Today's project was French Toast. I'll share my recipe for french toast on Tuesday next week, but french toast has been a LIFE SAVER during this pregnancy. A couple months ago I discovered that french toast can be made in advance and frozen. I was so excited--though I did feel a little silly for not thinking of it before!! Now I can have a high protein meal for breakfast, and not spend the time making it (or cleaning it up). Perfect!

I'd had in my head that I was going to store the french toast in the original loaf bag, protected by aluminum foil or something along that line. However, four slices (a meal for our family of 2) fit perfectly into a quart ziplock. That seemed simpler to store and use, so I made three baggies for the three meals.
Just as a note: My plan of having frozen fruit to substitute for ice cream cravings is working wonderfully. Last night my hubby got some ice cream for dessert after dinner. I wasn't craving ice cream, but did like the sound of dessert. I decided to eat one of the snack bags of grapes that I made up my first freezer cooking day to see if that sufficed. After finishing off my grapes I didn't feel any desire for ice cream. Score one for healthy treats!
