Seriously Leon? And French Toast Monkey Bread!

We have just experienced a winter storm named Leon! Leon is a name of Greek origin meaning "LION". Well he came in like a lion, lingered like a kitty, caused havoc in some cajuns who really don't know how to deal with these winter-like conditions. But we survived Leon...we were prepared...we hunkered down with supplies that we normally stock up on for hurricanes. And we waited...for snow...or sneaux! But Leon said noooooo... but here's a little sleet and icy roads for ya! Thank you Leon, how kind of you! Our experiences with hurricane preparations served us well! We got this! South's home and we love it!
The extent of our ice...
Mighty impressive huh? 

Are you ready for spring? Yeah I thought so.

Here is a yummy French Toast Recipe for you to!!


 2 rolls of Pillsbury Crusty French Loaf
4 Eggs
1 cup of Milk
1 tbsp.  Vanilla Extract
1/2 cup Cinnamon/Sugar (whatever ratio you like)
1 cup Maple Syrup
A Bundt Pan (any baking dish will work)


Bake up the French Bread according to the package directions..set aside!
Cube the bread into approx.  1.5?  pieces and add them into a large bowl…
In a medium bowl mix the Milk, Eggs, Vanilla and Cinnamon Sugar until it’s smooth and custard-like. 
 Pour it over the bread cubes…
Let that soak for about 10 minutes, stirring to make sure it’s evenly coated.
Pour the Maple Syrup into the bottom of the Bundt Pan (or your baking dish)…
 Then top the Syrup with the Custard soaked French Bread and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes, or until it’s firm and bubbly!  Let it cool slightly…

Invert your serving platter onto the top and flip it out!  Serve and enjoy!
