Happy Thursday friends!
It is currently 5:30 in the morning and sweet Baby Mason is still sleeping, so I thought I would pop in and say hello!
I’ve realized that balancing home life and work life is hard, and trying to find time to blog feels nearly impossible!!! I mean, I’m lucky if I get to shower – praise the Lord for dry shampoo and body spray. Amen.
But since I’m off of work today (Mommy-Mason Day!!!!), I have some time this morning since I don’t have to make a lunch and pack my breastpump. Blogging time – yay!!
Let’s talk about breakfast. Do you guys have a favorite waffle mix?
I feel like every time I’m in Target standing in the Baking aisle, I end up starting a conversation with a new gluten free person and telling them my Must-Buy Waffle mix:
I LOVE this King Arthur Flour Pancake Mix so much. But instead of making pancakes, I use it to make waffles. This mix gets nice and crisp on the outside, creating the perfect nooks and crannies for a lake of butter:
and the inside is SO FLUFFY!!
The only downside is that you have to make the entire box, BUT that’s not actually a downside because these waffles make the BEST freezer waffles. So make a big batch and then freeze them. Pop them in the toaster when you’re ready for a waffle and they reheat PERFECTLY!!! Crisp on the outside, fluffy on the inside.
We had breakfast for dinner the other week (my fave!!) and had these waffles served alongside a new-to-me chicken sausage:
Don’t pay attention to the overflowing waffle iron…
These Applegate Farms Chicken & Maple Sausage Patties were SO GOOD!!! I’m bummed that there are only 6 in the box and they aren’t cheap. However, Harris Teeter puts them on BOGO Free often, so I just stock up when they’re on sale.
Breastfeeding has made me seriously crave meat, so I like to have some quick options on hand. Otherwise I’d be requesting cheeseburgers for dinner every night! (instead of every other night) I’m obsessed with cheeseburgers – what else is new.
Also currently obsessed with:
Like everyone else in the world!
I LOVE kombucha, so I’m stoked that MOH told me about this one. Blueberry and Coconut water? Yes please!
He LOVES playing outside. He gets the most serenely happy look on his face as the wind blows through his baby hairs. I love appreciating the small things with him.
And my last obsession:
Baby toes. I mean, come on. What is it about baby toes that are just so….edible?!?!
So tell me. What are you current obsessions?
Do you have a pancake/waffle mix that you absolutely love?
