Ice cream for breakfast day!

Today is international ice cream for breakfast day. There are only three rules:
1. Eat ice cream
2. for breakfast
3. on the first Saturday in February

Make the batter with seltzer, not whipped egg whites
So we did! I invited a few friends we and ate homemade buttermilk waffles (from the Cook's Illustrated recipe) and topped them with Graeter's ice cream,  toasted pecans, frozen berries from our garden (blues, rasps and chesters), Theo Chocolate cocoa nibs, sliced bananas and real maple syrup (for the Canadian, at least).

A good time was had by all!

Waffles rest in a warm oven for 10 minutes to crispen

The finished product

  2. You live your life fully! I love that you had ice cream for breakfast. Wished I had read that this morning. I really missed out. I wanted to let you know that my mets is officially in remission. I don't know how long that will last. The plan is to continue taxol and avastin and then take a drug break from taxol in the late spring and summer.
