First Listen: Music From Baz Luhrmann's Film 'The Great Gatsby' : NPR -
The soundtrack to The Great Gatsby, Baz Luhrmann’s latest high-end refurbishing of a lived-in classic, doesn’t try to re-imagine Jazz Age tunes in a modern context. Instead, it attempts to transplant the sensibility of the 1920s to the hip-hop era, with genre-busting collaborations overseen by Jay-Z.
I haven’t even read The Great Gatsby, which I think makes me the worst recently completed English major ever, but this music is fucking phenomenal. They managed to do Jazz Age without Jazz. Truly mind-blowing.
Remember when I shared my recipe for easy microwave miso soup? Well this recipe for microwave french toast is almost as easy, and just as fast. Not as healthy, but probably more delicious. It’s a give and take, you know? Bonus: It’s better than the french toast I make on the stove. No, seriously. The coating gets distributed perfectly.
a few slices of bread (I used 3 slices, because my bread was very small, but if your bread is normal-sized you will probably only need 2)
3 Tablespoons milk (of any kind - I used almond)
cinnamon, to taste
a few drops vanilla extract
1. Cut bread into small cubes. Set aside.
2. In a small bowl, whisk together egg, milk, cinnamon, and vanilla.
3. Pour bread cubes into the bowl of coating. Stir around until all the bread is coated. (Or, if you’re as lazy as I am, put it all in tupperware, add the lid, and shake it for a few seconds)
4. Spoon the bread into a mug. Squish it down til it fits. Be careful not to pour the excess coating on top - it will pool in the bottom of the mug and create a kind of weird, sweet omelet.
5. Microwave on high for a few minutes. This is dependent on the microwave, but for me it took about two minutes. You will know it is done when you can push the bottom of the french toast mass to the side and see that it is stuck together with cooked egg.
6. Top with syrup and devour. My experience is that the syrup will saturate the top and pool in the bottom - it is the middle that you will have to pour syrup on mid-meal. Ah well. Not exactly a hardship.
Mmf, I made this twice today.
