Just when I thought I’d hit a creative stall… something amazing happens.

The batter will be really thick. If it’s too dry feel free to add a little more milk to moisten it up.

Wow.

The waffles tasted like sweet carrot cake muffins. They were moist, dense, and absolutely scrumptious.

I heated up some apples with cinnamon for a make-shift topping.

I’ll be making these again soon. Very soon. :)

Before I made waffles I ran 6 miles around my neighborhood. It was really nice not having to run anything close to double digits. I got to sleep in, took my time getting ready, and was still done with my run in time to make breakfast before Derek started stirring. I think I can get used to this break in training. :)

Derek and I have some last minute Christmas shopping to do today.

I’m also thinking I need to pick up some new wrapping paper for a little variety. ;)

How is your Holiday shopping going? Are you all done? I’m so close!!
