Friday 6th December 2019:
Christmas is pulled towards us as Rudolph and his mates negotiate the rooftops and my son Peter III, his wife Jan II and their two children Sierra and Laya follow and no doubt pass them as the family are to spend Christmas with me and Jan I.
Therefore, folks, I need to unwrap my thoughts about what little girls eat – or like to eat and still get their fill of nutritious and essential goodies to assist them to outdo their heroine Dolly Parton (or mine, Sophia Loren.). Sophia famously said “All you see is due to spaghetti” – (more on spaghetti later.)
So, dear follower of all things healthy, I share with you this childishly simple ‘Sierra and Laya Christmas Special’. (It’s an adaption of French Toast.)
* The bread’s made from wheat and seeds etc.
* The eggs are a packaged vitamin pill.
* The cheese and milk are calcium.
* Butter is better (in moderation).
* All the above combined taste terrific.
PS. Mind you they’ll get their Broccoli and Brussels Sprouts hit too.
HONEYED FRENCH TIOAST. 8 eggs; 50 ml milk; pinch of salt; 4 large doorstep slices of wholemeal seed bread; 1 tablespoon of butter; honey to serve; cinnamon to sprinkle; enough slices of tasty Cheddar cheese to lightly cover the bread.
Beat the eggs and milk together with a pinch of salt and pour into a wide, shallow dish.
Soak the bread slices in the egg mixture for at least 5 minutes making sure all the egg mixture is soaked up.
Melt the butter in a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Lay as many of the soaked bread slices in one layer in the pan as you can. You may have to cook them in batches.
Fry the bread for two or three minutes each side then lift them out of the pan and put them on a plate, drizzle them with honey and sprinkle with cinnamon.
Lay slices of tasty cheese over the lot and serve.
(Don’t grill the cheese.)
PS. I know the girls like blueberries and the adults tomatoes or maybe caperberries, so they could top the cheese!
