When my hubby goes out of town, we like to have silly night here. I like it because at the dinner table, everyone looks like this........
Instead of screaming at me about how much they dislike whatever it is that I have decided to make for dinner. We usually get into our PJ's before dinner, and then we all help cook. The menu is usually French Toast, but this particular night I decided to try out Pioneer Woman's cinnamon toast (I LOVE PW- think she is the best, and coolest!) Cinnamon toast was always a treat at my house growing up, but the girls hadn't taken to it yet.
Here is my cinnamon toast helper:
So you mix up the ingredients and spread it on the bread, unbelievably simple. Although it does take a little bit more effort than traditional cinnamon toast when you slather the pre-toasted bread with butter and sprinkle on sugar and then cinnamon. You actually have to have enough forethought to soften the butter. Or, have a fancy, newfangled microwave that has a "soften butter" setting. I can say that no one has ever accused me of having to much forethought!
Beware, do not turn your back or this might happen:
I turned around for one second and they converged! Before I knew it, half of my butter was gone! Thieves!!
Spread it on your bread- make sure you get it to the very edges.
Then you bake them. Even the dog was excited!
Maybe excited isn't exactly the word that I am looking for in this situation.
Here they are, just out of the oven. I have to say that I am a convert. Even though it takes more effort, Pioneer Woman is right, it is definitely worth it. Pioneer Woman is very often right, you should check out her two blogs:
http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/ , I love this one, as I am sure everyone else does. But, she has another, it's called Tasty Kitchen:
http://thepioneerwoman.com/tasty-kitchen/, this one has lots of other cooks who contribute recipes and such. LOVE IT!
Pioneer Woman also has a newish cookbook that a dear friend gave me for a housewarming present. I love it as well. Check it out on Amazon.
I highly recommend it- and reading her blogs!
Please don't think that this is all I fed my children for dinner:)) We also had scrambled eggs and strawberries, a very rounded menu.
