Wednesday- What's Cooking?

I HATE to cook! My husband works 4-5 Graves per week, so it's usually just ME and the Kiddos for Dinner. AND, at least half of those nights we are running around from activity to activity, so the last thing I want to do at the end of each day is spend hours in the kitchen. Therefore, I am ALWAYS looking for the easiest "prepare ahead of time" or crock-pot meal.

Here is what I made for dinner tonight. It was a HIT with all 4 kids. YAY!! That's hard to come by around here. Enjoy!

French Toast Casserole
1 long thing french bread, cut in slices (10oz)
3 cups milk
1/3 tsp. salt
8 large eggs
4 tsp. sugar
1 TBSP. vanilla
Grease 9x13 baking pan with butter. Arrange bread slices in one layer in pan. Beat together eggs, milk, sugar, salt and vanilla; pour over bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight (or throughout the day for dinner).

To bake, remove cover, dot with butter, and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Bake in pre-heated oven at 350 for 45-50 minutes or until bread is bubbly and lightly browned. Remove from oven and let stand for 5 minutes. Serve with syrup, yogurt or sour cream, and fresh fruit.

Thanks Liz for the Recipe!
