Raisin Waffle Toast

Good Monday morning!  The sun is shining in through the windows on this beautiful start to the first full week of fall.... a great morning for a waffle breakfast!

While we were still at the market we went and had some lunch.  We ate healthy all week and today I had a treat.  The men had a little food trailer with pizza cones, chips, and candy bars.  It had a microwave and speakers too.  I had a BBQ chicken pizza cone.  It was cool!  The pizza dough was shaped as an ice cream cone.  They stuffed BBQ chicken, cheese and sauce into the cone.  They heated it in…
