Egg bread is easy to make, it is enriched with eggs and butter. Perfect for sandwiches or French toast.
I think I spent most of the day in my kitchen which is something I love to do, well all except for the clean up and no one can mess up a kitchen like me. LOL…. one day I will show you. My mom always said I had to dirty every dish in the kitchen or I wasn’t done cooking. Today I believe that is true. I have ran my dishwasher twice and still washed dishes in the sink. Oh yeah and right now there is still a sink full of dishes out there.
I started out making some pumpkin butter in the crockpot which is still not done. For the first 4 hours I thought it was on Low but it was actually on warm which doesn’t cook it at all. I really need to keep reading glasses in the kitchen. It is one of the joys of getting old, not being able to read what you once could and still thinking you can. From there I went to a Roasted Pumpkin Cheesecake Flan which is in the refrigerator. Then I whipped up a batch of my moms egg bread which I modified slightly as her recipe called for carnation milk and I didn’t want to use it so I used milk instead. Her recipe will make 2 loaves but I decided to make a version of a recipe I saw in the Food Network’s magazine for a Herbed Monkey Bread with half of the dough. Then there was still dinner to make! A simple braised kielbasa, cabbage and potato was ready in less than an hour.
Now I am ready for a good night of TV, I sure hope something good is on.

- Mom's Method:
