hazelnut crusted french toast

before our recent trip to oregon,
dawn told me about the famous breakfasts
however, our timing was early evening,
not breakfast.
i read their online menu, and have had visions of
hazelnut crusted french toast ever since.

well, we made some today.
to make your own,
use your favorite french toast recipe
with this twist:
dredge the batter-soaked bread
in finely chopped hazelnuts before frying.

the lodge serves theirs with
marionberries & lemon curd,
although with chopped peaches & nectarines
and maple syrup, ours was delicious.

i think you could use any finely chopped nuts:
pecans, almonds, walnuts, macadamia nuts,
even peanuts {served with grape jelly}.

feeling it

waldorfish, that is.
{we bought the full lesson here}

i'm spending lots of mental energy
on how best to school ned.
we have homeschooled this year
using a wide variety of resources,
including curriculum from oak meadow.

waldorf education has always appealed to me.
i visited a waldorf school when i was 18
and thought i might like to
be a waldorf teacher someday.
maybe that day is now,
even if my class size is just 1.

i am loving waldorfish.
especially this and this.
