It's 6:30pm, Time for Breakfast

Yep, that's right. Most of the time if the Marshalls are eating eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, French toast, quiche, etc. it's at supper time. I've stated before, but I will again for those here for the first time, we love breakfast food, but none of us are big early morning eaters. If we are going to have a big meal for breakfast, we prefer it to be about 10am or after. (Yes, I love brunch to answer your question.) I'm sure Alex gets this from the 2 of us, but I'm not really sure where we got it from b/c both of our parents all eat breakfast; and can't start their day w/o it. Me? The thought of eating anything as soon as I get up almost makes me nauseous. As a kid, my mom was happy to get some vitamins and glass of milk or juice in me before school. (Believe me she tried many times to get me to eat something more substantial.) But for supper?? Well that we all love. It's almost comfort food to us to have it as our evening meal. Now I know where this came from b/c my dad used to fix breakfast as supper when I was a kid, and it was a huge treat when he did. (Is it just me or even men who can't cook--which my dad can--can make really good breakfast?) Alex gets so excited when he sees something that involves syrup on the supper menu I post on the fridge weekly. And for me I really like it b/c it gives me lots of other options from the "breakfast food" category to use as dinners. But rather you make this at 7am for a bright and early breakfast, 11am for a brunch or 6pm for a family dinner, it is yummy any time of the day!

 Cinnamon French Toast

6 slices Texas toast (can find a loaf in the bread aisle)
3-4 large eggs (depending on how big they are)
2 1/4 c. milk
3 TBS ground cinnamon
3 tsp vanilla
3 pinches salt

In a large bowl whisk eggs, milk, cinnamon, vanilla and salt. Mix well. Preheat an electric griddle to 350. Lightly coat w/ cooking spray. Dip each piece of bread in egg mixture for 20 seconds, making sure to coat each side. Fry on griddle until brown and crisp on each side. Cut into portions and garnish w/ powdered sugar.
