He was soooooo excited about his truck! The truth is that I had ulterior motives for buying him a truck. I needed something that could haul away clippings from the yard, muddy bikes and the occasional wet dog.
We started the day by cleaning out the basement - a daunting task. (I'm amazed how 4 people can generate so much trash.) My son was anxious to drive his truck so I took full advantage of his eagerness and I filled it up on Saturday and let him drive my load to the dump.
Once the basement was clean, we moved outside. Ben and the kids washed the porches while I tackled the pruning. It was a gorgeous day to work outside. I didn't get accomplished nearly what I had hoped to accomplish but I ended up with more than a truck load of clippings for my eager driver to haul away.
With such a big agenda for the day, I knew that I had better make a big breakfast to keep everyone energized and fueled for the day. I made a batch of Buttermilk Waffles with fresh strawberries for all of my laborers - and my driver.
1 Tablespoon sugar 1/2 cup sour cream
2 cups flour 2 eggs
1/2 cup dried buttermilk 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 teaspoon salt 1/4 cup oil
1/2 teaspoon baking powder 1 1/4 cups seltzer water
Pour into a hot waffle iron.
Crispy, tangy, delicious waffles - every time. These waffles are quick to put together and really satisfying for a Saturday morning breakfast. Top them with fresh fruit and a dusting of powdered sugar - decadent!
Surprise your family this weekend with an extra special breakfast treat - buttermilk waffles.
