[Comments] (2) West Coast Breeze: I'm visiting my cousins, Susie and John, and their precious new baby beet (aka Maggie Sue) in Costa Mesa, CA. I'm enjoying the pace here, the quiet and focused energy. After all, what more important tasks do we all have but eat, sleep, cuddle? I'll neglect to include poop in that list, though there is a lot of that going on, too. My mom is kindly tending my boys (Dave included, since he is trying to keep up with his agressive dissertation timeline), so I can tend John and Susie. Maggie doesn't need much tending from me since her new parents are doing such a superb job.

I'm loving all the uninterrupted cooking time, too. Here is a recipe for coconut french toast. I made this yesterday for breakfast. It's from Susie's recipe collection. It is really great. I substituted coconut milk for the milk. You can imagine the delish. We won't mention the added saturated fat. We're nursing here. I also made half a batch. We don't need 14 french toasts!

Coconut French Toast

12 eggs

1 1/4 cup milk

2 tsp. sugar

1 tsp. cinnamon

1 tsp. vanilla

12 slices bread, preferably day old bread

1 7 oz. pack flaked coconut

In a large bowl (a square pyrex dish worked well for me), beat eggs. Then add milk, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla. add bread, a couple slices at a time. Let soak for 1 minute on each side. Coat both sides with coconut. Place on well greased baking sheets. Bake at 475 for 5 minutes per side, or until golden brown and cooked through.

Serve with syrup, fresh raspberries, diced mango and whipped cream for a tropical treat.

That DOES sound good! Can't wait to try it. Hope you enjoy your visit... I know from experience what a wonderful nurturing companion you are, so I'm sure your cousins will be saoking in the sunshine you bring with you too!
