Strawberries are the angels of the earth,
innocent and sweet with green leafy wings reaching heavenward.
In honor of our strawberry angels, we pick them with no pants on and eat them out of a bucket like a cow. But we do it all very reverently.
And we make waffles!
makes about 8 waffles (non-Belgian)
basic recipe is from Pancakes and Waffles
1 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons sugar
3 eggs, separated
1 cup milk
5 tablespoons melted butter
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup cut-up strawberries, tiny pieces
Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Mix together separately the egg yolks, milk, butter, and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients and mix a little bit. Beat the egg whites until stiff and fold into the batter. Fold in the strawberry pieces. Cook in a waffle iron.
These were a great breakfast to fuel up for a big morning of geocaching. We set out to find the Dinosaur Train (a PBS cartoon) geocache. Brent accidentally found it in about 15 seconds after we started looking. D'OH!
Kind of anticlimactic.
So we used my phone to find another one nearby. That made us a feel a little better. We like a good treasure hunt. Then we played at a park and called it a morning. And a nice morning it was. Time to take our pants off and pick some strawberries!
