Grandma Party Thanks!

Thanks Everyone for coming out to the Grandma Party. We hope you all had a great time. I know we did! I would have to say this year has been the best so far! Casey and the Stardust gang worked their keisters off and did a wonderful job in organizing the event.

Since my camera decided to go on vacation (aka not working) on Sunday, I unfortunately, can't share any pictures, but instead I will share this yummy recipe that I prepared for my Mom and my Mother-in-Law over the Mother's Day weekend. Hope you enjoy it just as much as we did.

Overnight French Toast
Ok, so it is called, "Overnight French Toast" but I only had it sit for an hour, and it was just as YUM-EEEE!

INGREDIENTS
9 eggs
2 and 1/2 cups light cream
1/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons rum
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
24 (3/4 inch thick) slices French bread

DIRECTIONS
In a large bowl, beat eggs with a whisk. Mix in cream, sugar, rum, vanilla and cinnamon. Place the bread in a single layer in two lightly greased glass casserole dishes. Pour the egg mixture over the bread in each dish. Turn bread over to coat both sides. Cover and refrigerate overnight (or at least refrigerate for 30 minutes to an hour). Bake, uncovered, at 400 degrees F for 20-22 minutes or until golden.

TO SERVE
Makes about 10 servings. Serve with maple syrup, butter, and fresh berries.

This is so quick and easy, this will become the only way to prepare French Toast.
