My yummy lunch
My lunch today was soooo good I just had to share a photo with you. I made french toast out of leftover multigrain french bread that I sliced and left out over night to get good and stale. I had plenty of *real* maple syrup (not HFCS with brown color added). I also had leftover egg/milk mixture to soak the bread in and a bunch of strawberries that I really wanted to eat. I think because strawberries are in season now (at least in California), they have gotten cheaper in the past few weeks. I bought a four pound box from Costco for around five bucks. Since we bought the enormous box of strawberries, we've had strawberry shortcake, strawberry french toast, strawberry frappuccinos, and strawberry ice cream with strawberries on top. Yum!
As requested by my loyal reader Laura, I've also posted an "after" photo of Callie. Remember, she cut her bangs off a week or two ago so I had to take her in to see her stylist who "finished" Callie's cut. Her haircut reminds me a little bit of a monk, but as it grows out I'm sure it will improve. It takes all of my self control not to have the stylist cut the rest of it off, too. I do love how Callie looks with a pixie cut, but I'd like to let it grow a bit and see what happens. She is, after all, three years old and will be three and a half when she starts preschool next year. I can't force her, by giving her a baby haircut, to remain a baby forever.
