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!  

My kids love waffles!  They also love raisin bread!  Last week while recipe hunting I stumbled upon this neat twist on a waffle breakfast that incorporates both... "Raisin Waffle Toast".  It was a very simple fix that took just minutes to prepare and put on the table. 

Raisin Waffle Toast
3 eggs
3 tbsp milk
2 tbsp packed brown sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
6-8 slices raisin bread

Heat waffle iron.  Whisk together eggs, milk, brown sugar and vanilla in a shallow dish.  Dip raisin bread into egg mix.  Place in waffle iron, close and grill until golden and baked through.

I served the waffle toast with an easy raspberry smoothie.  Christian has a smoothie every morning for breakfast.  It's a great way to get his servings of fruit and diary in one glass.  

Raspberry Smoothie
1/2 small banana, 1/4 cup raspberries, 1/2 cup milk

Slice the bananas into the blender.Add raspberries & milk.  Blend until smooth.

Christian gobbled up the Raisin Waffle Toast, with a drizzle of syrup and slurped down his smoothie before he caught the school bus.  He said that it tasted delicious and wanted to have it again next week.  I love it when a good breakfast comes together.

  1. Sorry that it's been a while since I visited your blog, but this is a fantastic idea! Hope your winter has been as mild as ours has and that you are all doing well. All is well here in North Carolina...we just found out that we will be stationed here for another 4 years and that our oldest son will be joining the Coast Guard to become a chef!

Banna-Nutella Tortilla Wrap

While standing in the grocery store line last week I was flipping through a cooking magazine and came across this idea.  I thought it was the perfect after school surprise for Christian.

First I spread the nutella on a tortilla.

Then I put a peeled banana on it.

Rolled it up...

...and it was ready to eat.

Christian shared it with his little brother and they both gobbled it up.  A little messy... for Alexander especially, but worth it.

Aztec Blend

I was at the Bulk Barn last week and decided to try out one of their rice blends. It is Aztec Blend #1656. It includes colusari red rice, long grain brown rice, split peas, and amaranth. I had no idea what some of those ingredients were but figured anything's worth a try, right? When I got home I looked up colusari rice & amaranth. Colusari rice is a burgundy-colored chewy rice that has a light nutty-popcorn-like flavor and amaranth is actually an herb.

It was very simple to prepare & actually pretty good. The peas were a little crunchy which added nice texture. I was surprised that both kids really liked it.

My Pinterest Inspired Asian Meal

This is a meal that we had last week that was entirely planned using Pinterest.  Thoe of you who know me well are well aware of my addiction to Pinterest.  Yes, addiction.  It has even been said that I need a Pin-tervention.  :)   I cannot help it though, I not only enjoy looking for recipe this way, but I have found it very helpful in meal planning.  I now even have weekly menu boards created on Pinterest to organize my weekly meal plans.  It has become a great tool.  So I guess you could say that this meal, in a small way, does prove that I actually do make recipes that I find on there. :)   Anyway, I was in the mood for a different kind of bbq meal so I choose to make Asian Grilled Drumsticks, Asian Cabbage Mango Slaw, Tricolor Thai Salad with Zucchini & Yellow Squash, and plain white rice.   Early in the day I put the salads together and because there were so many vegetables it involved a bit of prep work.  Plus l thought it would be a good idea to get the vegetables maridnad…
