Strawberry Lemon Waffles

I forgot to mention a small detail regarding my trip to Virginia for my friend’s wedding.

I took a little spill…down some stairs. It caused a cankle and an enlarged knee. Whoops.

Due to my travels and respective injury, I haven’t been to yoga in two weeks. I went back for the first time today, got home 20 minutes ago, and I’m already sore. I need a waffle.

This weekend Chris and I replanted our Earth box and a couple of other pots with some new produce and herbs. I’m especially excited about the brussel sprouts and cheddar cauliflower though!

P.S. This is the infamous basil plant…post trimming.

We also paid homage to the Padre’s at their last home game of the season.

Let’s just say, the gorgeous view from Petco park was more entertaining than the game they managed to lose in the last inning.

One of my favorite things about Fall are the sunsets. We caught this beauty over the weekend.

Tonight the clouds were literally neon puffs of cotton and I didn’t have my phone/camera with me to capture it but trust me, it looked like this sunset on steroids.

Now about these waffles! They were Saturday morning’s breakfast and a result of a Costco size bag of lemons and a batch of strawberries on the verge of self destruction.

Instead of adding chopped strawberries, I used strawberry puree and a little lemon juice in place of additional milk. This prevents the chunks from making the waffles soggy and gives natural strawberry flavor to the waffles.

The lemon adds the perfect brightness to these waffles. The zest and juice give a tangy punch that pairs perfectly with the sweet strawberries.

    It’s still nearly 90 degrees here which makes it sooo hard to do Fall recipes! These were a hit either way though :)

  3. Yum, these sound like perfect light waffles for a taste of summer in fall!
