Whole Wheat Honey Waffles

I recently went on a business trip to wine country in Santa Ynez.  I was gone for 3 days, and in typical working mom fashion, I felt the need to bring back a “guilt gift” for the kids.  Somehow wine didn’t feel appropriate so I got them a honey bear at a local specialty shop.

The kids were desperate to use the honey  so I came up with the genius idea of waffles.  Both kids wanted in on the action.

Immediately after this lovely shot, that entire measuring cup of liquid was spilled on the floor.  It was the ONLY milk I had in the house.  So I went out, bought fresh milk and we started over.  Made the entire batch and as I pulled the waffles off the iron I realized that I had forgotten to add the oil.

I tried to pass that batch off on my husband who after one bite said “Wow!  This packing material tastes amazing.” Aaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhh!!  Third time’s a charm.

    Oh man; glad I’m glad I’m not the only one!!! Thanks for keeping it real though. I needed a good laugh. I’m sort of surprised you didn’t change the prep time to 1.5 hours. 😉
