This is pretty much us if you push the entire schedule back about 4 hours; we have not seen 7:30 in weeks.
In an effort to not spend my entire day and a million dollars in the kitchen, I have been making a larger breakfast hoping to limit snacking. In the last few days alone the kids have eaten 3 pints of berries, an entire watermelon, cantaloupe, 2 boxes of crackers, a brick of cheddar, and 3 lbs of grapes. And this is in between breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
I cannot afford summer vacation for much longer.
We make pancakes and waffles a lot around here. Stella would eat these parfait pancakes daily I think. Charlie is more a maple bacon waffle guy. Both kids LOVE chocolate and peanut butter, but really who doesn’t, so over the weekend we tried chocolate peanut butter waffles.
I cannot believe I have not made these sooner.
The waffles are chocolaty, not as much as these brownie batter waffles, but enough that you can tell the chocolate is there, with a hint of peanut butter. They’re sweet, but not overly, making them completely acceptable for breakfast.
Not to say you couldn’t top them with ice cream, peanut butter sauce, and hot fudge and call it dessert.
Not only are they delicious, but the chocolate peanut butter waffles did the trick; the kids went for an entire 2 1/2 hours before scouring the kitchen for a snack. That’s progress folks.
