This morning I was really craving French toast.
I had some delicious bread from Eataly, some farmers’ market eggs to use up, and some leftover organic milk from when I made yogurt last week. (Note to self: must make yogurt again!)
I actually made this same recipe a few days ago, and it was so good that it merited a repeat.
The Simplest Easiest French Toast
- Stale bread (or not stale, but this is great for using up stale bread)
- 1/2 cup milk (I used 2%)
- 3 eggs
Mix the milk and eggs together. Soak the bread in the mixture for at least 5 minutes on each side.
Heat the butter or ghee in a pan. With heat on low, cook the soaked bread (poor any extra mixture that didn’t soak in right on top of the slices).

If you read Coco’s blog you might have an idea of why I disappeared on y’all for a week. (*hint hint*)
Bobby and I took a very spontaneous road trip down to Williamsburg, VA over the weekend + Monday and Tuesday. We left Friday and made it down to DC by 11pm. We left NYC by 5:30pm, but it was bumper to bumper on FDR for a good 45 minutes or an hour. I worked from home Friday so I could stop working early and also monitor my illegally parked car (it was only illegally parked for about 1.5 hours – I still cannot believe I didn’t get a ticket). I also had to do a few loads of wash.

What I Ate Wednesday
I had a nice day of eating Wednesday. This is happening more and more! I used to struggle a lot with how much I ate – I would eat too little, or too much, or overeat at night and feel sick – but lately I have been in a pretty good place with my eating habits. I still have days where I “feel fat” or feel the need to check myself in the mirror (to make sure I haven’t sprouted an extra head? who knows – how much can really change in a day) – but most of the time I am very much OK with myself as I am. I think it just comes with practice, like anything else.
Enough chit-chat, here is what I had:
- Cinnamon walnut bread (from the CSA) toast with butter; 2 slices of salami (Costco, heh); coffee of course; a calcium chew (Adora dark chocolate)
