Strawberry Romaine Salad

May 7, 2012

Sometimes we all just need a little break from cooking, whether its after a long day of work, cleaning, or the dreaded yard work of spring. This salad goes great with a simple grilled chicken breast. Strawberries to me are spring! They are fresh, sweet and so good tossed with this salad!

To Die for French Toast

May 6, 2012

It's a cool Sunday morning here in small town Saskatchewan, and it looks like rain.

Yesterday we managed to finish all of our spring yard work (thanks to the mother-in-law), and we are sure feeling it today. Daniel is still sleeping and I'm so sleepy this morning I haven't managed to do much except this post and make breakfast for myself. Of course it helps when you already made it the night before and all you have to do is bake it!

My Mother-in-law has been  praising about this recipe for months, and I finally decided to give it a try. I had some Red River Bread I made last weekend and if it wasn't used this weekend it was going to go bad. And of course I added cinnamon and about 1/4 cup raisins to it. Whats french toast without cinnamon!
