Sweet potato waffles

Sweet potato waffles have never come at a better time. This weekend, I am home alone once again and the only thing that can feul me with the toddler filled days are of course waffles. Not any old waffle will do. Only sweet potato waffles can do the trick. I went to the farmers’ market this morning and I had to time it pretty nicely because sprinting through has to come with a game plan. Snacks, water and a list of to buy’s. All the necessities led to a pretty smooth morning and a much-needed nap time afterwards (for the both of us btw).

After a pretty eventful day, I am on the couch eating some coco yogurt, raspberry and crumbled almond butter cookies on top. My feet are snug in my wool slippers while despicable me is on the tv. The inner child in me is super happy right now. I love animations and my all time favorite is Thumbelina. One thing that makes weekends like this past just easier are interaction with other mothers and kids as much as possible. That means socializing for the both of us and that makes the moral so much sweeter. Not that there is something wrong with being alone, but I can’t do alone a whole weekend. I need some adult conversation.

So Sunday obviously is a laidback do nothing kind of day. Waffles are the answer, except when pancakes are the first preference. My son loves pancakes or waffles with loads of maple syrup (like they should be-drenched) . Either way, they are just as good and what makes these super yum, is the fact that they are served with tonga bean coconut yogurt and maple baked muscovado grapes. YUM. I think muscovado is my favorite kind of grapes, ever. It reminds me of when I was a kid in my mother’s garden, helping her pick grapes and eating the muscovado grapes by popping them into my mouth and disregarding the skin. I think they go so well with these waffles and just look at how glossy they are.
