I dare say it's been a while since I posted. I'm sure I've lost most of my readers, but do come back! It's been a long start to the new school year, and I've been working some long days. Because of that I've been cooking just the basics on during the week and trying to bake on the weekend. Last week I finally managed to make a couple of things, but this week turns out I got got bronchitis. I guess I'm lucky I made it four weeks without those students getting me sick. So, I've been in bed for a few days, and my DVR is cleaned off so now it's time to update the blog with what's been going on in my kitchen.
On Labor Day Brian was so cute! He wanted to take me to Williams Sonoma to get some new kitchen stuff. I love going there in the fall. They have all their fun seasonal goods in, and it smell amazing in there. They were sampling their spiced pecan pumpkin waffle mix. It was so good. Tasted exactly like fall. All the flavors of cinnamon, pumpkin, nutmeg, and the candied pecans put those waffles over the top. The real maple syrup only added to the rich flavors.
Brian insisted we buy the mix, so we did. And for the past two Sundays we have made them for breakfast. The mix makes only two batches, and we got five waffles out of each batch. It was worth the money. So do yourself a favor and visit your local Willams Sonoma and pick up a mix, and enjoy looking and all their fun fall merchandise. I'll probably go back to making my own pumpkin waffles from scratch, but I'll definitely be adding in some candied pecans.
