Yawn, I'm tired! The weekend was too hectic and I have a tough paper on wednesday... so playing hookey from classes tomorrow. I'm planning an early night so that I can keep my grey cells working tomorrow. Just thought of keeping U guys updated on certain things, before I hit the sack! There was something cool that was going on yesterday... Pie In The Face Day! It's fun 'coz all U do is throw pies on anybody's face. A good way to take revenge on someone you don't like, Eh? Gives me ideas too!
Tuesday's also French Toast Day, and I have already told mom to make me some for breakfast. It will be a sweet morning for me and also get me going for the day. I gotta cram up, remember! So, while I get some shut-eye, here's my mom's recipe for Banana French Toast - She usually makes this the night before and refrigerates till baking time.
2 ripe medium bananas, sliced
1 tablespoon lemon juice
12 slices French bread, untrimmed
2 beaten eggs
3/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
- In a bowl gently toss bananas with lemon juice. Arrange half the bread slices in the bottom of a greased square baking dish. Top the bread with a layer of bananas and remaining bread slices.
- In a medium bowl combine eggs, milk, honey, vanilla extract and cinnamon. Pour slowly over bread to coat evenly. Cover and chill for 6 to 24 hours.
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Uncover the baking dish. Sprinkle sugar over the bread and bake for 5 minutes.
- Reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees F, then bake 20 to 25 minutes more or until knife inserted near the center comes out clean and top of French toast is lightly browned. Let stand 10 minutes, and enjoy.
