Headed South

We're off! We've packed, we've cleaned, we've left the keys with loved ones. Puerto Rico here we come. Looking forward to sand in our toes soon.

So this is a parting gift to any other breakfast lovers out there. My gal Leya asked for this recipe so now you all get it. We schemed up these waffles (or pancakes if you wish) back when it seemed like Osh would never get into solid foods and he loved these right away. These are superfood waffles, and this recipe is for a crowd (or we mix it up and store the batter over a few mornings).

Sweet Potato Zucchini Waffles

3.8 ounces all purpose flour
3.8 ounces spelt flour
2.5 ounces oat bran
heaping tablespoon wheat germ
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
scant 3/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
scant 3/4 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon clove
2 eggs
11 ounces buttermilk
6 ounces milk
4 ounces oil
1.3 ounces molasses
4 ounces grated zucchini
6 ounces cooked, mashed sweet potato

Combine dry ingredients, combine wet ingredients, gently mix wet into the dry. Depending upon the consistency of your buttermilk (we get a kind that is super thick), you may have to tinker with a bit of milk or flour until they are perfect.

Ok so I know not all of you own cooking scales - I think you can find equivalents out there on the intertubes pretty easily. However: we lovelovelove our scale. We use it constantly, and avoid so many dishes by doing so. This is the one we have, not pricey and it has been humming along for years now.

Diets and Osh

Oscar hanging with Aunty Diets last week. Kid was absolutely mad for her. Mad, I tell you. He is still asking about her. She and I baked and made art and walked and generally did not do much while doing quite a lot. The Squish has been loving our guests. My very oldest girl and her boy were also just here, and he was pretty darn psyched about that (more on what they brought for him later).

Be well out there. Catch you in 2012.
