    We did/do too. The best part was the circle of bread, buttered and browned in the skillet. No runny yolk for me.

    Toad in the hole is a traditional English dish consisting of sausages in Yorkshire pudding batter, usually served with vegetables and onion gravy.

    I remember, way back in the stone age when I was in high school, in home-ec class we all had to make a different egg dish. Mine was Egg in a Basket. It's been one of my favorites ever since. But I don't think I've ever heard it called Toad in a Hole. (that sounds kind of nasty!)

    I wouldn't care what you called it as long as it tasted good!

    I took the leftover Tagine to school yesterday for lunch (lamb, stewed fruits, spices). 2 periods later I had to put a student in charge and rush to the bathroom. I guess those stewed fruits got me!

    My daughter goes back to college today, so I got to choose my last dinner. I chose freshly made pasta primavera. OMG it was so good.

    Gut: My mouth is watering after reading your posts! Yum!

    French toast is something I make often, and more so for dinner. Like mrd stated, I don't like it sweet either. I'll have a side of syrup for dipping. I seldom order it for breakfast, if I did I would specifically have to say no butter, no powered sugar just the french toast.

    I came back to say I made the kale with EVOO in the oven, sorry I can't find the original poster who suggested it, or if it was in this thread? but it was fabulous! It was like eating potatoe chips!

    I will be making this more often.

    It might have been I; I was one of them. Anyway, I'm glad you liked it! It's quickly become a favorite in our home.

    OK, need some ideas.

    Hubby has taken second job in the evenings, so he will be leaving here at 7:30 am and getting home around 11. I need to send food with him, but we don't have a thermos for hot stuff and really can't afford to buy one now (hence the second job and honestly, spending $10-15 on a thermos is really out of our budget). I am trying to figure out what besides sandwiches (and he is NOT going to eat salad) I can send with him for lunches and dinners).

    The ONE thing I thought of that might work and still feed us here at night (son-in-law works until 10 pm and he eats dinner when he gets home) is doing a pork roast in the microwave and shredding it for BBQ sandiwches.

    So my daughter and I are going to be the only ones home in the evenings.

    I am at a complete loss as to how to feed everyone without becoming a short order cook, making different things. I want to take the opportunity for the next few weeks to go back to eating lower calorie and healthier, but again, if I do that, I will be making that for me and daughter and still need to feed son-in-law and husband. Husband will not have access to a microwave.

    HELP!
