Seems there is never an event but what someone discovers a new taste treat and wants the recipe. Maybe is there is space on this site we should start an Event Recipe Thread subtitle. Anyway - someone asked for the French Toast recipe - from the Apres event breakfast so here it is:
OverNight French Toast - 1 loaf French Bread, 5 eggs, 3/4 c milk, 1/4 Tsp baking powder, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 - 20 oz bag of frozen strawberries (I use a plastic container of sliced strawberries and I think it is about 16 oz), 4 ripe sliced bananas, 3/4 - 1 cup sugar, 1 tsp to 1 T apple pie spice or cinnamon. Cut loaf of bread into 8 or more thick slices. Combine eggs, milk, baking powder and vanilla. Pour mixture over bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight. (I do this in a heavy duty plastic gallon bag. It packs nicely in a frig, sailboat frig, cooler or ice chest.) In the morning combine frozen strawberries (I thaw them overnight), sliced bananas, sugar and spice. Put fruit mixture in greased baking dish, top with prepared bread. Sprinkle bread with additional sugar and cinnamon. Bake in a 450 degree oven for 20 - 25 minutes.
Also - I took a Pasta Salad to the Last Cache Bashe - here is that one.
Pasta Salad - 1 box of spinach pasta (I used curly), diced onions, diced peppers, some garlic, hand cut up tomatoes, 1 can of black beans (rinsed), 1 can of red kidney beans (rinsed) and a bottle of Hannaford Italian Dressing. All tossed in a 1 Gallon heavy duty zip top plastic bag. The vegetable quanity is to taste and looks.
