Frugal Brunch. Frunch?
Happy Sunday! And happy August!
It’s another beautiful day here in Toronto. My goal today is to actually leave my property line (didn’t happen yesterday). I guess I already accomplished this goal by grocery shopping first thing this morning. I was able to buy a week’s worth of groceries for $85, $15 less than usual. Hurrah! Me and husband are thinking of heading down to the beach today. We don’t actually go swimming at the beach, just walk along the boardwalk, check out the shops, and buy some sort of baked good. Not a bad way to spend a Sunday.
Before grocery shopping, I had a small bowl of plain yogurt, blueberries, and walnuts.
After grocery shopping, I made some French toast. I used old bread ends that have been sitting in my freezer for Lord knows how long. Some were a bit freezer burnt, but that didn’t stop me! I simply zapped them in the microwave for a minute and they were as good as new. Or almost as good as new. I used to just throw bread ends into the compost, but now I try to freeze them and use them up in bread pudding and French toast. Just call me Frugal Fanny! Wait…don’t.
I scrambled two eggs with a bit of milk, vanilla extract, and cinnamon. I dipped three slices of the bread into the mixture and then fried them in my skillet. I topped them with a sliced peach and some real maple syrup. I have some leftover mix now that I will just add to in order to make husband’s breakfast once he wakes up. Easy peasy!
This was delicious but so, so, so sweet! I have my glucose tolerance test next week and I am starting to worry about it. I think I eat well most of the time, but have I mentioned the container of chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream in my freezer? Oy. I’d like to say I will cut down on the sweets, but honestly that little bowl of heaven after a long day at work is what gets me through. Let’s just hope and pray I pass the test!
And now it is time for me to drink coffee, i.e., the best time of the day.
