Almond French Toast + Mango

Sorry I haven't posted in a few days...I haven't had much to blog about. OK so for breakfast this morning I decided to make my *drum roll please* Almond French Toast!!! why is this such a big deal you ask? because it's awesome. Basically it's like a normal french toast recipe, but veganized, and it has almond extract instead of vanilla! It also has orange zest, cinnamon, and flaxy goodness. I haven't yet found a good gluten-free bread recipe, so I buy Ener-g bread at the local health food store, and it's perfect for my french toast, because it soaks up the batter really good. Why is this also good you ask? Because then it's super flavorful.

And on the side I had some fresh mango.

On other news... my guinea pig is pregnant. Now before you go loco on me about how breeding is bad (I know...All our cats, dogs, pigs, ferrets, horse (the male at least) are also spayed/neutered), this isn't my fault. You see, I had a guinea pig, her name is Lera, and Lera was lonely. So I looked for another female guinea pig for Lera. Eventually I found an add in the paper for guinea pigs. Some people were breeding and selling them, but they were getting out of the business, so they were selling them off. That's how I got Lola. They assured me she hadn't been near any males. But now a month later, she has just been getting bigger and bigger. At first I thought she was eating too much, but then I started to wonder, could she be pregnant? And yes she is. I think she'll be having her babies soon, because if you feel her belly, you can actually feel the babies. I'm excited and nervous. I just hope that she doesn't have like...10 piglets or something. A few is ok (I'm planning on keeping them)

Stay tuned and I'll keep giving updates on her.
