And today... I'm Making WAFFLES!

For the first time in... well, probably EVER, there is no cereal in my house.  Not one single box.  Unless you count oatmeal.  For this purpose, I am not. 

We have chickens.  There is always at least two dozen eggs in my refrigerator at any given time.  Eggs make lovely, protein-filled breakfasts.  However, there are those in the home who do not have the time or energy to prepare an egg or two in the morning.  (time = man of the house, energy = me)

That is why today, I set aside an hour and whipped up a big batch of pancakes.  And one of waffles.


Once the pancakes and waffles were griddled or ironed to golden perfection, I stacked them (separating between them with some waxed paper) and bagged them up for freezing. 



Voila!!  Enough frozen waffles and pancakes to last for breakfasts all week.  And both batches probably cost me less than one box of a commercial brand.

I had no idea they froze easily, now with just the 3 of us I am always trying to cut recipe in half but I still end up with extras that they find disgusting to eat the next day I think I need to send them to Africa for a weekend then we'll see who eats day old waffles lol. i am going to try the freezing sshhh :}

    1. They really do freeze well! We just pop them in the toaster oven to reheat.

      I know what you mean! A week in Africa or Haiti would make them appreciate any waffle you put in front of them. LOL

    1. I highly recommend it! About an hour of work for a week worth of breakfast. If your griddle is bigger than mine - even less time!
