Frenched Flax

Happy Saturday!

I love not having to set an alarm clock  :)

Besides bacon, we are running low on just about everything this morning, so I had to get creative with my part of breakfast.

We only had 1 egg left, so I made Nick’s french toast with the egg and some milk.

Once his was done cooking, I coated my 2 slices of ww bread in a mixture of ground flax, water, and milk.

It definitely wasn’t the same texture of regular french toast, but it tasted great!

While the french toast was cooking, I took some leftover diced apple, pecans, and cranberries from our salads last night, tossed with some cinnamon, and heated up for 1 minute in the microwave.

A drizzle of maple syrup completed this dish – I love the tart cranberries the most! I wish I had used more, but we ran out last night.

Nick also made coffee  :) Freshly ground Kona. The perfect thing to have on a frosty Saturday morning.

I’ve got to go start the car + defrost the windows so I can head out – I’ve got a bunch of stuff to do today:

  • Call my parents for our regular Saturday morning phone call
  • Get groceries
  • Run some Christmas related errands (hopefully!)
  • Do a fun blogger related errand  :)
  • Come back and get ready for a potluck tonight
