Happy Monday morning – and the beginning of that five week “fast” until Christmas! Well, maybe not. But I do hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and gained, at least, a pound to show for all the effort that went into those meals!
We did something totally different this year – and it worked! I had struggled and struggled with trying to create new traditions…or, at least, trying to do things a bit differently. Without Tyler here – and Jordan not even being able to come home – things are NOT the same and we needed a change. But I had a hard time giving myself permission to “not follow the rules.” We didn’t even have turkey, folks! But, I must admit, it was a great day.
Reflecting back, we all agreed it was a really good Thanksgiving. Hubbie does not like turkey. Never has. (That’s a bummer because I love turkey and we could have it a lot more than once a year….) My daughter is a vegetarian and so, you can begin to see how the traditional turkey feast really was not what everyone was wanting.
But we do love breakfast. And breakfast carbs:) So we started our day with brunch…and homemade belgian waffles!
Not just any belgian waffles I have to say…..these were topped with vanilla bean Hagen Daas ice cream, hot apples, just a drip of syrup and whipped cream! If you’re thinking ice cream on waffles (like I did at first), then you haven’t tried it! It was devine. Thanks to Kristine for the suggestion – AND for the waffle iron. (so have to get one of those!)
