Cinnamon Toast

I am pleased to announce that cinnamon toast is not nearly as hard to make in Mongolia as french toast. All you need is bread, butter, and cinnamon and sugar mixed together. It is so easy in fact that I think I’m going to buy a huge bag of cinnamon the first chance I get and then make it the rest of my time here in Mongolia. The only catch is...I don’t think there is any cinnamon in Mongolia. I got my little packet from a current Volunteer, luckily. It’s crazy to me, but even though there is a Mongolian word for cinnamon which is “shonts”, my Mongolian host family had never heard of it, smelled it or tasted it before. The like it, but I think they still prefer to just eat sugar and butter on their bread. Pass me the cinnamon please.
