Sunday morning is always a time we take to sleep in and relax, one of the few days of the week we have time to cook a big breakfast and enjoy it. This time I went with a Sunday Brunch feel, using just the supplies I had on hand. I whipped up some homemade waffles with a little help from my ever faithful Bisquick (their site is now offering a coupon for 50 cents off). I followed their basic waffle recipe, adding a touch of vanilla & a few sprinkles of cinnamon as I normally do with most baked goods.
When the waffles were ready, I added a generous scoop of Dreyer’s Vanilla Ice Cream, a handful of blueberries (I always keep a bag in the freezer from Costco) and drizzled Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup over the top. I served it with sides of breakfast meat – bacon & sausage (apologies to my vegetarian friends) are favorites in our household and tall glasses of Simply Orange orange juice. We added syrup to the mix as we dug in and devoured the tasty creation! It was a quick simple meal that was hearty & warm on a day that promises rain.
The critic, my 9-year-old daughter, said “I can imagine you making this every morning for breakfast”. Imagine being the key word! I think this meal was a winner. Do you have a favorite recipe to share? A weekend tradition? Send them in and we’ll share with Life On The Scene readers!
On a side note, we had the Dreyer’s Vanilla Ice Cream on hand to use with our Halloween candy. Vanilla isn’t typically the flavor of choice in our household but we’ve found it to be a fun & creative way to use up the Halloween candy – by mixing in chopped up Reese’s peanut butter cups or Snickers bars, just like the Blizzards you get at Dairy Queen!
Another bit of Sunday enjoyment is turning on some relaxing music and just letting it flow through the house. A favorite is Maroon 5 who have their latest release, Hands All Over, available now via iTunes. Maroon 5 is currently finishing up a tour of the United States before they head to Europe next year. I’ll leave you with their classic, Sunday Morning. Enjoy!
