My first Blog Post Ever!

I am new to this area of the web but I’m diving into my first blog post.

The first stroke on a fresh page can be very intimidating so I thought

“Where better to start than at the beginning -with breakfast!”

French Toast cut like a doughnut, with berries, kefir, maple syrup & mint.

As I grew up one of the standard cook books our family would refer to if in doubt was The Joy of Cooking. When I moved away from home I was gifted my own copy from my mother and I’ll likely do the same for my own children when the time comes.

Last Sunday morning as I was doubting my memory of the correct ratio of eggs to milk for French Toast I turned to my trusted textbook. The answer was much as I suspected (1 egg to 1/4 cup milk, for 2 slices of bread) but I noticed in the method was the suggestion that the bread could be cut with a doughnut cutter! I had the time to indulge in the novelty shape but I had no cutter but have no fear, I was sure I could MacGyver a suitable tool.

With the help of my daughter (an aspiring scientist), we made out wonderfully (see below).

She insisted on cutting 1 slice at a time to assure the accuracy of the circles ;)
