Waffles!


Our own waffles, but the idea came from the blog
"Random thoughts of a Super Mom."
This is what happens when the Mr. looks at blogs!

He gets ideas!

Ideas that he thinks would be fun to do . . .
but then needs my help to do!

Friday, the Mr. saw this on a blog and said,
"That'd be fun to do for the cherubs for breakfast tomorrow!"

Saturday morning breakfast is "His" thing.
Has been since we've had cherubs.

So, on Saturday, I'm trying to look real busy being "comfy" when I hear him say,
"I'm going to need your help!"

Here's where it started:
  • He had no waffle mix; so I had to search for a waffle recipe.  Found one!
  • He didn't really know how to add "my" food colorings to the batter; so I did that too.  Looks pretty close to the real color!
  • He didn't know what he was going to put the different waffle color mixes in so that he could pour the different colors; so I grabbed 2 of my favorite squeeze bottles, with different size tips, so it would make the "pouring" easier!
  • He didn't know where the waffle iron was; so I got on my hands and knees and went to the very back of the cabinet and grabbed the iron.  I also plugged it in to get it warm and I showed him how to liberally coat the iron so the waffles wouldn't stick.



The result:
  • He made great looking candy corn waffles for me and the cherubs Saturday morning . . .along with bacon that he cooked!
The lesson learned:
  • I'm going to keep him away from reading other blogs!
Waffles

1 3/4 cups flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 eggs
1 3/4 cups milk
1/2 cup oil or melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla (I used vanilla nut flavoring from King Arthur)

Mix the flour, sugar and baking powder in a bowl.

In a smaller bowl, blend the eggs, milk, melted butter and vanilla together until eggs are well incorporated.

Slowly add the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients, stirring well.

Heat waffle iron and cook until waffles are golden brown.

Serve with syrup or your favorite waffle toppings.

This recipe made 8 waffles.
