Chicken Lemon Pesto Soup (Recipe tweaked)

I can't get enough of this soup! I loved the taste of the Chicken Lemon sausage that I picked up at Marcello's Meats. At $12.50 for three sausages, it is a little rich for my budget (but it was oh so delicious!). I decided to take inspiration from Marcello's chicken lemon sausages and this is what I did. I made mini-chicken lemon meatballs. Our local grocery store sells ground chicken so I started there.

French Toast

There is nothing like starting the weekend with a good breakfast. French toast drizzled with maple syrup and cup of coffee.  

Day old gluten-free baguette 
(I used gluten-free hot dog buns from Lorenzo's)
Eggs
Milk
Cinnamon sugar
Butter

Slice the day old baguette about 1/2" thick.  Dip in egg and milk mixture and fry in a frying pan with butter. Easy Peasy!  

When the bread is a light golden colour turn over and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.   


This is a lovely maple syrup that I recently found at Costco.  


And coffee. Now why do people say they don't have time for breakfast?  

Happy eats!
