Personal Notes:
I used to make this for my family on Saturday or Sunday mornings as the children were growing up. Sometimes we even had it for supper. This reminds me of my own childhood years, when Mom would make it for Dad and me. When I went to East Tennessee to visit my friend, Fr. Dan Whitman, I made this for breakfast at the Rectory. Unfortunately, I had to leave in a hurry to make my son, Ken's, football game in Nashville, so I left him with all the dishes!

If you want to make it fancy, sprinkle with powdered sugar. Otherwise, that really isn't necessary. The taste is great without it, but it does dress it up for a fancier presentation. Vanilla really makes it special. Try Haitian vanilla for a change. It is a little different but yummy!
