Today I had grandiose plans to make art but a spontaneous opportunity to tag along with the hubby for a trip to the city shot those plans to hell. Quin & I hopped in Daddy's truck to accompany him on an excursion to pick up building materials for the ski hill. We did get a bit of recreational shopping in as well (more on this tomorrow) but we were all feeling a bit under the weather so came home in a reasonable amount of time.
It was about 8 PM once we were home and settled, and we had done a fair bit of snacking on almonds, apples, dried mango, pistachios, and granola bars in the car, so we were not in need of a huge meal. I offered to make Belgian waffles, a family favorite, which was met with immediate approval from both husband and child. So, a meal of locally produce bacon for the meat eaters, OJ, and waffles with real Canadian maple syrup and strawberries was born. Breakfast for dinner is ALWAYS a good idea! Yum!
I like to mix it up when we make waffles, so I don't turn to one tried and true recipe. Tonight's recipe came from a lovely little site called Mr. Breakfast, whose motto is "All Breakfast All the Time". Ahhh that Mr. Breakfast, a man after my own heart. Here is the recipe if you would like to try it:
Best Waffles Ever(5 servings)
* 1 and 3/4 cups flour
* 2 teaspoons baking powder
* 1 Tablespoon sugar
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 3 beaten egg yolks
* 1 and 3/4 cups milk
* 1/2 cup vegtable oil
* 3 egg whites - beaten stiffly
Mix all dry ingredients. Combine yolks and milk. Stir into dry ingredients. Stir in oil and mix. GENTLY fold in beaten egg whites, do not over mix. Pour about 1/2 cup at a time into waffle iron.
So light and so fluffy!
Mr Breakfast would like to thank kejensen83 for this recipe. And so would we!
