Classic Waffles

Do you ever just want to have a “me” day and even though there are other people in your house you plan something that you want to make for yourself and plan what your going to watch on tv and just have  a relaxing “me” night. Well thats what I had done, and I should have known better. All I wanted to do was watch survivor and eat waffles.. so I had made the batter the night before and all I had to do when I got home was cook them. Well dan insisted that he make supper last night.. so he threw in some breakfast sausage and warmed up the waffle maker.. and poured in way to much batter and locked the waffle maker shut, then kept opening it every 5 seconds to make sure it was working.. well all we got was a sticky mess.. when I got home I tried to tell him what he was doing wrong but he ended up getting all defensive and WHAM a fight broke out between us and I ended up crying in bed most of the night.. All I wanted was a perfect waffle supper and Survivor had started.  We ended up aplogizing and cleaning up the huge mess together.. hopefully my waffle maker is still workable dan submerjed it in water.. what else could possibly go wrong in one night? Well at least Dan is gone tonight.. boys night out.. I think I’m going to make bread tonight, that way I don’t have to worry about it rising during the day. If I start it at 9, punch it down at midnight, bake it at 5.. then go back to sleep for a couple hours that should be ok right? I just dont’ want to tire myself out if we are having mel’s suprise birthday tomorrow at the rink, but I can have plenty of time to sleep and stuff.. I just have to stay awake long enough for it to bake at 5.. which is only an hour or so.. I should hopefully be able to fall back asleep on the couch..

YAY LAPTOP!

o I finally got my laptop in, and I spent all of last night figuring it out and getting all my programs up and running the way I want them to be.

Its so great, I just need to find my photoshop disc and get that up and I’ve pretty much got it all then. I also need to do my blackberry stuff but that can wait a bit yet. I’ve been having some problems with it crashing alot and I can’t figur out why… its only when I go to add a contact or save something on it. It just freezes up, I get an error message and it crashes.. Not much fun.

Anyway, I thought I would start off the weekend right this morning with some waffles.. I love waffles and I’ve never had fresh made ones until last  summer on my birthday. I went with my friend Liza to her parents house for birthday breakfast (we have the same birthdays). It was the best birthday lunch ever!

Here is my “healthy” banana waffles.

Banana Waffles

Nonstick cooking spray
1 3/4 cups flour
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 1/2 cups milk
2/3 cup mashed bananas (2 medium)
1 slightly beaten egg
2 tbsp cooking oil

Lightly coat the grids of a waffle baker with nonstick cooking spray. Preheat waffle baker according to manufacturer’s directions. Meanwhile, in a large bowl sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon; set aside. In a medium bowl stir together milk, banana, egg and cooking oil. Add to flour mixture until combined, it will be lumpy.

Spoon about 1/3 cup into each side of the waffle maker and close lid quickly. Do not open until done. When done, use fork to lift waffle off grids. Serve warm with banana slices top with whipped cream and a cherry.

This was my breakfast this morning. It was so good! It took me a couple tries to get it right.. but it ended up great! Anyway, off to get groceries!
