Fowl Weather...


We spent the last four days building a duck coop and getting to know the girls.
Today, the weather took a turn.


And the girls are the only ones enjoying this 'fowl' weather.


Rainy days = comfort food.
What can be more comforting than a giant dish of white bread..
Sugar, eggs and cream mixed in to a giant dish of white bread.


Baked French Toast
Oven to 350
1.  tear up a loaf of french bread - throw into a greased casserole dish.
2. Crach 8 eggs into a bowl


3.  Add to the eggs:
2 cups milk (2% or whole)
1/2 cup heavy cream
3/4 cup sugar


..and two tablespoons of vanilla.
Mix well and pour over torn bread.


4.  In a separate bowl:
Take one stick of butter (1 cup) and cut with a pastry cutter.


5.  Add 1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
cut with your pastry cutter to make little pea size bits.
sprinkle on top of bread and egg mixture.

  

Bake for 45 minutes.
I'm feeling very comforted...are you.
