Zucchini waffles are a perfect way to start your day. You can feel good about giving your kids these zucchini waffles before they go back to school. The zucchini and cinnamon together make a very nice blend. You will also love how nice and moist they are. And they work up pretty fast too. You might just want to double the batch, because I promise you, they go fast! We like to use our home made version of maple syrup and I will post that recipe next week. I must warn you, once you taste that home made syrup, you will never go back to syrup that you get from the store! My kids will not even eat syrup that was bought in a store; no way no how. Okay they will if there is nothing else and no way possible that I can make some. It does have a lot of sugar in it, but at least there isn’t any corn syrup in it. Or you could use my Buttermilk Syrup, which is also very good.
Yes, sorry here is another zucchini recipe! But what is a girl suppose to do with all this zucchini? There are a lot of fun recipes out there and so I knew that you would all love this one. It is a great way to sneak some vegetables in, and if you don’t tell your kids they will never even know that these zucchini waffles have zucchini in them! Zucchinis truly are just like rabbits. One day there aren’t any, and the next day, there are 4 or 5.
Well, I must say that the other day when I went down a water slide, I was thinking that I was young. However every time I went down one level, I would fall right off of the inner tube that I was on! There were some nice young kids there to help you get back on, and they looked at me like, lady maybe you should be at home rocking in your chair. Well guess what, it is time to live and I am never going to go down in years, but I am pretty sure that I can feel younger if I keep moving and not sit home in my rocking chair. Don’t tell my sister; she thinks that I am rather boring because I like to stay home. What can I say, I am a stay at home kind of person. However, I am going out of town for a few days and I told my son, if I don’t come back, it has been nice knowing you. He said “please come back or I will starve”. Well at least I am good for something! And my cooking must not be so bad!! Maybe his younger brother will take care of him, he made my Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo from the blog the other night and I was really proud of him, he did a great job. I hope that they will all continue to cook at home and enjoy the pleasure of good food. Enjoy using up your zucchinis!
