Gloomy Bear and Pity Boy Costumes

   This past Halloween; these were my first attempts to make costumes.  
   Better than expected despite the flaws.
   They were made out of papier-mache, felt, and fleece.

Start your day off right w/French toast topped w/caramel apples & brown sugar glazed walnuts

My favs: sugar and bread!

Recipe: bread (any kind but I used thick white bread)
            vanilla extract
            powder sugar
            brown sugar
            caramel apple
            maple syrup

         Beat egg.  Then add cinnamon, nutmeg, a drop/two of vanilla extract, and a tsp of milk to egg mixture.  Beat until frothy.  Then soak bread in egg mixture.  Heat pan with butter.  When pan is hot add egg soaked bread.  Turn heat to medium low.  Cook until brown then flip and repeat.  In the meantime heat water with cinnamon in sauce pan.  When broiling add brown sugar.  Continue to heat the mixture until almost caramel consistency.  Then place chopped walnuts in mixture.  Set aside.  Place cooked French toast on plate and top with sliced caramel apples and brown sugar glazed walnuts.  Sprinkle powder sugar over the toast.  Serve with maple syrup on the side.
