Kurt is home!

Kurt's flight was late- he ended up arriving at 2:35am. By the time we got home and settled in, bedtime was 4am. Ouch! The kids were great and played quietly until 10am. It was nice to get some sleep - we were all so tired!!!

When we were up and around I decided to make the family some waffles. Carter adores waffles, and I thought it would be a nice treat to celebrate Kurt's return home =) Of course, the waffles were gluten free- but they turned out delicious and perfect =) (breakfast pictured above - mmmm)

Most of the day was spent in a sleepy daze, and Kurt is already asleep (its 10:30pm). Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day! Either way, it is nice to have Kurt home and the kids are very happy =)

Recipe for a Happy Morning:

  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (we use King Arthur GF Flour- its great! But if you are using gluten free products, don't forget to add 1 tbsp Xanthan Gum)
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup butter or oil
  • 2 egg whites, stiffly beaten
  • Friends, family, or both!
Preheat your waffle maker or waffle iron. Put all ingredients, except stiff egg whites, in a large mixing bowl. Beat on low until moistened, then increase to medium speed until smooth. Gently fold in the egg whites by hand. Pour 3/4 cup of batter over your iron and close. Bake until there is no longer steam coming from your waffle maker or for about 4-7 minutes. Repeat for each other waffle. Serve hot and topped with your favorite toppings.

Toppings pictured above are Swiss Meringue and fresh raspberries, dusted with powdered sugar. Swiss Meringue IS safe to eat, because the eggs are cooked during the process. Give friends hugs, and family kisses, and enjoy!!!
