It’s off to Banff for me…

This afternoon Mr. Bean and I are heading out to Banff for his work Christmas Party. I’m pretty excited for Banff is such a cute town, except that it’s going to be bloody cold. There are lots of cute shops in Banff and there are two amazing candy stores: one for any type of candy you want and the other for the BEST fudge ever. Seriously, on our honeymoon we bought so much fudge from this place – it probably was the reason that I gained the weight I did.

But the party is a dinner, dance and an overnight stay at the Banff Park Lodge. (Not quite the Banff Springs Hotel, but that’s okay – and easier on our wallets, too!) This means that we get to dress up, so I’ll definitely be taking pictures for all of you! 🙂

To put ourselves in the holiday spirit, we had eggnog french toast, mandarin oranges and bacon for breakfast.


Eggnog French Toast

For every about 1/4 cup of eggnog, add one egg. You can also add some cinnamon/nutmeg if so desired. Pour into flat dish with sides (ie. plastic containers work great) and soak bread with egg mixture.  Cook in frying pan or on a griddle until egg is set. Serve with jam/syrup/marmalade/whatever you heart desires.
