Forgetting Breakfast: Could Breakfast Be the Cure?

Vanilla Bean & Almond French Toast

“Vanilla Bean & Almond French Toast” from The Naptime Chef

I really want to try using the crock pot for more than soups because sometimes I feel like it needs to pull its weight around the kitchen a little more.  Also, I’ve been forgetting to eat breakfast a lot with needing sleep and trying to remember to bring my bag to work and wearing appropriate shoes for the weather. I feel like having something like this would definitely remind me to eat in the morning and that would make my day so much better.

When I started searching for recipes that I felt would actually make me want to make them I found a few. The accompanying photos however…. Not so much. Until I found this one: “Slow-Cooker Week: Vanilla Bean & Almond French Toast {Powernap} | The Naptime Chef

Last night I got my self together enough to make cornbread from memory. I think I got the temperature wrong, though. This recipe makes a rather dry and crumbly cornbread that is good for serving with chili or stew. I happen to have chili for lunch today. If I can’t get a good breakfast I at least need there to be a proper lunch.

Cornbread: Simple enough to make that I did it practically asleep

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup Crisco or butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk

Instructions:

  1. Dump all ingredients into a bowl and mix until the shortening/butter isn’t in massive clumps. 
  2. Bake at 375 F for about 20 minutes.
