Book Club.

We had book club this morning at a cabin east of Heber, it felt like a little girls getaway for the morning!  We read "The Uncommon Reader" by Alan Bennett.  It was a super short, simple novella about the Queen loving to read.  It thought it was really cute and made for a fun, light hearted discussion.
Monica hosted and made the most amazing stuffed french toast {I have learned that book club has lead me to read some really great books, but I have also collected some wonderful recipes over the years - this one will definitely be added to my breakfast collection}.

The Amazing Stuffed French Toast

Mix 1 package of softened cream cheese,
1/4 cup of powdered sugar,
chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans)

Spread between two pieces of bread (thick sliced bread)

Mix about 8 eggs,
1/4 cup milk,
and a little vanilla.

Dip bread "sandwiches" in egg mixture then in a mixture of crushed cornflakes and coconut.

Cook on griddle on medium heat {coconut will burn easily}.  Keep warm in an oven until you serve.

It is even more amazing when served with THIS syrup!

Thanks Monica for the fun book and the amazing french toast {the name says it all}.

Next we are reading "Beautiful Ruins" by Jess Walter.  

And, this book {"Wonder"} was highly recommended to me by a high school friend.  It just arrived at the library so I am going to try and read it between book club books.
