pumpkin waffles

  pumpkin waffles ~ tasty waffles that make your house smell like Fall.

Well, it finally got below 80 here last week. Woo~hoo! And, after three solid days of rain, we were blessed with a beautiful crisp clear Florida fall day. It was enough to make me giddy, and do a happy dance.

It also happened to fall on a day where my moms group was meeting at a church pumpkin “patch”.

I brought my camera…

and, my youngest found the smallest pumpkin. Which, was awesome since it cost me 50¢.

I also picked up a cookbook that the women’s ministry was selling, and that’s where I got the recipe for these:

It’s so funny… especially since I was telling my girlfriend how everything is pumpkin lately….and here I go adding to it. When in Rome….

Now, I am pretty certain that these will make great pancakes if you don’t happen to have a waffle iron.  But, I also think that you may have a waffle iron… it’s tucked away with your fondue pot and pressure cooker, I’m sure. Maybe it’s behind the camp-gear in the garage? 😉

If you don’t have a waffle iron… well, they are pretty neat little devices- I made waffle toast once in mine…and jalapeno cheddar waffles, too. Bliss.

I honestly am not sure why I took a picture of the batter. Maybe because it was a rad shade of orange?

I do know why I snapped this. The steam. Ooooo. Hey! See my waffle iron?! Yep, I snagged that new on Ebay for ten buckaroos. Ch-ching!
