Birthday Waffles

Monday through Friday we scurry out of the house to get to school and work on time. Going back to work full-time has definitely put a time constraint on my creativity in the kitchen. Which means that on weekends I get to fulfill the cravings that I was not able to satisfy during the work week. I especially like to go big with breakfast. Probably because it's the meal that I get cheated out of all week long. By the time everything is done in the morning, I literally run out of the house in with a half toasted bagel, a pint of cold brew coffee, in heels with my work bag as I yell at the kids that we got to go, while they are still trying to locate their other shoe, because they "can't find it"... Mind you I count down for them every morning, "10 minutes kids".... "5 minutes"... and now we're late. >:-/

This happens EVERY morning. So on weekends, I enjoy the slow pace and the fact that I can spend time making the meal I miss every morning. Today I bring you Birthday Waffles, because it's officially my birthday month, and I'm trying to give Mr. Hangry a hint. lol!!
