Last week I made Chocolate Banana waffles. True confessions: I used a mix. I used to eschew prepared food because I am a snob. But recently I made pasta salad for dinner and I used jarred pesto from Costco, frozen pre-cooked chicken from King coopers, noodles, and all the veggies left in my fridge. It was amazing. I had to call my mom and apologize for years of mocking Rachel Ray recipes. But here’s where I make excuses for using a mix: I bought it for camping. At least I didn’t buy organic pancake mix in an aerosol spray can, like some people I know. (I do admire that person for that very feat, but I would never buy pre-made organic pancake mix in a spray can. A person has to have a code.) Anyway, I had some mix left over after camping, so I added 3 smashed bananas, and some milk and an egg, and then some white flour because I didn’t have as much mix left as I thought. It was so good! Hooray for mixes!!
Then, since I had the camera out, I decided to start trying to take more pictures and I decided to do a project that I am calling 52 Fridays. I am going to take at least one picture of everyone in my family every Friday for a year. I spent a dumb amount of time trying to find the right app for this, and I ended up just starting an album in shutter fly. I added last Friday’s pictures and a little description about our day.
Next week… Ann Marie’s Waffles!
And here is a picture from the waffle mix purchase camping trip.
Oh, and the obligatory dog-leash fiasco.
