This Sunday: Make French Toast Nugget Skewers, Stain Glass Your Windows
Your Sunday morning plan:
This Sunday, celebrate summer with some BBQ-season-inspired french toast nugget kebabs designed with mucho kid appeal. Then, give one of your windows a funky stained glass treatment so sunlight can pour in with a magical, multi-coloured glow.
Kebabs amp up the fun factor of any meal. The beauty of a kebab is that you can get super creative with pairings,. Add some strawberries, banana slices, pineapple tidbits, bluberries, marshmallows, or gummie bears. The sky’s the limit. Kebabs are all about colour variation.
2 cups of bread, cut into 1 inch cubes
1 tsp vanilla
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup milk
Using a whisk, beat eggs, vanilla, cinnamon and milk together. Soak the bread cubes in the mixture, turning to coat evenly. Preheat skillet to med heat and spray with oil. Toss the nuggets in the pan in an even layer to let them become golden. Toss them around in the pan as if you’re stir frying.
Now, stick the nuggets on wood skewers, alternating with fruit and other treats. Serve with a bowl of maple syrup on the side for dipping fondue style.
This window spruce-up will let the sun cast a multi-coloured glow through the whole room all summer long. It’ll wash off with soap and water when your ready for it to be gone. Change your window decal with each season!
Tempera paint in different colours
Liquid dish detergent
Mixing bowls and stirrers
A small plastic squeeze bottle
Newspaper and painter tape
For each colour of paint you’re using, combine ¼ cup cornstarch, ¼ cup paint, and 1 teaspoon of dish detergent in a mixing bowl, stirring till smooth. Use a funnel to pour the black paint into the squeeze bottle.
Cover the floor under the window or door with newspaper, and with your paintbrushes, paint a picture directly on the window. After its dry, use the squeeze bottle to outline your drawing with black paint. This will give it a stained glass effect! You can be as detailed as you want.
When you’re ready to take it off, just use a spatula to scrape it off and wash away any residue with soapy water.
