday I was moping around in a slight fit of self pity. The occasional conversation with my virtual foodies kept me sane as I was waiting for Nick to come home from work. The last couple of days life has decided to punch me in the stomach.

While much of my chaos right now is too personal to share, I will tell you one thing that is been annoying me - my nails. I know you are all probably gasping for air right now, thinking 'how can her nails really be causing a problem in her life?' Well, my disdain for my nails was growing because of everything else in my life.  When I was living on the Mexican border only three things made me happy about our small town: first, there was amazing Mexican food; Mexican food is one of my favorites. Second, I was living in a military town and I love our military. I LOVE seeing Nick in his uniform and I was in all of my glory seeing people in uniform running around town everyday! And, finally, I stumbled upon the greatest Nail Salon & Spa that I have ever been to. 

Spending almost a year there, I could not get enough of these fabulous service I received; my nails had never looked better. When we found out that we were moving back to the East Coast, specifically the DC area, I thought I would have no problem finding a Nail Salon/Spa that offered the same services and was equally as amazing. #NAILFAIL!  I have been so frustrated for the last 2 months that I've considered flying back to my little military town to get my nails down. In fact, Nick & I offered to fly Heidi - the best nail woman in the WORLD - to DC to find a job here… or start her own business. The fact that I'm complaining about my nails this morning means neither one happened.

Okay, moving on to the point.  Bad 2 days, bad nails, I was feeling craptastic last night UNTIL I signed onto my facebook page. Yesterday my facebook page hit a pretty huge milestone: it hit 1000 followers!! Can you believe it? I never thought I would hit 100 followers, let alone anything above that! I want to say THANK YOU to everybody out there who has supported, encouraged, shared, and talked with me! You are all so special and so amazing!!! You are the rock stars!!!

Now, should I get to the important part of this post?? Okay, I hear the sighs. Today I am bringing to you French Toast. This past weekend we visited my mom. She makes the BEST French Toast in the world, but I thought that I would give it a try myself. It all turned out phenomenally. And, added benefit - it is super easy to make.

Here is what you will need:

  • 1 to 2 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • Syrup
  • 4 to 6 slices thick cut toast

Directions:

 

  • In a large bowl, whisk together all of the ingredients

 

  • Heat a skillet over medium heat and grease with butter or cooking spray
  • Once the skillet is hot,  coat a piece of bread with the egg and cinnamon mixture - make sure every inch of the toast is coated

 

  • Allow each side to cook through and brown slightly and then flip so the other side can cook evenly through, approximately 2 minutes
  • Repeat with the following pieces of bread

 

Now, my mom always had that little bear that you can buy in stores that was full of sugar and cinnamon to sprinkle on the French Toast. We could not find it, so you can just mix regular sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl and sprinkle on top of your French Toast!! I personally love to smother my French Toast and Pancakes with syrup. So that is what we did, too!! This French Toast was out of this world delicious, if I do say so myself!

I hope you all give it a try!!

Until Next Time,

Happy French Toasting
