What a weekend!

Welcome back to Monday everybody.

We had a very busy weekend. The kids had two birthday parties, I had a bridal shower, and Madeline had a soccer game all on Saturday. Sunday we took the kids to Sunday School and caught up on grocery shopping. Needless to say, the weekend went by VERY fast.

Madeline also got her ears pierced on Sunday. This was her second attempt, and this time she actually went through with it. She had a smile on her face the whole time. She was a bit nervous before the procedure, but was able to watch somebody else have it done which seemed to calm her. She says that she didn't feel anything and that there was no pain. She has been very good about not touching them and making sure that I clean them often. That's her above, proudly showing off her new jewelry.

Tonight we're having Belgian waffles with strawberry sauce and scrambled eggs. We attempted to healthify the waffles by substituting sugar free applesauce for the oil. Here's the recipe for the waffles adapted from my trusty ol' Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook that my grandma gave me when I moved out on my own:
1 c white flour
3/4 c whole wheat flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 eggs
1 3/4 c skim milk
1/2 c sugar free applesauce
Combine flour, baking powder, and salt. In another bowl, slightly beat the eggs and then add in the milk and applesauce. Add wet mixture to dry mixture. Stir just till combined but still slightly lumpy.
Add one cup of batter to preheated and lightly greased waffle iron. Bake until they are done to your liking and then remove with a fork.
We topped them with strawberry sauce which consisted of a cup of frozen strawberries, 1 tbsp water, and 2 tsp sugar. I cooked it on medium heat for about 20 minutes and then mashed up the bigger strawberry chunks to thicken the sauce. Serve the sauce warm over your waffles.
Enjoy your Monday.
