I hope you are all having a wonderful and relaxing weekend so far! Today, if you didn’t know, is National Waffle Day and I whole heartedly support this holiday. During the week, breakfast is usually a quick bowl of cereal with a cup of coffee. On the weekend, everyone is off work and no pressing homework that needs to be done, so we take it easy. That starts with making a delicious breakfast. The usual go-to’s are pancakes, waffles, french toast or hash brown and eggs. Today, we’re having waffles and below you will find the recipe I’ll be using, in case you feel like celebrating waffles. If you do decide to join the waffle party, share with me your favorite toppings! If social media is more your thing, share with me on my Instagram @mightrunforcupcakes. Happy eating!
- 2 Eggs, Seperated
- 2 Cups, Buttermillk
- 2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
- 2 tsp Baking Powder
- 1 tsp Baking Soda
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 1/2 Cup Margarine or Butter, Melted
Heat waffle iron. Place egg yolks in large bowl; whites in small bowl. To yolks add buttermilk; beat well. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; beat until smooth. Stir in melted margarine. Beat egg whites until soft peaks form; fold into batter. Bake in hot waffle iron until steaming stops and waffle is golden brown.
Today is National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day, as well as, Pet Parent’s Day, so they go hand in hand. In my household we have a total of 5 rescue fur-babies, 2 dogs and 3 cats.
When I was younger, my dad told me when we were looking for a new member to add to our household, that it was important for them to choose us. That process has held true as long as we have had pets in our lives and we wouldn’t have it any other way. We have loved and will always love all of the animals we had the privilege to care for. The slogan is very important, adopt don’t shop. Now I’m not going to get political, I highly dislike when a blog post starts innocently enough but then take a very unwanted twist. There are so many animals out there just waiting for their forever home.
I know that not all of my readers don’t live in the same general area as me, but I thought I would share a few locations around the valley of AZ where a potential fur-baby is waiting for you.
