Drain Unclogger

Drain Unclogger

Not a recipe for food, but it is a simple, quick remedy for a clogged drain.

1 cup baking soda
1 cup vinegar
1 pot of boiling water

Step 1 – Put the DRY baking soda down the drain.

Step 2 – Pour vinegar down the drain after the baking soda. Be sure to cover the drain immediately afterwards with a rag or plug, filling the hole completely so nothing can escape. The interaction of the two will cause a “mini volcano” that will bubble up and out of the drain..you want to keep it down.

Step 3 – Leave this concoction in the drain for about 30 minutes. While you are waiting, boil a tea kettle full of water.

Step 4 – After 30 minutes, remove the plug and slowly pour the HOT water down the drain.

Canadian-Style French Toast

Canadian-Style French Toast

French toast is such a good breakfast food! Fast, sweet, moist, filling, easy-to-make. This version is especially sweet and moist. Add a fried egg and bacon, fresh orange juice and coffee...fit for a king!

3 large eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup brown sugar (dark or light)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 loaf Texas toast (thickly sliced bread)

Beat eggs, milk, brown sugar and vanilla in a bowl large enough to accomodate a slice of bread.

Dip bread into mixture. In a frying pan with enough oil to cover bottom of pan, cook on medium heat, sauteing bread until golden brown, springing back in the middle.
