Double Wonderful French Toast

Summer is here, and we are loving our school free days. Every night the kids ask, as they always have, "what are we doing tomorrow?" and they love that my answer doesn't start with "school in the morning...". I would love to think that our days have slowed down a little, and they probably have, but we are eagerly filling them right back up with summer fun.

One of Bella's new found favorite things to do is cooking. She has been checking books out at the library and trying out new recipes.

On this particular morning, she made us breakfast called "Double Wonderful French Toast", a recipe from the book above. It was normal french toast, except it was stuffed with cream cheese or peanut butter and strawberry jam, then topped with additional jam and sprinkled with powdered sugar. Yes, I know, not the healthiest breakfast, but I'm trying not to cramp her creativity. Oh forget that, it's true, I wanted to eat the Double Wonderful French Toast myself!

She aquired two little helpers along the way that were eager to help and taste test for her.
I love how she is standing in the picture below, arms crossed and trying not to reach out and do it herself. She was gently instructing Grady on how to do it, very Mom-like.

Survey says: It was a big hit!

Happy Summer, have a great day!
