Actually, I did, thank you. I fell asleep at the computer. I woke up when my head hit the keyboard. So I went to bed and slept right through.

We buy french toast bread. It's pre-flavored with sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. SO then adds more stuff and makes french toast with it. Delicious. She cooks up a loaf at a time and freezes the cooked french toast in twos. Then we can just nuke it and add syrup.

Well, this morning I took out two slices and nuked them. Then I mixed some frozen blueberries with maple syrup and nuked that. Combined them and dug in. YUCCH!

She had made some low carb french toast with her lo carb bread and NO SUGAR. It really sucked so bad I didn't eat it. Now this is a two-pronged problem. First, I don't have the breakfast I wanted. Second, SO will be "miffed" that I ate her low carb bread.

  1. You were preparing it for her as a surprise breakfast.
  2. The cat, dog, bird or other pet ate it. while you weren't watching.
  3. You have no idea. You weren't home at the time.
I like her idea though of preparing it in advance. But doesn't the nuking make the bread soggy and tough? I have never found breaded items to do well in the zapper.

You have to be careful when microwaving breads. Go too long and it's ruined. Just the right time and it's soft and warm. After all, it's french toast, it gets covered by hot syrup before you eat it.

You could offer to give back what you actually ate...course, she'll have to wait a bit.

I think she's untrainable. I don't know how many times I've asked her to label EVERYTHING that goes into the freezer.
