It has been a little while since I have had the chance to talk about cooking and I have a wonderful reason why. Things change rapidly when you have a five month old living in the house and we are having a blast with our new foster baby. Mostly hobbies get put on hold and all your attention is now focused on something much better. There is just something especially sweet about a little one falling asleep in your arms, thinking that you are the only one that matters and that they are safe where they are. Who knew happiness could be so wonderful. Looking into the eyes of my wife holding my “boy” is the most beautiful thing in the world.
Babies are also very exhausting though and many times you just want to do something simple so that you can relax for the evening. That is if you get the chance. I haven’t forgotten cooking. In fact, things have been done that I would like to blog about, but time is of the essence. In other words time is limited. It was once said that children spell love “T-I-M-E” and I want to make sure that he gets the most of it. That means that FOOD has to be much quicker and simpler. Like spaghetti instead of a four course meal.
This is why I decided to talk about “French Toast.” I know that it is not really anything special, but it is something that any beginning chef to a professional can enjoy. I found a really easy recipe that does not take a lot of time and tastes exquisite. A little bit of Fruit or powdered sugar can make any French Toast have some appeal and this one is no exception. Use some Texas Toast and it will be thicker and fluffier. I would do it again and again; in fact, I have. Add a little bacon and eggs and you have a wonderful start to a new day.
With a five month old, simple is always the best way to go. Even if that means Kraft Mac-n-cheese, spaghetti, and Chef Boyardee. Just remember, “A little bit of sweetness can go a long way with your kids.”
