French Toast Cups with Fresh Fruit & Cream

Nonstick Cooking Spray
3 Eggs
1 Tablespoon (a splash) milk (eyeball it)
2 Teaspoons (about half a palmful) cinnamon
Dash of Vanilla extract, optional
Dash of Fresh Nutmeg, optional
8 Slices white or wheat Sandwich bread
1 pint fresh berries such as strawberries, blueberries, blackberries or raspberries
Whipped cream

Preheat oven to 375

Spray the inside of each cup of a 6-cup muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.

In a medium sized mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, cinnamon, vanilla and nutmeg. Cut a slit in the corner of each slice of bread from the middle of the slice to the edge.

Dip each slice of bread in the egg mixture then lightly press it into a cup of the muffin tin, overlapping the pieces where you cut the slit to make it fit into the cup without tearing.

Bake the french toast cups for 12 to 14 minutes, until they're light golden brown.

Allow the cups to cool slightly in the muffin tin before removing them. To serve, arrange the cups on a platter and fill with fresh fruit and top with whipped cream.

New dog pics..

It's been a while since I posted pics of the pooches.. So thought I would put a couple up for your viewing pleasure.
Times are tough and gas prices are a rip off. With the gas companies recording huge profits I wonder why they cant share the wealth? Makes me wonder why the gas prices are so darned high if they are making such a huge profit. The greedy butts. Diesel prices are also a problem. Ed is having a hard time of it lately. The fuel cost is eating into his paychecks badly. Not to mention his truck needs some work to help increase his fuel mileage. Right now I believe he is sitting at around 5mpg. With a good truck it should be I believe 6 to 7mpg. He is hoping to get the repairs done because other wise he can't afford to keep running it.
I have sent off and am waiting on my visitors record extension to come in the mail. I'm not too stressed about if they renew it or not. Lot of other things occupying my mind. We have moved our Wedding date back to the original date we had planned. August 8th of this year. I really liked the date 08/08/08.. hehe cute.
I don't know what we are going to be able to do for it. But I don't have a burning desire to have a big to-do. I already had the wedding I had dreamed of and well that didn't make the marriage last. So frankly I don't care much what we do. Am more concerned about our life before and after. Making a happy marriage is more important than a big ceremony and party.

Well thats about it tonight. Think I will go play some sims.
