Sticky Bun French Toast

This sinfully delicious breakfast treat makes use of the odd sticky bun that invariably go stale before you eat the entire package.

023

Start by making your typical French Toast egg mixture, using 1 egg, 1/2 cup milk (or Almondmilk), a generous sprinkle of cinnamon, and a TBSP of maple syrup. Whisk to combine.

027

Next slice just the very bottom of the sticky bun off using a sharp, serrated knife.

029

Soak bun in egg mixture for a minute or two. Be sure to turn the bun on its sides as well to get the french toast mixture on all edges.

030

Place in a non-stick pan with 2 TBSP melted butter that is simmering on med-low heat. Once you place the buns in the pan do not move them, as this will only cause them to break.

031

after a minute or three, place an additional TBSP butter into the pan and roll pan to allow butter to reach all sides of the buns. You can also place a small dab or butter on top of each bun. Drizzle buns with KARO Dark Corn Syrup to taste (I usually use at least a TBSP or 2). Cook for another minute or two until the bun is soft and heated through.

034

Enjoy with a hot cup of tea!

Spectacle of Heaven

“The Cosmos is all that is or was or ever will be. Our feeblest contemplations of the Cosmos stir us — there is a tingling in the spine, a catch in the voice, a faint sensation, as if a distant memory, of falling from a height. We know we are approaching the greatest of mysteries.”
― Carl Sagan

.

Infinite Splendor

In Majestic Miniature,

Breathless Wonder

Of Love, Ever Sure,

Delicate Harmony

In Fleeting Serenity,

Spectacle of Heaven

Abiding in Me.

.

“The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of starstuff.”
― Carl Sagan

He Sleeps

He sleeps

He Sleeps

In Stillness, Like a Dream Breathing;

Captivating my Every Sense with Beauty,

like the Stars of Night,

He Sleeps;

Angel motionless Upon a pillow,

So Enchanting, I dare not close my eyes

Lest I miss one Single Moment while

He Sleeps.

Dark Alley

When all the world is closing in and fear and doubt hang like rhapsody in enigmatic terror, life becomes a whirlwind that can easily lead you, twisting and turning, down the wrong alleyways; stumbling into darkness even before realizing. Labyrinth of confusion; darkness leading into darkness, grasping and pulling at your legs, tripping you, entwining you, making you stumble, making you fall. Uncertainty follows close on confusion’s heels, making each step more baffling than the last, as you try to see in the dimness, seeking a way out, but paradoxical conundrum leads down unfamiliar avenues and before you realize your mistake, you find yourself entirely lost.

Alone in the murk of restive passages and upon unhallowed ground, you creep in bitter incongruity; as the enemy closes in on all sides, taunting. Two choices face you blatantly: Hide yourself in the unsavory undergrowth or call out to Me. Villains clamor on both sides, seeking exploitation of rash imprudence, derision sharp and caustic, yet tempting intrepidity calls from the shadowy wilderness, harkening to your brazen boldness until you follow.

Lavish wonders, full of blasphemy; delicious alchemy, wrought with irreverence, toying with your immortal spirit, tattering robes of golden silk spun for you alone as Hades breathes contagion. Willing transgression, mortal suffering breeds contempt and blame, worse than any torture, more bitter than arsenic. Worthless, reckless, piteous fool; unfit, ungrateful, and filled with greed, O listen not to your own accusing! Filled with deceit your condemnation is, standing against My every desire to Draw you close, to Lift you up out of the pit of despair into which you’ve fallen, blocking every Loving Blessing I long with all My Heart to Bestow.

Turn not aside from Me in sorrow or in guilt. Look not into the darkness seeking sanctuary when I stand waiting, Arms Outstretched, to Hold you, to Heal you, to Restore you. This may blighted perplexity seem to tarnished thought and clouded sight; yet in your sorrow, lift your head and see Me standing ever near. No change required; no costly alteration needed; no sacrifice too vast to bear, for I have already Given All that is necessary.

All I ask of you is this: Love Me. Trust Me. Walk with Me one single mile and Let Me show you all the Blessings and Bounty I hold reserved for you alone.

Friday Fantasy – Throne and Crown

Throne and Crown

‘Bide the Hour when Crimson Fades,

Beguiled in Gilded, Russet tones,

Where All the Gentry stoop in Reverence,

While Autumn Ascends her Jocund Throne.

Golden Auburn her Silken hair,

Royal Red her Velvet Gown,

Abundance from her Smile, Gleaming,

When Autumn Wears her Radiant Crown.

Blushing Splendor

In the Dappled Light of Ruddy Autumn,

Rich in Russet, Red and Gold,

The Queen of the Harvest Gently Rides,

Transforming the Verdant wold.

With Gilded Glory Strewn from her hand

To Kiss the Apple, Sweet and Tender;

Summer’s Endeavor Now Unfolds,

All the Season’s Blushing Splendor.

September Melodies

September Melodies are Gently Gleaming,
In Resplendent Slants of Shimmering Light,
Through Silken Tapestries of tiny souls, Weaving,
By Diamondesque water’s ‘plashing sight.
Delving into the Realms of Wonder,
Where Honeyed wine Tempts Rosy Lips,
Dappled sunlight spilling over,
While Artist Paints and Poet Quips.
Beyond the Summer’s Hazy Glower,
Before Bleak Winter’s Frozen Grasp,
Autumn in Majesty Flowers;
And Smiles Warmly, while my hand she Clasps.

All that Is

All that is Beautiful rushes in synchronicity to You;

All that is Wondrous, encircles You as Divinity;

All that is Marvelous Kneels before You in Awe;

All that is Splendid Reveals Your Grace and Glory.

Magnify my Love, That I should Ever Seek You;

Touch my Heart with Blessing I may Share;

Spill over from my Heart with Words Unending,

That All my Love should Ever Praise You.
