Where I work we have a few samples of our Spring 08 books to come... One of my fav is the French Toast.. So here is one of the recipes and you can also see more on our blog it is in my FRIENDS.

French Toast

Crunchy Graham Dipping SticksMakes 24 sticks
The sweet crunchy graham cracker coating will appeal to everyone in your family, young and old.
6 slices lightly toasted Texas-style toast (or other firm,
thick white bread)
1 cup heavy cream
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
9 graham crackers
Canola oil
Directions: Cut each bread slice lengthwise into four sticks. In a pie pan or other shallow pan, mix together the cream, eggs, vanilla and salt. Whirl the graham crackers in a food processor until they are fine crumbs. Spread graham cracker crumbs on a plate. Dip sticks, one by one, into egg mixture and then press into cracker crumbs, coating thoroughly. Heat a little oil in a small frying pan. Cover and cook sticks over medium heat 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until lightly browned. Cool until warm enough to handle. Serve with a side of syrup and use your fingers to dip.

The DRAMA starts

So Mattie is 10 years old.. that makes me feel way old, anyway she is in the fourth grade and WOW I can not believe how the DRAMA is out of control. I teach my kids to be friends with every one and no matter if they are mean to you still CTR (choose the right). So my Mattie is so sweet, and she has some friends that are nerdy and some that are the "popular kids" anyway she has some friends that tried telling her she will not be cool unless she has a boyfriend. I fought with her on this for EVER... finaly gave up and said "OK, have one and you will see how dumb it is and how it means nothing" so she did and she saw my point, so she told the kid no more and just to be friends.. SHE WAS MADE FUN OF, for it.. she was devastated and I really don't know what to tell her. Mattie is so mature for her age and so confident in her self, but yet with this one friend Kinzlee... ( I don't care for her) she is trouble... Now Kinzlee doesn't want to be Matties friend and is starting RUMORS!! OH MY GOSH the drama... I am not sure I will survive this...
