A lovely Morning....Post One
Good Morning there, I'm going to rewind a bit...To Sunday Morning...I got up and decided that I wanted French Toast which I haven't had in forever. What about you?
so anyways I decide to get busy even set the table for me a Vee to start our day off better.
I pulled out the Abuelita chocolate which I haven't had forever either....I decided that I was going to try to have a small amount...I have a secret...I tried chocolate cake at Yuliana's birthday Party...and I didn't have a panic attack...Phew...I just told myself that if I did I had my pills... I was so excited. Back to the Hot chocolate, It's such wonderful flavors If you haven't tried it you really should it's it most store where there is a Latin section.
Just take one disk or half depending on how much your going to make and how much you like chocolate...and add milk on a low heat then check it and stir ..
Next was putting on the Syrup for the French toast.
The Recipe is so simple...I have never ever bought syrup...I have always made my own.
One cup of white sugar
One cup of brown sugar
One teaspoon of pure vanilla
One cup or so of water
Bring to a boil then turn down to simmer for at least twenty mins...you can do longer to make it thicker but I suggest that you make more cause it will melt down. I don't like mine very thick.
And now the dip for the French toast, which I'm sure most of you know but this is what I do
Forth cup of milk
Teaspoon of pure vanilla
Bread slices, dip on both sides, oil and a tablespoon of Butter into a black skillet...More oil than butter ok.
Fry on first side and turn over and Fry on the other side...
Lately I have been having memory flashes, If that makes sense..and this made me remember when all my children were young and on Sunday mornings I would make a big breakfast. On Saturday's I would go to the Farmer's Market and buy apples to make applesauce for them for Sunday morning's breakfast they would put it on their French Toast..it was so yummy...
I sprinkled them with powdered sugar....
I had made Raspberry Jam the other day, just a small amount. . .
I love these plates, I only have two and it was just perfect for me and Vee's breakfast...
I used this little bowl to put some melon into...Blue & White I just love it...can't help it.
I used just a little bit of both, the syrup and raspberry jam...out of this world the flavor...
I enjoyed my breakfast with just me and Vee...thank you for coming to join us...with love Janice
