Guys. Meet my newest obsession...French toast!
I made it once for Simi last week with gluten-free bread since she has Celiac and made it this past weekend with Trader Joe's sourdough and we were so in love. To make, I mixed together 3 eggs, a cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 1 tbsp maple syrup, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1 tsp almond extract, and 1 tsp cinnamon. I put the bread in a 9x13 inch pan and poured the mixture on top. I did this in two rounds since I couldn't fit all the bread in the first time. Let it soak for a few minutes on each side then cook in coconut oil or butter over medium heat for a few minutes per side.
I topped it with two sliced apples that I cooked in 1 tbsp coconut oil, 1 tbsp maple syrup, and ½ tsp cinnamon that I cooked over low heat (covered) for ten minutes.
Snackage included Made In Nature's new Veggie Pops. They're crunchy and super satisfying, especially when you want something savory that's not nuts or chips.
Dinner was my Power Mac & Cheeze (def went back for seconds!) using Trader Joe's frozen broccoli. I also added a can of Safe Catch tuna. Kind of like tuna noodle casserole! On the side we made a huge salad with local grape tomatoes, micro greens, goat cheese, red wine vinegar, olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic.
Throwback to when we saw Aladdin last week (such a great show and such a treat!) at the Palace Theatre and naturally we shared a box of my fave peanut M&M's.
In other dessert news, I made these Amazing Chocolate Chip Cookies last night and they were FANTASTIC! Be sure to measure the flour properly by spooning and leveling it into the measuring cup, not putting the bag in the flour and packing it in (which leaves you with way too much flour). The dough should be nice and moist. The freezing step is essential! I used avocado oil and they were seriously amazing.
Ripped black jeans, a blouse from a few years ago, black wrap jacket, and my fave black booties. In other news, the black Tom's heel booties I had for years (SO comfortable) are on sale for 32% off! Love thwm in brown, too.
Gray v neck sweater (also love this one), over the knee boots, and a green hat I found at a boutique in Nashville last year! Heads up that J Crew is currently having a 35% off sale with code FLASH. This adorable gray jacket is on my wish list!
Below are some sale items I'm loving lately in case a visual is more appealing than a bunch of links. Make this week a great one, pals!
