Cinnamon Toast & Today's Adventure

 This morning we decided to make cinnamon toast.
 This is no ordinary cinnamon toast! In fact, the pioneer woman tested multiple ways of making this, and this is her tried and true recipe that she swears by. Emily helped so much with this this morning. She actually helped me measure and pour into the bowl!

She helped mix, she helped spread the mixture on the toast. She stood back when I put it in the oven!
 She had no problem taste-testing our butter/cinnamon sugar mixture. YUM! Also, if your baking sheets look as used as ours, you're doing something right in my book!

Happiest baby ever. 
This cinnamon toast is perfect for one adult and one or two kids, or just one adult 
if you're getting crazy! 
It's buttery, sweet, a bit salty, and it practically melts in your mouth.

Serves: One adult and two kids, or two adults. Four pieces of cinnamon toast.

4 slices Bread
1/4 stick salted butter, softened
1/4 cup sugar 
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract 
Pinch of ground nutmeg

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Smash softened butter with a fork. Dump in sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and nutmeg. 
Stir to completely combine.

Spread on slices of bread, covering the surface all the way to the edges.

Place toast on a baking sheet. Place baking sheet into the oven and bake for 10 minutes. 
Turn on the broiler and broil until golden brown and bubbling. Watch so it won't burn!

Remove from oven and cut slices.


After breakfast we went to North Point State Park where we walked barefoot on the beach (Emily’s idea) that was covered in driftwood. 
It was stunning and we had the entire place to ourselves. 
The water was a bit rough because of the coming storms, but that didn’t bother us one bit. 
It was fun picking up sticks, looking at bugs, and exploring the area with a fantastic breeze. 
It couldn’t have been a better morning. We saw a snake as we were walking back from the giant pier. Emily decided she wanted to call her daddy and tell him about the snake, so we did.

Enjoy the photos!
