Stylish, Stealthy & Healthy.


Baby Duckling and Sourdough French Toast

Oh hi.

Meet Ponce de Leon. He’s the newest addition to my little bro’s family.
Newest BFF to Magellan.

And teeniest, tiniest, sweetest little thing I’m pretty sure I’ve ever seen.

This picture is really just so you can completely understand how small and fluffy he is. Also now you know the truth that I usually don’t wash my hair or wear makeup on the weekends. Lucky Brandon!

Anyways, I spent most of the day Saturday at my little bro’s house (pictured above) for his wife’s birthday. It was nice spending some time with them, eating my weight in guacamole, and snuggling with that sweet little thing.

Also this sweet little thing.

Did your head just explode? I know, it was almost too much cuteness in one place to bear. Somehow I managed.

Other than making an embarrassing amount of cute baby/animal reaction noises this weekend, I also had a lovely evening with two of my best girls Friday night, including a box of wine (we keeps it classy) and a rousing game of American Idol karaoke. Then Brandon and I spent most of Sunday relaxing and catching up on Shameless. I actually made it to Church again this week for Palm Sunday, and I forgot that mass is a little longer than most. Coffee beforehand would have been a wise choice, but hey, it’s all a sacrifice for the big man.

To celebrate the fact that I stayed awake, I made one of my favorite breakfasts when I got home. One of the best things about this breakfast is it allows me to quote one of my favorite scenes from 40-Year-Old Virgin, which is always a good time.

That’s right. Some fraaaaaaaaaanch toast!

I picked up a loaf of sourdough at the grocery store this weekend and holy crap, I will never use any other kind of bread for french toast ever again. And obviously you need copious amounts of bacon alongside or what’s the point? #JessLaw

Sourdough French Toast
You’ll Need:
4 slices of sourdough bread
3 whole eggs
1 cup milk
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 T light brown sugar
T butter
Trader Joe’s sugar, chocolate & coffee bean grinder (optional)

Directions: Heat butter in a large skillet over med heat. Whisk together eggs, milk, cinnamon, vanilla and brown sugar in a large bowl or baking dish. Soak each piece of bread in the egg mixture for at least 30 seconds. Carefully lift coated bread with a slotted spatula and place on the skillet. Cook each side for about 5 minutes, or until crispy and golden brown. (I like mine a little more on the well-done side, so I always let it go an extra minute or two until it gets pretty dark.) Serve with maple syrup, or whipped cream and fresh strawberries. Sprinkle with a few cranks of the Trader Joe’s sugar, chocolate & coffee bean grinder if you are lucky enough to have one of these little gems!

So that’s it for me, friends. I hope you all had nice weekends! I only have three days of work this week, so maybe I’ll step it up and get back to blogging more than twice a week…. or I’ll spend my time getting a pedicure and buying way too many things at Costco. Either way.

Happy Monday!
