As long as we had gotten so far off track, why not make something that is not even on the menu plan? This would have been on next week's plan, but I realized a little too late that Sunday is still part of the prior week. I forgot to thaw out meat today, so hubby suggested I just buy some meat when I went to the grocery store today. I had already planned to buy some bacon since it was on a really good sale, so that made it easy to decide to make this meal.
Hubby is not a big fan of waffles, but he agreed to eat them because he loves me. Or something like that. I love waffles! I would probably eat them as often as he would like to eat biscuits and gravy. Must be something about Bisquick I guess!
I just use the recipe on the Bisquick box, so no sense repeating that here. This time I served them up simply with butter and syrup, but I briefly considered going with strawberries and whipped cream since I had both on hand. Hubby made himself some eggs to go with his (I suppose to make his meal less waffle-focused) but I just had bacon and OJ.
