French Toast

3 Nov

Oh, my sweet, sweet boyfriend. This time around…he cooked, and I ate!

When the boyfriend and I first started dating, french toast is how he “wooed” me. Seriously. He swore up and down that he was the master chef of breakfasts. Do you see how this worked in his favor? 😉

Then, he started making promises of making breakfast for me everyday since I go to work hours before he does. This sometimes happens. (He thinks that coffee makes itself every morning) But, when it does happen, it is pretty awesome.

I suck at making french toast. When I make it, its burnt on the outside and soggy in the middle. I also love french toast. I have distinct memories of my mom making it for me before I was sent off to elementary school in the mornings. She is such a good Okasan.

Anyway, back to boyfriend’s french toast….

French toast is not complicated. This is all it took:

– 4 slices white bread
– 2 eggs
– Brown sugar
– Cinnamon
– Vanilla extract
– Milk

He doesn’t do measurements either. He just mixed in two eggs with some milk, brown sugar, cinnamon, a drop or two of vanilla extract and called it good. Dip each slice of bread into the mixture so its well coated and then cook in a well-buttered pan.

Because he seriously does kill at making french toast, last year I bought him this cast iron pan that is the perfect french toast cooking size.

Then, top with butter and some syrup and eat up!

And now, finally, my turn…

The Girlfriend Rates It! 4. Really, my boyfriend is cooking me breakfast. What can I say? It’s definitely not burnt on the outside and soggy on the inside like when I try! And the perfect sweetness with the cinnamon and brown sugar.
