Whenever Stella and Wes have a sleepover at their Bubbie’s house they always come home smelling of syrup. No matter her efforts to wipe them clean they always have that sweet, sugary smell on their soft cheeks-and ears, hair, neck (seriously it is everywhere). This morning I was craving Pumpkin Waffles so I enlisted my two helpers.
We have created a take turn system with adding recipe ingredients. I turned my back and they were cracking eggs. They love cracking eggs. And they are good. Like I’m starting to feel like I need a special bumper sticker because I’m so proud. “Proud Parent of kids that can crack a dozen eggs with no egg shell.”
Easy Pumpkin Waffles
I digress. Pumpkin waffles. Drippy syrup. Ah yes. I love making special flavored waffles. Did you read my Pizza Waffles post? These pumpkin waffles are so easy-seriously my kids put them together, I just supervised and ran the waffle iron. They were as yummy as you can imagine, perfectly pumpkiny (is pumpkiny a word?) and ready for creamy butter and drippy syrup. We scarfed the pumpkin waffles down and headed to church. When we sat at church, the kids took turns sitting on my lap and couldn’t help but smile at the sweet smell of syrup they both still carried from breakfast.
