Ugly pictures, Delicious breakfast

On the weekends, I try to make a big breakfast to make the most of my time with hubby. This morning while hubby was out picking lettuce in the garden, baby started acting up and was showing no signs of having patience in waiting for him to finish his morning routine. So, I decided to whip up a smoothie while we waited, but no no...this baby wanted dairy. I'm still adjusting to these strong cravings for meat and dairy, so cooking feels like a new adventure. (and I'm usually so hungry, I get half way through eating before I remember to take a picture. Note: the crappy pictures on today's blog)
Blueberry smoothies (with dairy)
*1 frozen banana
* 1 small handful of blueberries
* 6 oz Stoneyfield Plain yogurt (keeping the sugar down so I could enjoy the maple syrup with my waffles-yum)
* splash of OJ
Toss everything in Blendtec (or other blender) and blend. Made about 12 oz and baby and I were charged for the morning....that is until an hour later when it was waffle time :)

Pamela's Banana and Pecan Waffles
* 1 1/2 cup Pamela's baking mix
* 3/4 cup water
* 2 eggs
* 2 Tbsp oil
* 1 tsp vanillaMix ingredients, pour in waffle maker, top with pecans, banana slices, and pure maple syrup and ENJOY! (I tried mixing the banana into the waffle batter this morning, but it messed up the texture. The waffles weren't crisp on the outside, like they should be. I recommend just tossing the banana slices on top of the waffles)

I love smoothies for breakfast. And waffles! I'm hoping for a waffle iron for Christmas ;-)

At first I thought a waffle iron was silly, because I didn't think we'd use it much. I told my husband we could just have pancakes, no equipment needed, but let me tell is definitely worth it. We use it all the time. Food is made quickly and cleanup is even quicker. Plus then you get delicious waffles whenever you want. Frozen ones just don't compare.
