Aaaaaand we’re back from our Chicago trip.

The house is really low on groceries – we have bread, eggs and a little bit of milk left.  

Luckily, those ingredients are perfect for things like waffles, pancakes and french toast :)

I wasn’t sure what I was craving first thing so I put the coffee on and made Chad some challah french toast.

I rifled around the pantry a little more for myself while he ate and then I spotted it:

The ticket to the world’s easiest pancakes and waffles.

I plugged in the waffle iron, threw the very last of the mix into a bowl with 1 cup of water, then poured myself some coffee and simply waited.

Three short minutes later – I had this in front of me!

Since we have basically no fruit except for a few frozen bananas (which I may or may not be saving to make these with) I simply added a little sunflower seed butter…

And a touch of syrup that we got from Evan & Deanna’s wedding:

It made for a pretty delicious breakfast, but I’ll definitely be interested to see how long it holds me over without the fruit.

Coffee accompanied as always:

Now it’s back to the [not so] wonderful world of the GRE

Challah french toast is the best :) Your waffles looks great too! Welcome back.


Cait June 20, 2012

Thank you! And agreed – there’s no french toast quite like challah french toast!

Mmm those waffles look delicious!! I need to try Kodiak cakes. I always see the mix in the grocery store, but the price puts me off.

I loved following along on your Chicago trip! It is one of my favorite cities and you captured it so well!


Cait June 20, 2012

Aw, thank you so much! I always worry about doing cities justice!


Erica @ For the Sake of Cake June 20, 2012

I have been telling my husband how badly I want a waffle iron! I need to head to Bed Bath & Beyond with one of my millions of coupons & get one!


Cait June 20, 2012

Oh you haaaave to get one! They’re actually not too unreasonable price-wise!
