Monday Morning Blues Calls For "Blueberry French Toast"

It rained all weekend here. When we left the restaurant tonight, a man walking to his car said, "Why does it always happen...rain all weekend and then Sunday night the sun comes out?"

This made think of "Monday Morning Blues." People are sad to see the weekend end knowing they're back to the work grind on Monday. There are things we can do lighten our moods, chase those Monday Blues away. One is to make Blueberry French Toast for breakfast, a favorite at our house. I think your family will love it too.

Here's the recipe:

Ingredients:
§  1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
§  1/4 cup maple syrup, divided
§  2 tablespoons blueberry preserves
§  16 slices French bread (1/2 inch thick)
§  2 eggs
§  1 cup 2% milk
§  2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
§  2 teaspoons vanilla extract
§  1/4 teaspoon salt

Sauce:
§  1 cup sugar
§  1 cup cold water
§  2 tablespoons cornstarch
§  1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
§  1 tablespoon butter

Preparation:
*  Beat the cream cheese, 2 tablespoons syrup and preserves in a small bowl. Spread over eight slices of bread; top with remaining bread.

*  Whisk the eggs, milk, flour, vanilla, salt and remaining syrup in a shallow bowl. Dip both sides of sandwiches into egg mixture.
Cook on a greased hot griddle until golden brown on both sides.

*  Combine the sugar, water and cornstarch until smooth in a small saucepan.
Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir for 3 minutes or until thickened. Stir in blueberries; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 8-10 minutes or until berries burst. Remove from heat; stir in butter. Serve with French toast. Yield: 8 servings (1-3/4 cups sauce).

Give it a try next Monday morning and let me know it it brightened your day. 


  
The book I'm promoting this month is SEASON, UNFORGETTABLE (yes, the heroine's name is Season.)

 
What Reviewers Are Saying . . .
"So much action. The plot kept winding around and had me guessing the whole second part of the book. This is my first book by this author. It was so good I plan to read more. I give this five BIG stars. I loved it so much!"

"Diablo made me laugh, cry and mostly, bite my fingernails down to the quick. I thoroughly enjoyed every nail-biting page, and award Season, Unforgettable five unforgettable stars!"

About Season, Unforgettable
Her land is not for sale, not even to the gorgeous man who saved her from a mountain lion attack. Both will discover that sometimes love blooms between enemies and sometimes it's even lethal.
