DH and GF brought us corned beef and potatoes for dinner. I don't have to cook!

Are you aware that French Toast is a 600-year-old medieval recipe?
Quote:
Harleian MS. 4016 (15th century)
80. Payn purdeuz. Take faire yolkes of eyren, and try hem fro the white,
and drawe hem thorgh a streynour; and then take salte, and caste thereto;
And then take manged brede or paynman, and kutte hit in leches; and then
take faire buttur, and clarefy hit, or elles take fressh grece and put
hit yn a faire pan, and make hit hote; And then wete the brede well there
in the yolkes of eyren, and then ley hit on the batur in the pan, whan
the buttur is al hote; And then whan hit is fried eyowe, take sugur
ynowe, and caste there-to whan hit is in the disshe, And so serve hit forth.
And the translation for those who don't speak Middle English:
Lost bread. Take fair yolks of eggs, and try (separate) them from the white, and draw them through a strainer* and then take salt and cast thereto. And then take manchet bread (white bread) and cut it in slices, and then take fair butter and clarify it, or else take fresh grease, and put it in a fair pan and make it hot. And then wet the bread well there in the yolks of eggs, and then lay it on the butter in the pan, when the butter is all hot; then the when it is fried enough, take sugar enough, and cast thereto when it is in the dish. And so serve it forth.

*All medieval recipes incorporating eggs call for this step. My own speculation is that since most if not all eggs were fertile, this strained out any unwanted birdie bits. I can remember my mother cracking eggs into a cup before she added them to anything, for much the same reason.

Tonight was a choice of cod fish or pork chops. Both have been thawed for a couple of days and DH kept changing his miind on what he wanted. He doesn't seem to realize that things need to thaw out.
