You know how “they” advise that, if you want to be fashionable, you should mix and match when selecting your outfit for the day? As in: mix and match expensive, fancy stuff with less expensive, less impressive stuff – so your outfit inspires interest and intrigue? So, maybe you’d wear a $10 T-shirt with a $50 scarf, mix and match the rest of the outfit, and top it off with $200 shoes and a $5 cocktail ring?
(I have yet to dress myself in every-day attire that totals $265. . . .)
This french toast is sort of like that outfit:
- Artisan bread = $75 skinny jeans
- Goat cheese = $180 shimmery blouse
- Center cut bacon = $60 bauble necklace
- Granny Smith apples = $ 10 earings
- Fresh scallions = $20 bangles
- Fresh ground pepper = $10 go-to body spray
- Aunt Jemima Maple Flavored syrup? = $20 adorable Payless shoes that make the outfit.
OK, so shoot me. I love Aunt Jemima syrup.
I don’t even own real maple syrup.
I do happen to own honey, agave, and corn syrup.
But no maple syrup.
Unless you count the tiny little maple leaf bottle I bought while visiting New Hampshire seven years ago, and I can’t even get the bottle open.
So I defaulted to my fave gal, Auntie J.
She pulled it off just like those adorable, cheap shoes.
Think about it: hot crunchy crust, chewy warm bread, creamy melting goat cheese, crisp-cooked salty bacon, tart green apples, savory scallions, and peppery. . .uh, pepper; all topped off with a delightfully sweet drizzle of “maple” syrup.
Yes, I think we both just murmured it out loud.
“Mmmmmmmm. . . .”
It’s OK. Sometimes I drool on my computer keyboard too. 😉
