Thursday’s Truth

Truth is I am tired today. This week I have practically moved from one house to another, gone to 4 appointments, one workshop, 2 playdates and been staying up late so I’m going to make this post brief. I have two simple recipes that anyone can whip up real quick.








Meme’s French Toast

This is my kids favorite every time they are in Houston they ask Meme for the “toast”.
8 to 10 pieces of sourdough or whole grain wheat bread sliced in ½
1 egg
3 t vanilla
3 t cinnamon
1 c almond milk or 1% organic milk
Earth Balance Spread or butter for pan
Toppings – sliced strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, chopped walnuts, pure maple syrup, Agave or honey.


Preheat griddle or nonstick pan. Beat eggs thoroughly, add milk, cinnamon, vanilla and stir. Dip bread in egg mixture and then put a thin slice of Earth Balance Spread in the pan for each slice. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Turn when brown adding another slice of Earth Balance Spread in pan.
Serve with toppings of choice berries, walnuts and a drizzle of pure maple syrup, agave or honey.









Parsnip Fries

Kids love fries and we try a new vegetable or at least a new vegetable recipe few times a month. This recipe was a hit and is so simple.

1 lb parsnips
1 T extra virgin olive oil
1 t ground cumin
1 t ground coriander
¼ t sea salt
Pepper, if desired

Preheat oven to 425.
Peal parsnips and cut into strips. Toss parsnips with oil and spices
Bake on greased baking sheet or on foil for 30-40 mins, turning every 15 mins, until brown and tender.

Sorry for the terrible picture I was in a hurry to serve those fries! Promise some good stuff to come : )
