Stuffed French Toast


Tonight’s amazing concoction: stuffed French Toast. Recipe stolen from Food Network.
One loaf challah bread or similar braided bread. Cut pockets in one side
Filling: 6oz softened cream cheese, almonds and raspberries (mix all together: I used food processor to chop my nuts and berries and then mixed it into the cream cheese.
Custard: 2 eggs, 3/4 cup half and half, 1tbsp sugar, 1tsp vanilla extract, cinnamon and nutmeg to taste

Once you have your filling mixed, put in a piping bag or create your own using a baggie. Just cut a corner out for easy squeezing. Then pipe filling into the bread. Skillet should be warm. I added butter to this to start with. Cook as you would normal French Toast, until both sides are golden. Remove from pan and enjoy!


Career meanderings

Would you rather have a steady job at a stationary location or a free lance type position with changing work and lots of travel involved?

I’m thinking very long term here and what I might want to do with my life after a few years experience. I have limited opportunities working where I am. If I want to continue this work I’ll need to leave my agency because there is no movement, advancement, or raises. We don’t have enrichment training or refresher sessions, we work independently with zero accountability to supervisors. I want to know I’m doing my best work but, with no oversight, how do I know what needs improvement? I’d like to get proper supervision and improve my performance.

I’m thinking of eventually gaining enough skills to be a private contractor. Has anyone here struck out on their own with a marketable skill set? But doing so would involve traveling wherever the cases are and setting all relevant people. Perhaps it’s all a dream.
