Welcome Waffles

I created Team O as a place for Morgan and I to chronicle our day-to-day lives and the adventures that occasionally arise. I despise the kitschiness that is scrapbooking, but can appreciate the memoir aspect and think this works just as well.

One thing that seems to preoccupy us quite a bit is food. We like to eat and cook. Well, I like to eat and cook; Morgan likes to eat. Look for recipes and feel free to stop by and share your own, too!

This weekend I made blueberry waffles. Nothing too special, just the recipe from the Bisquick box with an oversized cup of berries tossed into the mix. So simple and soooo good.

The other cool thing about homemade waffles is how well they freeze and reheat. They triumph over Eggo waffles in taste and in cost. Just let them cool, place them in individual sandwich bags (to prevent them from sticking together) and then in a gallon-size Ziploc freezer bag. Pop them in the toaster when you want to eat them. Don’t thaw first; just like an Eggo.

Basic Bisquick Waffles
2 cups Original Bisquick mix
1 1/3 cups milk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 egg

Stir ingredients until blended.

Pour onto center of hot greased waffle iron; close lid.

Bake about five minutes or until steaming stops.

Carefully remove waffles.


Makes about 12 (four-inch) waffles.

Our blueberry bush is full of berries if you guys want to come over and pick! I'll pay Morgan 10 cents a bucket. ;o)

We may have to come over and pick yours, because our blueberry bush died (I suspect Morgan killed it so he wouldn't be tortured with flashbacks of his first job)!!
