We just got back from a wonderful vacation in North Carolina. As we were driving through the area, we saw a lot of signs with just one word, such as "Repent" and "Pray." We loved looking for them---they were just wooden, hand painted signs nailed to trees along the drive up the mountain. We also saw one billboard that really sticks out in my mind.
In a speech bubble at the bottom of the billboard:
"Dear God, why don't you send someone to cure cancer, AIDS, autisum, ect?"
In a speech bubble at the top of the billboard:
"I did, but you aborted them."
Thought provoking, isn't it?
I had to share this recipe. It comes from my Deceptively Delicious cookbook, by Jessica Seinfeld. This french toast was SO GOOD and SO EASY and QUICK! It's one of the fastest homemade, hot breakfasts I've made. All three of us loved it, so there is appeal to all ages! :)
4 large eggs
2 TBSP banana OR pineapple OR sweet potato OR carrot OR butternut squash OR canned pumpkin
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
4-6 slices whole wheat bread
2 tsp Soft Tub Margarine spread
Nonstick cooking spray
Maple Syrup or Confectionners Syrup
Flaxseed meal (optional)
In shallow bowl, whisk the eggs, puree, and cinnamon. Add the bread slices and turn them in the mixture to soak for 30 seconds to 1 minute. (Do not let bread get soggy.)
Coat nonstick griddle or skillet with cooking spray and ser over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, add the margarine. Once the margarine sizzles, add the bread slices (sprinkle now with flaxseed meal) and cook until golden brown on both sides, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Serve warm with syrup and/or confectioners suger on top.
I keep fruit and veggies purees on hand, but if you don't, a banana is really quick and easy to puree. Just cut a few pieces of banana and place in your blender or food processor, add water and puree.
This is so YUMMY!!!
There is a website about this cookbook...
The FDA approved that the morning after pill (Plan B) can be purchased without a prescription by 17 YEAR OLDS?! I am sick to my stomach.
It's my month to pick the book for my book club. Any recomendations? Read any good books lately?
On Sunday Aaron
and I celebrated 6 years of marriage! It has gone by so fast and we've been through so much. It's been a great 6 years and I look forward to many more! I love you babe!
Now, the main reason for my post. :) I've started clipping coupons online. The main site I use is moneysavingmom.com. I was wondering if any of you do this? What site(s) you use? What I've mainly been trying to do is find coupons for things I will be buying anyway and using those, not clipping a bunch of coupons and buying things we don't need or will use. I have clipped different brand names for some things. Anyway, I would love any advice! I've also just gotten a CVS extra care card, but the whole CVS shopping pheonomenon sort of scares me! :)
