If professional relaxation was a sport, I tell ya I'd be a champ. We had the grandest time just chillin' for the past few days and I'm quite convinced that I need to go back. Like right now. We are also now convinced that we need a cute little puppy. All of that sweet little fuzziness and puppy breath stole our hearts. All of this relaxing has taken my work ethic and smashed it like a nasty spider on the bathroom tile. I've been furiously editing pictures all morning and daydreaming about sleeping on a pontoon boat. If you have the chance to spend a few days on a lake, pontooning, jet skiing, eating enormous amounts of delicious food, and otherwise just enjoying your little self, I highly recommend it. I also highly recommend the following recipe for Banana-stuffed french toast. Don't ya just love when something comes out just like you wanted?



Love, Ramsey's Banana-Stuffed French Toast:



Layer 1/2 of a loaf of Italian bread onto the bottom of a large, buttered baking dish. Spread with a mixture of 3 (highly ripened, brown) bananas, 2 teaspoons of cinnamon, 1 block of cream cheese, and 1/4 cup powdered sugar all smashed together. Layer on other 1/2 of bread. Whisk away at 6 eggs and 3/4 cup milk with a little cinnamon sprinkled in for good measure and pour all of that on top. Now stick your casserole in the oven at 350 and wait patiently until everything smells really nice and cinnamony and the egg is cooked. Serve with powdered sugar and warm syrup.



Now you should all go grab your darling aprons and make french toast and then crawl back in bed and enjoy it. Doctors orders.
Love,



Ramsey

Charisse said...

Wow! Looks like you had a dandy of a time. I just got back from vacation, myself and did a whole lot of nothing while away. Well, that's not true. I did a whole lot of family bonding and sight seeing. But there was nothing too scheduled or pressing to tend to, which was nice!!!
