What's been going on?

What's been going on you ask?

Alot has been going on!

Things have been going wonderful at the Evans home. DJ is still going to Physical Therapy three times a week. He went from not being able to move his middle finger to now being able to slightly bend it. He's still unable to go back to work yet doctor's order but It has been a month since his surgery and I'm happy to report DJ is doing great!

As for myself as you all know I picked up a second job working part time for the Holidays. So far things have been great and work has been super busy. I'm still doing In home support service full time and also working hard at creating a party blog.
{here is the blog banner I created for my party blog}

Last week I tired to new recipes! One was Cap'n Crunch French Toast and the other was Cheddar Pepper Bacon wrapped Chicken. They were both delicious!

After being on a no-buy makeup for 2 years I finally brought myself some makeup. I'm proud of myself because before I couldn't even go a whole month without buying makeup but I learn what true dedications and putting my home and family needs before material things really means. Many of you might not know what a no-buy is but a no-buy is when you go a certain period of time without buy something that you really love. So I've been having a lot of fun playing back in my makeup!

I'm still trying to lose a few pounds even with Thanksgiving just around the corner. When I'm not at work I've been working out at home for at least an hour. I'm determined to shed some pounds.

Cap'n Crunch French Toast

I love french toast! I use to make it all the time but lately I haven't been in the mood to make it and I realize why. I got so tired of making the same ole french toast and I wanted to try something different.

 For months now I've been hearing so much buzz about Cap'n Crunch french toast made with real Cap'n Crunch cereal from a cafe called Blue Moon Cafe in Baltimore, MD. Everybody and there Mama talks about this french toast and since I can't get to Baltimore I decided to make it myself at home!

Cap'n Crunch French Toast

6 Eggs
5 tablespoons Sugar
2 cups Heavy Whipping Cream
1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 Butter
1 Box (16 ounce) Cap'n Crunch cereal
1 loaf of Texas Toast bread

1. Pour Cap'n Crunch into a ziplock bag and crush to a course meal, then pour into a 9x13 pan.

2. Combine egg, sugar, cream, vanilla, and cinnamon in a large bowl. It will have the consistency of a custard. 

3. Soak each slice of Texas toast into wet ingredients, 30 seconds each side. Be sure the edges are most.

4. After soaking each side of the toast in the wet ingredients then Dredge it into the Cap'n Crunch, make sure to lightly press onto each side, and around the crust. Then place on parchment paper until all slices are coated.

5. Heat 2 tbs. of butter in a large skillet, then gently place two slices at a time in the pan.

6. Cook for 3 minutes on each side!

Viola! You now have Cap'n Crunch French Toast

You can add fruit, whip cream, or powder sugar! Whatever you taste buds prefer :-)

{of course DJ's plate is the one with sausage. I'm not a fan of sausage! My plate is on the left.}

Princess didn't want any bananas or syrup just a little sprinkle of powder sugar and whip cream, She has no idea what she's missing! lol
