Five on Friday!

Happy Valentine’s Day! I’m linking up with Darci and friends for Five on Friday!

I started writing this post before I saw the Five on Friday blogger challenge to post about baby Teddy and to raise awareness about Menkes Syndrome.  Click here for more information and to see how you can help raise awareness.  Social media is a very powerful tool. I hadn’t heard about Menkes Syndrome until recently, after reading a story about Teddy.

{1} Banana bread French toast! Yum! I have been wanting to make French toast using banana bread or pumpkin bread, but by the time I think about it, the bread is all gone! I finally had some leftover banana bread made with mini chocolate chips, so I decided to make French toast out of it. You use the regular egg, milk, cinnamon, vanilla mixture and let the bread soak for a minute or two. Then put it in a frying pan and cook.  So delicious!

{2} I love the Pioneer Woman, and here’s a great recipe from her! This is a bagel and cream cheese French toast that I made last weekend when my in-laws were visiting.  So yummy and easy but very rich-full of bagels, cream cheese, milk, and cheese.

{3} Riding bikes in the house! We’re so ready for springtime! It’s been a long, long winter!

{4} Snow, snow, and more snow! I hope this is the last snow this winter. We have more than a foot of snow and will be snowed in for a few days! Luckily, our farmer neighbors plowed our driveway for us yesterday (after this pic was taken). We were off school yesterday and are off again today. That means we will be going to school on Memorial Day and adding another day on to our school year in June.  Boo:(

{5} What a thoughtful Valentine’s gift from Mimi and Grandaddy! A package arrived from Amazon the other day, and we were trying to hold out until today to open it, but we had major cabin fever yesterday and decided to see what was in it! So fun! Two great books and some animal stampers and paper.  Thanks, Mimi and Grandaddy!

  1. Glad to find your blog. Both of those recipes look delish. You are probably sick of the snow, but that looks gorgeous! Not something we get to see a lot of in Texas. Happy Friday!
