Plated + Served: On the Third Day of Christmas…


I don’t know why my true love insists on giving me fowl … today it is Three French Hens. Where I live we aren’t allowed to keep chickens, but it’s nice to see that some near-by suburbs are loosening up the restrictions.

But I digress.

I didn’t roast up Three French Hens… instead, I took Sistie’s advice and made Stuffed French Toast using three hen eggs. Pretty easy and it turned out pretty delicious, too.

Tomorrow, it’s more fowl… Four Calling Birds.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got to go have a chat with my true love. I’m beginning to think he really doesn’t know me as well as I thought he did!
