I was so unprepared for this dinner. Not enough eggs, so we didn’t have eggs. Not enough white flour, so I used all whole wheat flour (which makes “thick” waffles)! Not that that’s bad, I like to mix white and whole wheat flours! To the grocery store I go…tomorrow!
A simple dinner after a busy day! (Ssssshhhhhhh…don’t tell anyone…since I had $.50 to spare, I added some mini chocolate chips that I got at Walmart for $.98 last week! Yep Nestle! The chocoholic part of my brain forced me to do it! Pumpkin chocolate chip waffles…MMMMM! Guess I’ll just have to whip up another batch of Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins with the rest of the choc chips and pumpkin!)
1 1/2 cups wheat flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 t pumpkin pie spice
1 pinch salt
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 2/3 cups milk
4 tablespoons butter melted and cooled (Guesstimate of all waffle ingredients $2.25)
1 Orange and 2 apples ($1.25)
Butter and Syrup ($1)
1. Make waffle batter. Place on greased waffle iron. Cook until steam stops escaping from the waffle iron.
2. Cut fruit and serve with waffles.
Cost $4.50 (or $5 if you include the chocolate chips, but Ssshhhh, we’re not telling anyone we had chocolate chip waffles for dinner!)
Can you guess whose plate this is?!?!
