so, we were supposed to be in the midst of a giant blizzard today. instead, i woke up to the tinkling sound of rain puttering on my roof. what a weird, weird winter. sigh. kind of glad i am a shut-in today with lots of projects to work on.
i thought i'd brighten things up by telling you what i ate over the weekend :) ha. it's so strange how the nano-second that i decide to start eating better, i think about food all the time. i am hoping that phenom passes. but for now, it's kind of good to share my new discoveries. please bear with me... :)
• rolled oats from the canister (i usually have the old-fashioned ones - not sure it matters for this recipe, since you blend everything together. at any rate, just pick something that has ONE ingredient on the side of the box.
• a banana
• a couple of small other things, but not really anything important...like baking soda or powder?! how can that be?!!!!
it looks kind of thick when you're done. i only made a half-batch, because i was not a believer, yet anyway.
okay, so look at those! if it looks like a waffle, and smells like a waffle, can it truly be a waffle. or is it just oatmeal in disguise? i'm not sure!
you decide for yourself. the finished product was definitely heavier than a normal waffle, and a little lacking in flavor, but for the chance to leave the white flour and sugar in the pantry, i would call this one a 'keeper.'
i always freeze my leftover waffles and toast them for breakfast...did that yesterday, and yum. crispy goodness and a carb treat that is good for you.
i might be getting into this ;)
ps. remember that one time when i did that one messy job?
okay. here we go again. sometimes, i feel like bill murray :)
happy day, y'all! eat waffles!
