Pretty much every day, for at least one meal, my kids request pancakes. It’s my fault, really. I say yes a lot. :). Last week, after a hot summer day, H requested waffles for dinner. I thought for a second and then said, “Ok!” He watched me toss an avocado into the blender and sighed, “Mooooommm.” He says that when he sees me making food a little differently than he envisioned. I translate it as, “Can you just make “normal” food for once?” As it happens, I cannot. “Trust me,” I told him. “You’re gonna love this.” And he did. In fact, the whole family loooved this recipe. The avocado made for a really moist waffle. It’s not overly sweet, but still has a light chocolatey taste. Really delicious. :)
We're off to play Chester Creek Concerts tonight! It should be a beautiful Duluth evening! I hope to see some of you there!
