Last week some of you shared some favorite tips and summertime activities with me, so today will be my first installment in featuring your summer favorites. The common thread among your emails and comments was family time. Whether it was an annual gathering for a picnic, vacation with extended clan or an afternoon doing arts and crafts with your kids, some quality down-time with loved-ones is what we all seem to strive for in the summer.
An old friend of mine, (old as in I've know her since we were in Brownies together, not as in old lady) who clocks a lot of beach and pool time with her three adorable boys, shared this recipe. Sounds like the perfect way to end a fun summer day...
After a long day in the sun, the kids are beat - and so am I. Rather than sweat it out in the kitchen cooking food they're not going to eat anyway - I make Belgian waffles w/ice cream and whipped cream (sliced bananas... whatever!) for dinner. We do this about once a week :)
Light and Crispy Waffles Recipe - very crispy!
2 egg yolks
2 c milk
2 c flour
1T baking powder
1/2 t salt
1/3 c oil
2 egg whites, stiffly beaten
Preheat waffle maker. Beat all ingredients (except egg whites) on low until moistened. Increase speed to medium until smooth. Gently fold in egg whites by hand. Pour 3/4 c batter over grids, close, bake until steam no longer escapes.
I think we'll be trying this after our next beach day. Please keep your tips and favorites coming via email (firstname.lastname@example.org), comments or for you fellow bloggers, the link below. Thanks to all who shared their suggestions with me!
Happy Friday and have a wonderful weekend.
