Waffles in the car?
Breakfast on the go is hard enough without adding the stress of making a mess in the car. Is seems like toast is about the only safe thing to bring. The problem is toast can get boring and hard for the kids to eat day after day. How about waffles? Now, before you have nightmares of sticky kids and syrup dripping all over the back seats, take a look at this:
1 box frozen toaster waffles, or your own made in advance
1 8 oz. Package non-fat or low fat cream cheese
½ C. Maple syrup (sugar free works well)
½ C. your favorite fruit chopped into small pieces.
Soften the cream cheese to room temperature. Add the maple syrup (or other flavoring if you desire). Whip until well blended. Stir in the fruit and return to the refrigerator to solidify.
In the morning, toast two waffles. Spread the maple-fruit mixture on one, and top with the other like a sandwich. Wrap in a paper towel or plastic wrap, and shoot out the door without a crumb. Much healthier and tastier than dry toast.
Imagine how difficult traveling back in Biblical times was. What did they feed their kids to keep them quiet? Were their travel meals nutritious? Or were they dry toast?
Moses said, "This is what the LORD has commanded: 'Take an omer of manna and keep it for the generations to come, so they can see the bread I gave you to eat in the desert when I brought you out of Egypt.' "
Exodus 16:32 NIV
