Improvisational Weekend Breakfasts

On Saturday or Sunday morning, I like to make pancakes or french toast with whatever ingredients I have lying around.

Sometimes it's apple cinnamon pancakes with honey ricotta.

Sometimes it's almond coconut pancakes with balsamic honey strawberry drizzle.

And sometimes it's Pumpkin Spice Wheat and Oatmeal Pancakes with banana and apple slices, topped with pumpkin cream cheese and pumpkin butter. (like whoa.)

This morning I have plums. 

But, first I need my tea.

Okay, onward.
I sliced 2 plums, and sauteed them in about 1 Tbsp or less of butter, then added a big Tbsp of honey.

For the French Toast, I soaked 2 pieces of wheat bread in a mixture of 1 egg, 1/4c milk, and a dash of vanilla extract, almond extract, and cinnamon. Oh, and I sprinkled in about 1 Tsp of ground almond meal for some added protein and flavor.

Grill up the french toast, top with sauteed plums and their sauce.

Then, drizzle a tiny bit of mini-syrup you snagged from the Bellagio hotel room service, just because you have it on hand, and the bottle is so dang cute.

Then, finish taking photos, start eating, and decide to sprinkle on a bit of unsweetened coconut.

Like I said. Improvise!

Happy Weekend!
So There.
