Of the far- too-numerous-to-count things I love about weekends away, breakfast is near the top of my list. Of course we could have breakfast at home…
But, well – we don’t. I guess I can’t explain it.
mornings away tend to be relaxed. A quiet cup of coffee while gazing at the mountains usually starts the day. Then I get hungry inspired, and head to the kitchen.
Waffles are a favorite in our house, and I love making them. I don't have a special recipe that I always use, but I like buttermilk waffles the best. I add a couple tablespoons of sugar (maple if I have it) and a teaspoon of vanilla - they're best just slightly sweet.
And - I admit it - sometimes I use a mix (gasp!). My favorite mix is one that I pick up at the Dorset Union Store in Dorset, Vermont. It's a pancake mix - just add a couple extra tablespoons of melted butter - yummm!
I really don’t do tablescapes – although I love looking at them. In my house, we’re lucky to have the table set before we sit down.
