Waffles and a winner

I've told you before I'm a breakfast for dinner kinda girl, but this past Sunday I felt the need to make waffles in the morning! I know I'm just so freakin exciting you don't know what to do with yourself. Ironically when I was a kid it was the opposite, I lived for the weekends because that meant if I let my dad sleep past the crack of dawn he'd make me whatever I wanted (if I woke him up before dawn I only got cereal... smart parental planning)! Crepes, waffles, pancakes, french toast, he was like a short order cook whipping up things for me, my mom, sister, and nana. Even though I'm a cereal in the morning kinda girl now I still look forward to waking up to my dad cooking breakfast when we go to visit them :) SIDE NOTE: this makes it sound like my mom never cooked, not at all the case, so no commenting in defense mom ;) love both of your cooking! :)

As for the Lipton giveaway the winner is.... Sarah B who likes her tea: "I'm a big fan of Chai tea. But right now I'm sipping on a peppermint tea with one sugar!" I'll send you an email in a bit to get your address! Thanks everyone for commenting!

I love turkey sausage and pumpkin pancakes...and I make way better breakfasts than my hubby, so it doesn't change if I'm not the one in the kitchen.  But, usually it's just cereal for me.

Those look fantastic!  I could really get behind feeding these to my family!

Sounds like the husband needs to take some breakfast cooking classes ;) hehe. MMM I LOVE pumpkin pancakes!!

They were super easy to make! I bet they would love them!

Tracy said...

What perfect looking waffles! Mine are always so messy... And that waffle pattern is really unique- I've never seen an iron that makes impressions quite like that.

My fav is sourdough waffles with the goopy starter stuff. Best waffles I've ever had.

It's funny I never thought twice about it, but now that you mention it... it's not the normal pattern is it! HA!

Seriously?? YUM!!!! Recipe?? :)
