Happy mom = a better world for all.

what do you get when you combined a box of pancake mix, a 2 lb box of strawberries and whipped cream? A happy momma!

the night before chop up your straw berries and mix them with a 1/2 cup of sugar.  cover and pu tin the fridge  till

Make your batter as per the box instructions for waffles.

I happen to have a hand me down  cheap belgian waffle iron soo I am lucky.

Spray your iron with no stick spray. I dont care if it says it is non stick they will stick if you dont spray it.  Ok fine dont spray it see what happens. I don’t care.  they are your waffles. I pour about a cup of batter in to my iron, close it and let it go for  FULL 5 min. NO PEEKING! if your waffle iron is stil letting steam out after 5 min give it another min or 2 to  let the steam calm down. Not to much though or you will have burnt waffles. Blah

Ok waffles are done take them out of the iron put them on a plate and top with 2 scoops or strawberries and some whipped cream.  the only thing that could make this better would be some bacon. YUM!

Now i know you are saying ” wth sd2cb? i know how to make waffles! what do you think i am an idiot?” No I don’t. I think that some people  *cough* my husband *cough* are very uhm… brainy… and need very detailed instructions on doing simple things… even though i doubt any dudes read this blog maybe a few women need that type of instruction. either way there it is… now go to goodwill or salvation army and find your self a poor lonely unwanted waffle iron… i think that’s where my mom got the one she gave me. stop looking at the waffle picture and go!!!!

Whoops ran out of syrup!

So  we ran out of regular maple syrup and we cant get some more till payday.  That means no pancakes right? WRONGO! I made some homemade strawberry syrup with some frozen berries I have stuffed in the back of the freezer. It is Yummy. Maybe i will make chocolate chip pancakes for the syrup to go on. Or banana pancakes. MMMM.

Berry syrup

2 cups fresh or frozen berries. If you are gonna use strawberries and they are big slice em before measuring them.

1/2 cup of water

2 cups of sugar ( yes 2 don’t gawk at me just do it think of all the other crap you eat everyday. )

1-2 tbs of lemon juice.

Put it all in a saucepan.  bring to a boil then turn the heat down and simmer them  for a full 5 min.  Stir occasionally.  Let it cool and put it in glass containers of some kind then to the fridge. I had 2 old syrup jars readily available. Or put it on your pancakes or ice cream yum. Oh yeah I blended mine in the blender so I wouldnt have chunks. I wanted the smooth consistency
