French Toast Waffles!

image

The 2 on the left look a little sad because they were made with my 35 calorie/slice bread. It makes a sad looking little waffle toast 😉 lol

So last night, I had this genius idea. And this morning my wonderful hubby made them for us! French Toast Waffles! 😀 Just like french toast, but no flipping! And no pan! Materials: Waffle iron, fork Ingredients: Nonstick cooking spray, eggs, bread. The ratio hubby likes to use 1 egg to 1 piece of bread Instructions: Preheat waffle iron. Scramble 1 egg. Dip 1 piece of bread into the egg. Flip it over and let the other side soak up the rest of the egg. Spray the waffle iron with the nonstick spray and put the egg soaked bread into a waffle space. If your waffle iron holds 2 waffles, work fast and get another ready and put it in the other space before you close it. Let it(them) cook in the closed device for about 1 or 2 minutes before opening to check. If they are a nice golden brown then remove them. If they are still yellow and eggy, then close it and let them cook a little longer. Then just serve with your favorite waffle or french toast toppers. My daughter likes them slathered with peanut butter and then drizzled with syrup. I like that way too, but to limit calories, I eat them like hubby does, just a bit of syrup drizzeled on top. 🙂

Sharpie Mugs!

I have looked over many blogs about this and received tips from fans of “Tara Creates” my craft community page on Facebook. So with very little planning and next to no supplies, I decided to give it a go 😉 Here’s to hoping this works out, otherwise, all I have for hubby’s Vday gift is a tube of green apple chapstick. Lol.

Materials: 1 ceramic mug that I got from Walmart for $1.75 yesterday
1 black Sharpie paint marker that to my horror, I located in my daughter’s jacket pocket the other day (I thought it was gone forever)
1 red regular Sharpie marker (because the only other Paint one I have is neon green)
A bit of tape
A piece of notebook paper

What I did: Preheated the oven to 350 degrees. At the last minute, I finally decided what I would write on the mug.. a fragment of a Pink Floyd song “…swimming in a fishbowl, year after year.” I cut a strip of notebook paper and made sure it would fit on the area intended for the quote. I wrote the quote on the paper using the red sharpie, because I was unsure if there would be enough in the paint one after my daughter had hijacked it. I taped the paper to the top of the cup directly above the area for the intended lettering. Then I used the paint marker and wrote the quote. Next, I practiced the fish and hearts a few times on paper before adding them. Lastly, I freehanded a little note opposite the fish then stuck the cup in the oven on a baking sheet and set the timer for 30 minutes. Subsequently, the timer just dinged! Now I will open the oven and let it cool until all the heat is out.. hopefully before hubby gets home from work it will be cool enough to close so he doesn’t look in there and see it before tomorrow! 🙂 I can’t think of anywhere else to let it cool, and I don’t need the oven tonight, so fingers crossed, this should work! Lol 🙂

**UPDATE**
After 3 days of use and handwashing, the lettering has a bit of scratching. I am so disappointed!! I will continue to search for an easy way to decorate mugs, because I had all sorts of future plans for this project! Keep an eye out for my progress… :D”
