Better late than never. I painted this 'wee witch' for the Melange Challenge, but I missed the deadline :-(
Today was one of those days when you just want to stay in, lie on the couch with a cozy blanket and cup of coffee, and watch episodes of Everybody loves Raymond. At least I do :-) It was windy, dark and stormy. The sky was an eerie shade of black and grey, and as I write I can hear the wind howling through my window. Fall is definitely here, and I love it! I started the day with my favorite breakfast which I can only make when I don't have to work. It is a healthy french toast and I will share the recipe with you. I can't remember where the original recipe came from, but I may have modified it..this is how I make 1 serving:
Healthy French Toast First get your sauce ready...in a small saucepan add some frozen blueberries, raspberries, and half a teaspoon of honey. I add a spoon or so of water...cook them under medium/low heat until the berries are fully thawed and the mix is bubbling.Set aside.
Add some butter to your frying pan, and melt over medium heat. In a shallow bowl beat 1 egg, add a bit of soy milk (or almond milk) cinnamon, and some powdered cocoa or chocolate if you have it. Add 1 tablespoon of ground organic flax seeds (very healthy for you, and easily found in health food stores).Dip 2 slices of whole grain bread in the egg mix. Cook in your pan until ready. Place your french toast on a pretty plate, cover it with your berry sauce. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and more ground flax if desired. Enjoy with a big mug of coffee.
Don't forget that my birthday giveaway is tomorrow, so if anyone is interested in winning a shabby girl painting, here is the post to comment on : here
