Egg-citing Eggs-periences: Croissant French Toast

I love French toast!  So, of course, when I learned about this decadent version from one of my favourite bloggers, Mack at mackmarie.com, I simply had to try making it!

I can’t wait to have left-over croissant to do this again! (I guess it would be way too sacrilegious to buy croissant just to make this!?) Continue reading “Egg-citing Eggs-periences: Croissant French Toast”

Green? or Blue?

As I look at these cranes Older Daughter has folded & decorated her room with, I think of a conversation she and I have rather often: are they green? or are they blue?  When we see a blue (or green) building/car/dress/book, I would see blue and she green, or vice versa.

Egg-citing Eggs-periences: Toad-in-the Hole

Our love affair with eggs continues with a family favourite: Toad-in-the-Hole.  This is a dish which could mean different things, depending on whether you are from the US or UK.  In the UK, sausage & batter are involved.  Our version is just the simple bread & egg.

Enjoy this quick & simple breakfast! Continue reading “Egg-citing Eggs-periences: Toad-in-the Hole”

When is a Smiley Face not just a smiley face?

Flying cheerfully & enthusiastically atop Somerset House when we visited a couple of months ago was this unexpected sight.  This Smiley flag was raised to commemorate Utopia 2016:  a year of Imagination & Possibility, celebrating the 500th Anniversary of Thomas More’s Utopia.

It was going to rain

It was going to rain so it was overcast and cool; the air had that swollen feeling, like a watermelon ripe to burst; there was a eerie quiet despite traffic sounds in the distance.  I could hear the birds sing with clarity, smell the pond, feel the brush of the wind.  Everything was poised for something to happen …

But it never did.  No rain yet.

Still, a perfect morning on record.
