Evidently soy milk does not agree with me. OMG, it's awful. It's either the soy milk or something has died in there.

Oh, get over yourself. We all do it.

I met a friend at Starbucks this morning and had a nice visit. Grande, non-fat, Cinnamon Dolce Lattes are yummy. It had been awhile since I'd had one, and it was really good. I really wanted a pastry or donut too, but I resisted.

Here is a recipe for you that I haven't tried yet. It came highly recommended. Get out your fat pants for this one. It's really obscene.

Fat Mama's French Toast

1 stick butter
2 cups brown sugar
2 tablespoons corn syrup or maple syrup
1/2 to 3/4 cup chopped pecans
Loaf of French Bread, cut in 1" slices or individual rolls (sourdough works well because of the firm texture)
2 cups milk
5 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
Cinnamon and granulated sugar to taste

In 13x8x2 baking dish, melt butter. (If you use a different size dish, this recipe is a little unpredictable, but still works out ok.) Add brown sugar and corn syrup or maple syrup to melted butter and mix well in baking dish. Sprinkle pecans on sugar/butter mixture.

Spread each slice (at least 1" thick) of French Bread heavily with cream cheese and place with cream cheese side down, on sugar/butter/pecan mixture in baking dish.

Mix together milk, eggs, and vanilla. Pour over the bread in the dish. Sprinkle cinnamon and granulated sugar to taste on top. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Next morning, bake in 375 degree oven for about 45-60 min until puffed and lightly browned. Remove from oven and cool slightly before serving. Dust lightly with confectioner's sugar and serve.

Now go directly to the nearest Emergency Room because you've really done it now. Your arteries should be completely clogged up right about the time you get there.
