National Waffle Day 2015

All right…any reason to celebrate food. Today is National Waffle Day so we changed our dinner plans to include breakfast. Was planning on making Helga’s grandma’s recipe from the Hungry Belgian but ran out of time. So we opted for an Allrecipes recipe that wasn’t too bad for last minute…

Here is the iron…

The batter…

Looks like we are ready to roll…

And what are waffles with out all the toppings?!

Cocoa nibs…

Stewed tart cherries…

Powdered sugar, cocoa powder and cinnamon…

Flaked coconut and chocolate chips…

Slivered almonds…

Maple syrup, peanut butter, butter, cinnamon sugar and whipped cream…

And voila…they were delicious!

Yum! Did you celebrate? Tomorrow is National Whiskey Sour day…Not sure if we will celbrate that one for breakfast or dinner or heck, maybe both!

Technology timeout…

A 9:03 tee time. Nice way to start the day after an early morning walk around the resort and visit to the fitness center…

A swim to cool off…

Our must have Nessy burger for dinner…

A techology timeout to play silly games…

The last lone smore before we end the day at the pool…

Yes! It did get eaten!

What shall we do tomorrow?

Another year at Welk…

Lets start our annual Welk vacation with a martini!

Henderick’s gin, biters, blue cheese stuffed olive and a sprig of rosemary.

On to pu-pus that turned into dinner! Lots of healthy options!

Some fun from the past…a poloroid and the present…an iWatch

And it wouldn’t be Welk without our cookie dough fest!!

Woke up to the wonderful aroma of pancakes, bacon and eggs from backyard chicks!

Next on the agenda…Off to pick up SweetPea from Steubenville, then to the pool!!!
