Making up for lost time

My farmer's market attendance has been more miss than hit this summer. Until the last week or two. Prepare yourself for some homemade lovely this week.

Whole wheat French Toast with a twist

Start with some leftover bread.
They make whole wheat french bread now, it was really good!

Couple of eggs, splash of vanilla, few shakes of cinnamon and nutmeg.

I saw this little jar of goodness sitting in my cabinet. My friend threw it in my bag when I ordered some Pampered Chef from her. So I threw in a few table spoons of this too, just to see what happened.

This happened. Non-stick skillet (this one is also PC, but whatever). Just a smidgen lower than "Medium" heat, let it take it's time getting cooked through, it's some THICK bread. And it IS worth the wait.

I also lightly browned some really good deli ham. I don't keep bacon on hand and this needed just a bit of protein (other than the eggs-ha!) for my taste. Also, I'm a syrup person. So use syrup, powdered sugar, fruit, or whatever you prefer, to top.
