1st Friday Warrenton, May 3rd &
Warrenton Spring Festival, May 18th
Hello everyone! With the calendar finally turning to spring and mother nature obliging us with
some warmer weather, let's shed some clothing and head to the club for Brunch. Yes, for a
limited time The Club is open to the public for Sunday Brunch Buffet (reservations are required).
The following recipe, Strawberry Stuffed French Toast, is one of our regular and popular
items. However, if you can't make it out to join us, I have provided you with the procedure for
you to produce this tasty dish at home!
Cream Cheese, softened
1pint Strawberries, diced
into inch cubes
3oz powdered Sugar
1 tbsp Vanilla Extract
1oz Strawberry Sauce
pinch Salt
24 Slice White Sandwich
1tsp cinnamon
oz Jim Beam
1tsp Vanilla Extract
6 whole eggs
6 oz Half & Half
In a bowl combine and mix all the "filling" ingredients until even and well distributed. Spread
filling evenly over 12 slices of bread. Top each "sandwich" with another slice of bread.
In another bowl, mix cinnamon, Jim Beam and Vanilla Extract to create a smooth thin paste.
Water may be used in place of liquor. Add and mix the eggs and half and half. Add and mix
in sugar and the salt.
The "Sandwich" and batter can be prepared a day ahead to expedite this process when you
wish to cook them. Make sure they are both refrigerated.
To cook the French Toast, warm a griddle or large frying pan on
medium heat. Add enough vegetable oil and whole butter to barely
cover the bottom. Stir your batter then dip each "sandwich", one at
a time, into the batter and place onto your warm oiled pan. Add as
many sandwiches as your cooking surface will allow. Cook on each
side 2-3 minutes until a deep brown.
To serve cut sandwich in half, drizzle with strawberry sauce and
top with powdered sugar.
1 cup sugar
Pinch salt
Whole Butter
Vegetable Oil
Strawberry Sauce
Powdered Sugar

largest and most respected companies in the
industry in the Washington Metropolitan area.
Eric explains that one of the company's
primary focuses is technician training.
"CroppMetcalfe is the home of the 5-star
technician," he says. "We have our own
academy, which provides four-year accredited
apprenticeship programs for HVAC and
Plumbing. We're known as the most highly
trained in the industry, and we understand
that there needs to be inherent trust between
our technicians and customers."
Two years ago, they acquired the Warrenton-
based TLC Services, which provided similar
services to CroppMetcalfe. While this allowed
the business to bring their outstanding
services to Fauquier and Culpeper counties,
they retained the majority of the same staff
members who were already known to their
