This hardly qualifies as a "nueva" recipe, but it is one of those Hayes-Boh staples that the rest of the world should know about. And of course there is a little story. Last night I was wondering -- hoping -- if today there might be a pancake breakfast. As we wrote just about a year ago, we love these local fund-raisers that put us in touch with neighbors and support good causes near and far.
This morning over our morning coffee I reported -- and lamented -- that my late-night perusal of local news sources revealed that my hopes had been misplaced. And our kitchen was too full of wine bottles -- we are hoping to bottle our first batch later today and need thirty sanitized bottles -- to even contemplate my own famous pancakes.
Pam saved the day by offering to make French toast. We have published a few variations on this throughout our blog, but today she whipped up one of our old favorites. Each serving consists of two slices of cinnamon-raisin bread, held together with cream cheese. This is dipped in the egg/milk mixture and cooked like a very thick piece of French toast. It is quick and just delicious!
