French Toast

Quiet day at home for Eric and I. He's sitting out on the back porch reading a book right now. Good news . . . he's eating better since we came home, and he gained 3 pounds since yesterday! After PT yesterday, he asked if we could go to Sonic. I said sure, as I had planned on taking him there anyway. He asked if I'd split a burger with him. I said sure, as I didn't think he could eat a whole one. But after he finished his half, and I had already downed mine, he said he thought he could have eaten the whole thing. Yeah! Next time.

Here's what Andrew and I had for breakfast last Sunday at the Sellar's house. Darlene is practicing for later when she and Lacy own a B & B. This recipe is delicious. I'll have to make some for Eric and he'll add on another pound or two.

Darlene's Baked French Toast

Melt 1 stick butter
Add 1 c. brown sugar
2 T corn syrup.

Glad the appetite is back. The baked french toast sounds delicious. I will have to try that out the next time I have several people to feed. Trite as it sounds, "There is NO place like home." Enjoy the fresh outdoors, Eric. God's love is everywhere.
