Saturday Morning French Toast

This has to be one of my favourite breakfast items. It was a very much missed items from my diet when I started on this gluten-free journey. That was until I discovered Lorenzo's white bread worked out perfectly for this classic recipe.  

White bread slices
cinnamon sugar

If I didn't have to work today I would have thrown in some grated orange zest and triple sec. None-the-less this satisfied my Saturday morning craving for French toast.

Wingin' It!

The best meals are those that you just wing it and use what you have on hand. Breakfast is the perfect time to wing it. I just check what I have on hand and throw it all in, like this morning's breakfast.  

marinated artichoke hearts, chopped
gluten-free sliced ham (found at Costco)
yellow pepper, chopped
Italian seasoning
sea salt
freshly cracked black pepper
splash of milk
crumbled Feta cheese

Use whatever ingredients that you have, just do it!

It is the long-weekend here and if you're not out at the lake you should be firing up the Bar-B-Que this weekend. But I'm not doing either of those things. I need to stock up on lasagna. They're perfect for work lunches.  

Lean ground beef
Spicy Italian sausage
Tomato sauce
diced tomatoes
black pepper
white balsmaic vinegar
gluten-free lasagna noodles
ricotta cheese
parmesan cheese
mozzarella cheese
