We had a great day, both kids are feeling so much better, and that made this mama SO happy. : )
I wanted to pop on here to share the most incredible french toast recipe ever!! Last week, a Facebook friend had a status about making French Toast with Cinnabon flavored coffee creamer. I was very intrigued! Sadly, Publix was out of that flavor when I went to get our Christmas day fixins', so I had to improvise. I ended up choosing Nestle's Coffee Mate in Warm Cinnamon Sugar Cookie flavor. This morning I wanted a quick breakfast, and that's what I got!
|Am I the only mom who loves buying seasonal/holiday paper plates for my kiddos? Dollar Tree has them for every season/holiday/occasion - I'm a sucker for fun tableware!|
I mixed 4 eggs with the entire container of creamer, plus a liberal dash of cinnamon. I used 10 pieces of store brand white bread. It was sweet and delicious with a swirl of maple syrup on top! We also had a pan of Sister Schubert's pigs n blankets, and some turkey sausage patties and links, served with orange juice and hot cocoa. Perfect Christmas morning breakfast! : ) It would also be perfect on New Year's Day, or Valentine's Day!
Next time I shop I will try again for the Cinnabon flavor, or I'll just pick a different flavor to try this recipe with! If you try it, let me know what flavors you enjoy, too!!
Here are a few pictures from today - my kids didn't get a lot this year, but they did get things they wanted, and we were all home together - and to me, that is the best part of celebrating Christmas - family, and celebrating the birth of Jesus!! So Merry Christmas, friends, and Happy Birthday, Jesus!! xoxo
