Week 32 Menu

It is TOO HOT to cook. It’s actually been quite warm in San Diego this weekend, and I know I absolutely should NOT be complaining, but I’m so glad we don’t deal with this all summer! I’m so spoiled here…what will I do if we move away in a few months?!?! I no long have a spine when it comes to weather…

This morning I made some french toast on the stove real quick – but I added milk, cinnamon, a little sugar and vanilla to the egg and used Brioche bread. It was GOOD, better than just boring old egg and bread. Cate’s just discovering french toast and is thoroughly enjoying it, asking for it every morning! This is a pic of the pretty bread we used this morning.

POST YOUR MENUS! Especially if you have ideas of good summer things to “cook” – I need them!

    Have you ever tried the martha stewart stuffed french toasts on the website? We love them at our house. Banana nut and then strawberry cream cheese are our favs. We’ve used Great Harvest cinnamon chip bread for french toast as well and that was amazing. And the food network has this recipe that calls for flour and it’s really good as well. I heart french toast.

    tortellini with marinara
    caesar salad
    frozen peas (the kids eat them frozen. So weird.)

    Chicken Caesar pitas

    beans and rice

    creamy tomato soup
    grilled cheese sandwiches
    fruit of some kind


    hawaiian haystacks
