Gentri Lee: Waffles and Shoes

6.22.2011

Waffles and Shoes

Our food has run low... very low. I will be living off of animal crackers (yes I am in my twenties and they're still a favorite... so what?? Big bag for $1.50? Yes please!), I have a few oranges and apples left, plus some frozen veggies. Why is our food supply so low? Well, that's because I leave to Alaska for a month and I really don't want to buy food that I might not eat. So I'm just going to deal for the next few days.

But when Sunday morning came and I had an urge to cook, I had to be creative. What did I come up with? I give you-

Chocolate Waffles with Cream Cheese Syrup...er Melted Frosting. Wow. Could there be a more unhealthy breakfast? (the answer is yes actually) I only had part of one (be proud), so I didn't feel too guilty.

For the waffles I just added cocoa powder and vanilla extract to your basic waffle mix. Then for the syrup/ frosting I just mixed together cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, and soy milk. Then I heated the syrup/ frosting over the stove until it was runny.

I promise I'm generally a healthy person... I had no food or choice! I had to make them!

In other news:

As I mentioned I am about to head up to Alaska. But I really didn't have any shoes that would work. Heels and Alaska DO NOT mix. No one wears them and the weather is not sunny too often. So this week I purchased the pair of the Stripe TOMS I had been wanting as well as the Steve Madden Tsunami Rain Boots I'd been eyeing! I am ready! (minus all that packing business)

And sorry about the giveaway winners... They'll be posted soon! Promise!

Both of those shoes are super cute and will be perfect for AK! And PS: I had raspberry pancakes and homemade buttermilk syrup last night for dinner because I just happened to have those ingredients, and I ate the whole batch!

Those waffles look so geniusly created. And so delish! We love waffles in this house, so I am going to have to try mixing in a little cocoa powder.

Those shoes are darling!

So - the kids and I had left over cupcakes for breakfast. I figured it's the same as eating pancakes or waffles, and as I was getting up the energy to cook a healthy breakfast Henry just kept repeating, "how bout cuc cakes?" I caved.
