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.

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

    Ingredients:
    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)

    Directions:
    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.

Asian Cabbage Mango Slaw

I saw this recipe and knew that we had to try it!  Actually, this recipe was my inspiration behind having an Asian-inspired BBQ meal.  The idea of mango in my slaw felt very summery to me and it was a great way to have a BBQ side without the calories of our typical mayo-based salads.

It was a pretty simple dish to make.  Below, you'll see everything tossed in the bowl.  FYI, I shredded the cabbage with a knife and the carrot with a box shredder. 

The marinade called for rice vinegar (which I didn't have), but I had just learned that I could sub with white wine vinegar. Mixed it all up and threw in some sesame seeds and it was ready.  I put it in the fridge for a few hours, but I could've just given it 15 minutes to let the flavors marinade a little.
