I managed to completely forget to post this, last weekend. So much homemade (short of raising/killing the pig and growing the potatoes, anyway) tastiness.
This past Christmas, my entire family got us kitchen stuff. It’s hard to explain how exciting it was to open up package after package of non-stick pots and pans, a Belgian waffle machine, a grill pan… and we used much of it while making last week’s Sunday morning breakfast.
Blueberry Belgian waffles, country potatoes (steamed first, then sauteed) and bacon. Oh, man, eating at home is SO much cheaper than going out every Sunday morning, and we get to keep the leftovers!
I like to make a double-batch of waffles (or pancakes), since Gabe and I don’t tend to have his girls on Sunday morning. That way, they can have a good breakfast Monday morning, or some time later in the week. I generally wrap up the leftover waffles in plastic wrap (I don’t really like the stuff, but it’s effective), then we can take out however many we need and pop ’em in the oven for a short while to warm them up. A half-waffle a piece is fine for kids their age/size. Any more than that and it just goes to waste.
