When i was a child we used to go to my mothers parents for waffles most every Sunday. the waffles were always tasty but one of my favorite parts was playing with the toy box they had for the grand kids filled with old stuffed animals, a few small dolls, and change purses as well as the opportunity to cut out coupons. I always loved looking through the adds in the news paper and clip clip clipping. i think it is kind of like using crafting skills for a none crafting application. anyways back to the waffles.Now that i am somewhat grown up it makes me feel really good to be able to share my waffle Sunday habits with the world. i serve them at the Logan Square farmers Market every sunday in chicago. the other week we had a few left over waffles and i created a maple waffle pudding. here is the recipe
maple waffle pudding
2 left over waffles
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 3/4 cups non dairy milk
11/2 T. fat melted (earth balance, coconut oil, olive oil)
2 T. ground flax
3 T. tapioca starch
tear waffles in to 1″ pieces. mix all other ingredients together in a bowl. toss in waffles and coat evenly. pour in to a baking dish and bake at 350 F for 20-30 min. depending on your oven, or until slightly firm but still has a little movement. enjoy warm or cold. super tasty with fruit on top.

My grandmother is the queen of thrifting. She would never buy anything new. She wore this blue and lace dress to my uncle’s wedding in 1991(i think). I acquired it a few months ago along with two bird decorations from my grandparents 50th wedding celebration. i used one as the chest decoration.
