more cooking.

as promised! last night’s chocolate strawberry shortcake. Too much grand marnier for Sara (ok for me!) – when we made the strawberry topping, we forgot we’d halved the strawberries, and used the remaining ingredients at “full strength”… two tablespoons of grand marnier instead of one. But still a keeper, I think, and Sara would definitely give it another try.

For tonight, the chocolate and zucchini tomato french toast. before…
…and after
(she’s not kidding when she says to keep an eye on the dish while you broil – this is only 3 of the called for 5 minutes!)

I’ll let you know if it tastes as good as it smells! I did make one modification to the recipe – had to increase the milk and eggs by half (to 6 eggs and 3/4 c. milk). Not sure if I had more bread? but the consistency seemed ok. The smell of parmesan is making my mouth water right this second. Thank goodness Marc just got home!

LOVING Water for Elephants (thank you, mom!) – read about half of it yesterday and looking very forward to continuing it.
