would easily serve 3.
- 6 slices stale bread (left out overnight on a rack is best, 1/2 inch thick would be best if possible)
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup cream
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 3 teaspoons cinnamon
- 3 eggs
- large pinch of salt
preheat oven to 190C/370F.
beat eggs & salt, beat in milk & cream, beat in honey & cinnamon. strain/decant this mixture into a pan large enough to fit bread without squishing. soak bread in mixture, 30 seconds on each side. remove to a wire rack and let sit for at least a full minute before frying.
fry each side with a little butter until deep golden brown, and remove back to wire rack until entire batch is fried. place toasts into oven, either on rack or directly onto oven shelf for 5 minutes, before removing, and serving immediately with butter and maple syrup.
i am glad because i found some nice coffee.
i had a dream where i was in some kind of video game (unaware of genre or anything else) – where i had to gather large amounts of mashed potato in order to defeat/placate the final boss.
the icon for the potato kinda looked like a wooden spoon with some mashed potato on it.
i don’t remember anything else.
first new pc in years. paid for mostly by giving up smoking about 3 months ago.
it’s not absolutely top of the line, but it’ll actually run windows 7. though i plan on dual booting xp and some form of linux.
i’m going to be attempting to write my own 2d-skeletal-animation-library- i believe i’ve figured out the overall structure of things, and how to handle z-ordering (while i’m not sure it’s the most efficient way, it’s definitely simple to understand/implement).
with that in mind, i was vaguely leaning towards some kind of custom written file format to handle them, until i remembered reading about google’s protobuf (which is almost done building in MSYS at last), which will have the added advantage of being a piece of piss to expand on should i need to later. i look forward to starting to hack away at this.
i’ve also set up crossposting to LJ. *waves to LJ*
