Waffles with an apple pie flair, made with apples and all the favorite fall spices. Then topped with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream!
Entenmann’s donuts. Otherwise known as “The Devil’s Work.”
I hadn’t eaten one of their donuts in years. But then we went camping with our friends last summer, and when we got up to the cabin, a variety pack was sitting on the countertop. Just beckoning to me. Well, that was the beginning of the end.
I’ve gotten into this bad habit of buying them all the time now, especially during soccer season when the kids have an ungodly early start time and I can’t deal with making breakfast.
Then I did the unthinkable. Paul was traveling (during an entire week of minimum days << EEP << that means me being more exhausted than usual) and I gave the kids one of the glazed before school. And I swear it was like I was handing it to them in slow motion, knowing this was a bad choice.
So, to redeem myself (in my own mind, of course – because Haley and Trevor see nothing wrong with my bad decision making), I took advantage of the enormous apple haul we brought home last weekend, by giving them an apple in their lunch, made them eat an apple after they got home, and then made these apple pie waffles for dinner.
But then I
accidentally served them with whipped cream and a scoop of vanilla ice cream. So basically, dinner turned into dessert. And I just give up now.
