Ingredients: Yogurt, Water, Bread flour, Gluten, Salt, Yeast
This morning for breakfast I prepared French toast with my loaf of Yogurt Bread. It was simply fantastic! I love breakfast foods, but quite frequently I never seem to have time to make anything in the morning. To make my meal taste even better I used REAL maple syrup. If you have never used this before I highly recommend that you do, it does cost a bit more, but the taste is fantastic. I love being able to look at the ingredient list on a product and see just the basics. Only one ingredient listed here: maple syrup. Compare that to the other syrup in my cupboard whose ingredients include: high fructose corn syrup, cellulose gum, artificial flavor, sorbic acid, sodium benzoate, sulfer dioxide, color, and sodium citrate. I do not have any idea what half of those are, so I do believe I am now a fan of real maple syrup, especially when it is drizzled over Yogurt Bread French Toast on a cold January morning.
Today was the first day in my student teaching classroom and the kids were . . . let’s just say they were kids. I love how they get so excited over the smallest things and everything is a big and important event to them. I have several fans already, one student informed me after the first three hours that I was the best teacher ever. I have not even taught yet. When we went to the library they were curious about what books I liked to read and began asking me all sorts of questions. I left the library with Fabelhaven by Brandon Mull in my hand; it came highly recommended by my class. For lunch I ate a Tuna Fish Sandwich on Yogurt Bread. It was very scrumptious. I like the sweet taste that the yogurt gives to the bread. Yogurt Bread is perfect for sandwiches.
Tonight I have taken the left-over bread from the day and made Melba toast. - - - After a relationship breakup, Shirley MacLaine apparently ate her way through an entire box of Melba toast while sitting in a hotel in Stockholm.
