So Good Banana French Toast by Christian

On Saturday we made banana french toast and it was good.  Let me show you the pictures of how we made it.

First we got the bread ready and the banana mixture

Then we put the bread in the banana mxiture

After it was cooked by my dad it looked really good with the strawberries.

This is me.  I couldn't wait to eat it.

My mom cut it in sticks to dip it in the syrup.  
It tasted like banana bread in a fantastic way!  
I will ask my mom to type the recipe.


  1. I am so proud of you Christian for doing a great job blogging. I will be sure to share the recipe!

  2. I am finally getting around to posting this recipe for Christian:

    1 egg white (or 1/4 cup egg substitute)
    1/4 cup skim milk
    1/2 tsp vanilla extract
    1/2 tsp ground cinnamon or nutmeg
    1 tsp sugar (we used splenda)

    1. Beat egg whites, milk, vanilla, cinnamon, sugar and banana in a blender until smooth. Pour into a shallow bowl.

    2. Dip each side of bread slices into egg mixture. Place into a nonstick skillet sprayed with cooking oil, over medium heat.

    3. Cook until each side is golden brown. Top with maple syrup and serve.

Aztec Blend

I was at the Bulk Barn last week and decided to try out one of their rice blends. It is Aztec Blend #1656. It includes colusari red rice, long grain brown rice, split peas, and amaranth. I had no idea what some of those ingredients were but figured anything's worth a try, right? When I got home I looked up colusari rice & amaranth. Colusari rice is a burgundy-colored chewy rice that has a light nutty-popcorn-like flavor and amaranth is actually an herb.

It was very simple to prepare & actually pretty good. The peas were a little crunchy which added nice texture. I was surprised that both kids really liked it.

Banna-Nutella Tortilla Wrap

While standing in the grocery store line last week I was flipping through a cooking magazine and came across this idea.  I thought it was the perfect after school surprise for Christian.

First I spread the nutella on a tortilla.

Then I put a peeled banana on it.

Rolled it up...

...and it was ready to eat.

Christian shared it with his little brother and they both gobbled it up.  A little messy... for Alexander especially, but worth it.

Tricolor Thai Salad with Zucchini & Yellow Squash

We love zucchini and yellow squash however we've ever only cooked them.  We've cooked them in butter, cooked them with canned tomatoes, and grilled them, but raw?  I was unsure about making a salad with them raw, but was willing to give it a try. So, I cut half a bell pepper, half a zucchini, half a yellow squash into matchstick pieces, 1/2 tablespoon of chopped mint and chopped half a teaspoon of cilantro. If you like cilantro you could probably add more.

The dressing recipe that I had called for rice vinegar, but I didn't check before I went grocery shopping - I had none! A quick google search and I learned to use white wine vinegar as a substitute. Also, I needed chili garlic paste. I only had straight up chili paste so I added some minced garlic to the dressing instead.
Mixed it all together and stuck it in the fridge until supper.
The bright colors made the salad very appealing to the eye and it taste so nice and fresh.  The little hint of mint here and there was yumm…
