I am overwhelmed by the comments, tweets, facebook notes and emails I have received from this inspiring and thoughtful community about the passing of our puppy Mason. I am incredibly blessed to know you and to have this connection with you. Thank you so much.

I wanted to share this recipe with you, which I made several weeks ago and decided to make for dinner again tonight.

I absolutely love “breakfast for dinner”. There is something wonderful and nostalgic to me about it. Something that my mom used to make for us on an occasional night. And I am just feeling tired and sentimental, so this was the perfect thing.

It was easy to make and tasted great and there was an oozy fried egg on top for goodness sake.

To make this waffle, this is what you do:

Sift the dry ingredients together. In a separate bowl, beat together the eggs, butter and milk until fluffy. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and gently mix together.

    You’re such an amazing wife and mother. Sometimes there’s nothing else to do but circle the wagons and nurture the family. Waffles definitely fit the bill. Take care of yourself with a wee bit of pampering.

    • Vicki -thank you, thank you. I am feeling that way. I am going to take off with my girlfriends next weekend and take a breather.

    I made it Heather it’s just perfect for breakfast ,brunch, lunch, dinner and between .what do you suggest to put in it instead of bacon ? I made it without bacon

    • Oh great!!! I bet it is a good dish with no bacon if you don’t want meat at all. I think that the egg on top gives plenty of protein!
