Milk Toast

To say I was a sickly child is an understatement. One year I missed 87 days of school with earaches, bouts of tonsilitis, and respiratory infections. (I kept up my grades because a classmate brought me homework.) Whenever my throat was sore and I didn’t feel like eating, Mom would bring me a delicious treat – milk toast. It was sweet and went down smoothly, soothingly…This may seem like a rinky dink recipe, unworthy of a post, but it’s winter, a time when sore throats abound.

Recipe for the Week: Milk Toast

1 slice white bread, toasted and buttered
sugar and cinnamon
1/3 c. hot milk

Directions: Make a slice of sugar/cinnamon toast the way your child likes it. Cut it into bite size pieces and place in a bowl. Pour heated milk over it. Be prepared to repeat the process. 🙂

Note: Oddly enough, this only works with plain, cheap, white bread. It just seems to have the right texture and consistency. On the other hand, whether you use butter or margarine doesn’t make a difference.

Thought of the Week: Danny and I record our favorite TV shows and watch them at a later time in order to fast-forward through the commercials. It’s amazing how many commercials there are in the network and cable channels. Without commercials the hour-long shows only take about 40 minutes to watch.
