Hallelujah! We made it to June 1st. To me, this is the unofficial start of summer. I definitely didn't think summer would EVER come during the long, dark days of winter.
But, here we are embracing another season. A season of warmth (usually of extreme warmth and humidity too). A season of slowing down and savoring time during the longer days. A season where everything just feels more relaxed. And for most kids, its 3 months of absolute downtime.
Even adults get into that summer vibe. I know I totally roll the windows down and blast my radio Summer just feels good and is reminiscent of when days consisted of carefree pool time; endless books; and, bike rides before all the "adult" stuff kicked in.
Oh wait...I'm reliving my youth. But, do you remember those days? Yeah, those were fun weren't they?
Seems like before we get to that downtime though, there's always a huge rush to get everything done. There are final projects to finish; final exams to take; meetings; playoff games; year end celebrations; teacher thank you's....the list seems (and for most of us, feel) endless.
It's almost as if there's never enough time to get it all done. Even for the things we enjoy--like breakfast.
Notice there I said almost.
I mixed these waffles in less than 10 minutes and they were ready in just 10 minutes more. So, in less than 20 minutes, I had a yummy breakfast ready for me to tackle my day. Is it just me or do waffles just "stick to your ribs" more than other breakfast foods? They last me for way longer than a bowl of oats or a smoothie. I mean, what's not to love....full of whole grain goodness; healthy fats; and some spicy cinnamon.
Add some nut butter; chocolate chips; flax; and, fruit (all optional toppings of course....go crazy with your selection!) for some extra brain fuel.
I'd say you are ready to rock those end of grade exams!
Let me know what you think about this quick and easy waffle. Tag #whiskingoutsidethebox to share your creation.
