Simply French Toast
Hello routine...nice to see you...well sort of. So, today we are all back to the grind here. I kind of felt bad for the boys. I mean seriously, this felt like they were done with school. Luckily, they were both good sports and got ready for school on time today with minimal complaints! Thank goodness!


It helped that French toast was a big part of the morning. There is nothing like French toast and cartoons to start your day off right!


I like starting the week off on a good note for them with special breakfasts in hopes that will bring good moods on for the day! I really like making French Toast with bread that I can slice. That way you can do thick slices and that is my favorite way to make this. I did a simple one egg and about 1/4 cup of almond milk with a little nutmeg...fried it up in a little Smart Balance light (I bet coconut oil would take this to a whole other level...next time), topped with a little powder sugar and maple syrup...simple and delicious! 


This was made with the bread that I finally made yesterday. I made a whole wheat sandwich loaf...


and a gluten free loaf for the illustrator.


Homemade bread of any kind can be kind of tricky, but I am working on a few techniques and combinations of flours. I overcame my fear of cranking the oven up! I took that baby to knew heights!


Dare I say that I love the gluten free just as much as the gluten full? I think I just did. The crust on this is so good! I know most of you don't have to eat gluten free, but I have to say that some of the flours, especially garfava and quinoa, have so much flavor and really make baked goods taste so much better. The crust on the whole wheat loaf is amazing too and the inside was so fluffy and chewy! The best part about having fresh bread in the house is that you are set up for easy tasty meals! We are having sandwiches tonight. Maybe not the most exciting, but for some reason I am looking forward to it. Maybe because the illustrator is making them? Things always taste better when he makes them...I don't know why, but they do.

Have you ever tried gluten free flours even if you don't have to? If so, what is your favorite?
