Blackberry Syrup

I have been so busy the last few days that I did not notice until today that I posted that you would know your strata is done when it no longer giggles.  That made me jiggle all morning.

I was still working on my shelter homework.  When you get a huge garbage bag filled with bread, you need to work fast.  It's already stale and you have to use it before the mold sets in.

So, I made more French toast.

And blackberry syrup.

150 pieces of  French toast.

I know cause I counted!

And endless olive/cheese bread.

I know this sounds crazy but every time I drop these huge amounts of food off at the shelter, I can't believe that when I walk in the next day there is no sign that it was ever  there.  I guess I always expect to see leftovers!

I put maple syrup on French toasts. I know I am repeating myself, but te cheese and olive bread you make reminds me of the one I used to buy in Montreal. Gosh the memories.
Unfortunately it means there are too many homeless people there that need feeding. BUT it also means your food is so good it doesn't warrant leftovers. They just gobble it up.

left overs,,, from your food!!!!!!
I doubt you will ever ever find left overs of anything you bring, those people at the shelter are eating gourmet recipes, that syrup sounds heavenly, I LOVE black berries,
how could there be left-overs, of your fabulous food?!? no way!!!!!!!!!!!
people who have known consistent hunger, and for years could not be sure of their next meal, they do not waste food.

good job jaz.

You are a true blessing! Great way to use that stale bread.

What? I mean how can that be wrong, you don't want it giggling right? makes sense to me ;)

That's a lot of work and a lot of good stuff, that syrup has me drooling. I highly doubt there is even a trace of a crumb left, let alone leftovers! I'm sure everyone just devours this good food made with lots of TLC.

I am sure they love your creativity.

We will be putting in a berry garden this year so next year I should have blackberries!
