Big weekend for little B. He had scrambled eggs with melted cheese. Two bites of tuna salad sandwich. And instead of our regular pancake breakfast he tried French toast this morning. Okay, I admit it was easier to make and less messy but since I made it with whole wheat bread and a little applesauce I felt like it was just as nutritious if not more.
And for C. who said why not cook on weekends and freeze food, I would now like to say it's just about impossible to run after an 11-month-old and make soup or meatballs at the same time. I started making a cream of broccoli soup at 1 p.m. this afternoon and planned to finish up during naptime but he never took a siesta so I just finished pureeing and washing dishes at 7:30 tonight. Bleh.
2 pieces whole wheat bread
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon apple sauce
Preheat a Teflon pan on medium heat. Cut both pieces of bread into 4 strips. (For some reason a friend of mine calls this French Toast soldiers?) Whisk the egg, milk, apple sauce and cinnamon in a deep bowl. Dip each strip of bread in the mix so both sides are coated. Fry about 2 minutes on each side or until toasty brown.
