A storm is coming! It may snow overnight! Did you hear the weather report? And if so, did you buy bread, milk and eggs? What’s everyone going to make with these items? This trio is always on the winter storm shopping list. Are you perhaps making, French Toast?!
How do you prepare for a storm and what do you do on a cold wintery day? We build a great fire and sip hot coffee or tea. We read, watch movies, and maybe do a little crafting or cooking! But make French Toast, probably not! We will wait and bake that for you when you visit!
Luckily our chickens have started laying again so we don’t have to pick up any eggs.
Isn’t it interesting, however that bread, eggs and milk are those staples that get us through a storm? We can certainly do a lot with eggs such as baking, frying, or even making a cake. And milk is certainly a wholesome ingredient. As for bread; always a staple. There is nothing is more essential on a cold day than a toasted cheese sandwich!
With a cold wintry day in mind, we are sharing a few favorite recipes with bread, eggs, and milk in mind. And yes, you can substitute gluten free bread or almond milk to any of these!
From our house to yours, stay warm and enjoy.
