Today we had our second meeting of the book club. We talked about the book for exactly 0 minutes. Whoops. We did however pick our next book and have a fantastic breakfast. We picked The Secret Life of Cee Cee Wilkes by Diane Chamberlain. I read it last year and I could not put it down. Seriously, if you are looking for a good book that you will fly though I recommend this one hands down!
For breakfast I made:
I based the recipe for the French Toast Bake off of this recipe. I made some swaps to make it a little lower cal without changing the integrity of the dish. I don’t think anyone knew the difference!
4 tbsp melted margarine/butter
2 cans pillsbury cinnamon rolls
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup skim milk
3 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup sugar free syrup
1. Preheat oven to 375.
2. Pour melted butter into bottom of 13×9 pan.
3. Break each cinnamon roll into 4 pieces and arrange pieces evenly in dish. Put icing aside for later.
4. Combine all remaining ingredients in a bowl. Pour mixture over cinnamon roll pieces.
5. Bake 25ish minutes.
6. Microwave icings for 10 seconds and pour over the top.

You end up saving quite a few calories by making a few substitutions and no one will know the difference.
Super awesome bonus for the day. One of the girls from my book club was heading for a run and to go to the gym after book club so we went together. We did a nice 4 mile run ending at the gym where we did the Burpee Mania Workout. It is so much more fun and challenging when you go with a buddy!!
