Sunday: Sleeping In, French Toast, and Reading

Daughter and I were up till past 2:00 a.m., talking and just enjoying being together.  So, this morning, we slept in and didn't wake up until almost 10:00 a.m.  That's the nice thing about Sundays - getting to sleep in.

French Toast

Another weekend/Sunday tradition is a cooked breakfast.  Usually, on weekdays, I don't cook breakfasts.  Instead, I take something like cereal or a sandwich and fruit to the office to eat later in the morning and daughter does the same, taking a cereal bar and fruit to campus with her. But on the weekends, I will make something for breakfast.

Today, I made us French toast, which is a favorite of ours.   It's an added bonus that it is also a very frugal breakfast, 4 slices of bread ($.99/loaf), 1 egg ($.99/doz.), about 1 cup of milk ($2.79/half gallon), a little butter or margarine (I used margarine, $.99/1 lb.; butter is more expensive at just over $3/lb.) for frying. 

After breakfast, daughter worked on her homework assignment and I read the library book I had brought with me: it's about the British discoverers of Buddhism in India, in the late 1700s and early 1800s. 

Later, I prepared lunch: rice, chicken curry, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and a cucumber salad.

In the evening, we went for a walk and stopped at the dollar store on the way back.  I bought 2 boxes of cereal and a packet of cookies and spent a total of $3.00.

It has been a very relaxed day, today, for me (not quite so relaxed for daughter as she had to finish writing her research paper and still has to review for a quiz).

Hope you've had a pleasant Sunday.  What would you make for a frugal Sunday breakfast?

    Love French toast...
    This past Sunday, I made a loaf of Cinnamon Raisin Bread in my bread machine on Saturday night.. SO , on Sunday morning, I sliced some of it, buttered it, and toasted it.. Sprinkled it with a light dusting of powdered sugar. We had that and a banana.. Really delicious breakfast.
    Found your blog from Blissfull and Domestic blog.. Have enjoyed reading.
