My family and I have decided to keep things simple this Valentine’s Day and eat in. Not only is Valentine’s Day right around the corner, February is National Hot Breakfast Month! Perfect, because the way to a person’s heart is through their stomach! We love eating breakfast for dinner so this year I’m creating a waffle bar. Thanks to Krusteaz for providing a variety of their mixes to help us get our Breakfast Night on! I can’t think of a better way to spend the night with the people I love the most.
I admit it, we have breakfast night a couple times a month. It’s a fun way to switch things up especially when I’m at a loss on what to make for dinner. Plus, breakfast is an easy meal prep for my daughter to be involved with. She loves throwing on her apron, preparing ingredients and in this case, reaching for a box of Krusteaz mix. She follows the easy directions to get her best baking results.
I received a waffle maker for Christmas, and this fun item has gotten plenty of use. Not only have we made waffles, but we’ve also cooked omelets and created delicious grilled cheese sandwiches! On our last Breakfast Night, my daughter confidently whipped up a batch of Belgium Waffles while dad took care of the bacon and eggs (which he always cooks to perfection). I prepared the table and picked out our toppings for our golden brown waffles. This time around we topped our waffles with blueberries, whipped cream and powered sugar. How sweet it is!
On Valentine’s Day our do-it-yourself waffle bar will include berries, bananas, chocolates, syrup, butter and more. Don’t forget your families’ favorite juices!
The skies the limit to your waffle bar! Lay out a fun table cloth and include some pretty fabulous ingredients for a fun Breakfast Valentine’s Day Night dinner!!
Breakfast food at the dinner table puts a smile on our faces and this dinner plan is easy on the pocket! Who has the money for expensive dinners out these days? Plus, VD is on a Tuesday night this year- school night! If you start eating early enough you can pick a movie to watch together for the perfect Valentine’s Day.
My family loves each other every day of the year so this isn’t limited to a holiday. I see future waffle bars on the menu.
