And then you make whatever batter you're in the mood for, regular, lemon poppy seed (my favorite...however, there is a little bit more clean up that will be waiting for you once it goes through your child's digestive system...those poppy seeds pretty much come out unchanged...don't be alarmed when you open up that dipe), chocolate chip (the secret is to use mini chips...they keep your iron cleaner), pumpkin, blueberry, etc. If you're making for just you and the kids they usually only eat half a waffle, and then the best part...you freeze the rest and you've got breakfast for at least three days and a good one at that. You can pop them in the microwave or toaster or if you're really in a hurry, those kids will eat them frozen...especially if you've made chocolate chips, less mess when they stay frozen. Did I mention that they're great when the baby's teething...just put a bib around that baby and throw them a frozen waffle.
Now can you see how great it was when my good friend brought me over bags of waffles of all different kinds...I had breakfast for weeks, it was a life saver after bringing Seth home. It's a meal that I will never forget; no one else has every giving me food for breakfast. Think about it...your husband is usually home for dinner, he can help cook or get things going for dinner...it's breakfast when you're left in the lurch. So next time you sign up to bring over a meal for that mother who's just come home...make her a few batches of waffles...she'll never forget it!
When that company wakes up after a long day of travel the night before...they think you've bent over backwards to make them this wonderful breakfast, and you have, but you didn't have to bend over backwards. They rant and rave over how good they are, especially when you've made a few different batches. Don't worry, you won't have left overs, and if you do you're secretly excited because you know where they're going...in the freezer, to make your life so easy one morning when you can't get it together!
I hope this either helps to get you out of a breakfast slump, think this was funny to read, or you think I'm totally crazy and need to just buy some Eggo waffles. To any rate, you won't be making fun of me when you've stayed the night and you wake up to the smell of warm syrup, fresh strawberries with whipping cream and the aroma of a waffle cooking on my iron...HaPpY BrEaKfAsT!
