This, for Easter breakfast (at 2 PM), compliments of Kat:
- Vanilla extract
- White bread
- Honey Bunches of Oats or similar cereal (preferably caramel/vanilla flavor), crushed with a rolling pin in a Ziploc bag
Beat eggs with vanilla, nutmeg and milk. Place cereal in flat pie pan.
Dip bread in egg mixture.
Dip egged bread in crushed cereal, coating additionally as necessary.
Place cereal-coated bread in pre-heated 325-degree frying pan.
Admire the beauty; anticipate the flavor.
Enjoy Easter breakfast at 2 PM (OK, fine – Easter BRUNCH!).
Then clean up, laze about for a few hours, and head into Seattle for the traditional family Easter dinner at… the Spaghetti Factory!
Why would the Spaghetti Factory be a place for Easter dinner, you ask?
Welllll…. many years ago, when the kids were small, we went to “the cousins” house on Bainbridge Island for Easter brunch. By the time we got off the ferry that evening, we were all hungry again, and drove around downtown looking for a place to grab some quick dinner. We drove past our favorite (but always-crowded) restaurant, Spaghetti Factory and noticed unusually few cars in the lot, so we ventured in. NO wait! We had a marvelous time that Easter and ever since then, going back for a no-wait Easter dinner at the Spaghetti Factory has been tradition! Elisabeth and CJ are meeting us there in a few hours and if everyone will put up with my incessant picture taking, I might post a family photo later today. However, if I’m greeted by a chorus of “Mooooooom! No more pictures! Geeeeze!” …well, then we’re out of luck.
