Get a closer look!
This French toast is amazing. It’s warm and soft and delicious! I’m currently looking forward to finishing this post so I can go into my fridge and grab some leftovers (to be honest, I took a break mid-post to have some)! It’s so yummy on it’s own that I don’t even use syrup when I eat it. The cinnamon and vanilla do the trick. It heats up really well too, so whatever you don’t finish can just go back in the fridge and be heated up in the microwave the next day! My mom made so much of this French toast so Grandma and I could have leftovers for a couple of days. It definitely beats eating at Daly’s for lunch and dinner every day of the week.
Potatoes are another important food for Easter brunch. Of course, we have to have potatoes! I feel like I’m always consuming potatoes in different forms (mostly French fries and mashed potatoes). My friend, Jen, and I agree that potatoes are definitely our favorite veggies. But then, I like mine with a ton of salt because I figure I ought to have one edible vice, and she likes hers plain. But either way, potatoes have to be on the menu for Easter brunch! They’re an essential breakfast food that is severely overlooked in many cases! They compliment eggs and bacon so well too. Poor potatoes.
Diced and baked and salted, potatoes are the best (actually, if we’re being technical here, my favorite form of potato is the mashed potato)! I piled so many of these onto my plate. Between these and the French toast, I was stuffed sufficiently quite quickly.
But what’s Easter without some candy? Every since I was a little kid, my mom always had our baskets filled with toys and candy. We also had a mini scavenger hunt to look for our baskets when we woke up in the morning. After a certain amount of years, we knew all of the hiding spots. I was never big on jellybeans, so when I realized I couldn’t have them, I wasn’t too heartbroken. Still, for those of you who like jellybeans, try Starburst’s jellybeans! It says gluten-free right on the packaging! And they’re pretty good too. I couldn’t help but nom on them all day because we had a little bowl of them out on the kitchen table.
We had so many gluten freebies that I can’t fit them all into one post! Next time I’ll be mentioning two more King Arthur Flour gluten-free mixes. I had such a great Easter! I have to thank my mom and grandma again for cooking so much food!
Here’s hoping you’ve all recovered from the food coma,
