We all knew it would happen. Summer is coming to a close, and it’s time for the kiddos to take on another year of school.
Backpacks are filled with school supplies. New shoes are tied. And Texas-sized appetites are waiting in the morning.
As we prep for a new school year, I always think about food. What will I pack in my daughter’s lunch box? What is a good supper to work on while helping with homework? But I don’t always think about breakfast. Like many families, we’re a grab-and-go bunch in the morning.
But this year, I’ve made it my goal to be better at making sure breakfast is as good as all the other meals I feed my family. So this week, I want to share something that is sure to get everyone off on the right foot.
Make-ahead recipes are probably one of the easiest ways to ensure everyone eats well and still gets out the door on time. Sometimes I make Blueberry Muffins the day before, but this week’s recipe is fresh and hot. The best part? You make the batter the night before, so it’s practically ready to go in the morning.
Warm, fresh, and crisp. This is a great way to give your kids the boost they need for the first days of school. And topping it with fresh fruit or berries will add extra flavor and nutrition. As an added bonus, these waffles also freeze well. So, depending on how many hungry mouths you’re feeding, you may have enough for the whole week. Simply cook the waffles as normal and freeze any leftovers layered in wax paper. Happy first day of school and from all of us at Texas Table Top, enjoy!
