"Snow Mountain will be closed tomorrow, Jan 7, due to snow. Yes, we are aware of the irony."
I've never been able to figure out why people in the South buy up all of the milk and bread on the shelves when there's a possiblity of snow in the forecast. Stock piling eggs and bread just never made any sense to me. On the contrary, I was at the store this weekend loading up on beans and tomatoes for gigantic batches of chili to help us stay warm during "winter" weather.???
This weekend, we became true Southerners. I bought chili ingredients AND a hearty supply of eggs and milk to bake plenty of Lemon Blueberry French Toast. These Southerners are onto something. It was sooo good. Warm French Toast and a cup of coffee = cold weather breakfast perfection.
5 cups French Bread
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
zest from 1 lemon
1 1/2 cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
pinch of salt
1 cup blueberries
1/4 cup butter
3 Tablespoons brown sugar
Cube bread and place in greased baking dish.
Combine eggs, sugar and cinnamon in mixer and whisk until light and frothy. (About 10 minutes)
Stir in fresh blueberries.
Stir together butter and brown sugar. Bring to a boil and cook and stir until thickened.
