Three inches of snow should not cause this kind of panic. It's the north. It's January.







We still have toilet paper, at least.

My mom just brought me the half of a peppermint Joe-Joe cookie that has the delicious cream on it and said, "Will you eat this for me?" In what universe would I not accept this offer???????

When she got home from work, she'd brought home groceries and I was helping her put away cans and I tried to put too many in my arms, as I do, and a can of corn banged into my arm and flew onto the carpet. (It hit me pretty hard for having such a short distance to travel - I'm icing my arm right now.) As it did, I cried out, "I'm not Gus-Gus! Nooooo!" My mom's response: "You ARE!" This comes from the mice in Disney's Cinderella: There's one scene where Gus is gathering up way too much chicken feed (maybe corn, actually?) and tucking it under his chin, and Lucifer the cat is rapidly approaching, so Jacque's all, "Gus-Gus! Gus-Gus! RUUUUCIFY!!!" So Gus-Gus goes running, and all the corn/whatever comes exploding out of his arms, knocking him in the chin as it goes. My mom always seems to be there when I pull a Gus-Gus.

Sooooo I have a bruise, but I got a cookie. Universe maintaining balance?

That's exactly what I said. I did complain to management, maybe something will actually happen this time.

The one thing that surprised me the most when this GA girl moved to CT was how everyone freaked out when it snowed. I expected it to be a lot more laid back since it happens every year (unless it was a blizzard), but boy was I wrong!

I really do think snow brings on the french toast craving.

They didn't freak out like that in Vermont. At all.

I tried to eat french toast recently. Again. It just doesn't agree with me. I end up not tasting anything or too much of something.

I've tried french toast a few times and just can't seem to get it like I know it should be, it's edible just not *the one*. It's always much better when I get it at a restaurant.

Do you like bread pudding?
Both essentially the same thing. Bread soaked in custard. Bread pudding is sweeter and often richer though, since French toast is usually served with something else (like that delicious honey and lemon Greek yogurt we used to serve with it).

Spring, you need a good sturdy bread (challah, panettone, brioche, good pan de mie) that has been left to stale for a few days, and then soaked thoroughly so it's completely custardy inside, with a good caramelized crust from slow even cooking.

I hate restaurant French Toast! I've complained almost every time I've had it while eating out. I usually add sugar and cinnamon to mine and for some reason that's not the norm. I find restaurant French Toast too blah.

I think the closest I came to liking french toast I made was when I used challah, but I don't think I let it dry out enough.

Good excuse to try again one weekend.

kayb, the only time I really ordered it was at a diner in our town when we lived in CT. It was made with challah and fan-tab-ulous. I'm not normally one to order breakfast when we are at a restaurant, but I'm sure glad I did!

I'm never super thrilled with my cooking, it always seems to taste better when someone else makes it.
