Another snow day...

Outside my window this morning:

The stack of snow on the bench is all fresh snow.  We got hammered again.  School was dismissed at noon yesterday and cancelled today.  The temperature is below zero this morning and very high winds are expected by noon today.  We have kept most of the snow on the ground from all the previous snow storms of the winter, but the deck railings and bench had been blown clear of snow.  It is very still so far today, but I'm pretty sure this afternoon will look quite different.
This would have been a great winter to crawl in a cave and hibernate.  Wait...that's practically what I've done.  Stay home, make crafty things and bake fattening things. 
(I'm pretty sure we're not eating enough vegetables this winter.  I keep running out of flour, sugar and butter.)

Speaking of fattening things...
Here's my friend Kendra's recipe for baked french toast.  Yummy for lunch on a cold snowy day. 

Baked French Toast
12 slices bread
1 stick butter
1/2 - 2/3 c. brown sugar
8 eggs
1/2 c. milk
In a 9x13 inch pan, melt butter and brown sugar.  Layer bread on top of butter/sugar mixture.  Beat eggs and milk together. Pour over bread. Chill overnight and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
