A Fresh Dille

father’s day waffles.

Posted in FAMILY, FOOD, VEGAN by clairedille on June 20, 2010

my sis, me, and my dad

As I write this, I am sitting with my father watching the World Cup. Since my brother lives out west in LA, I am the one who usually watches sports with him these days. The two we enjoy most are Tennis and “Football.” My dad typically enjoys his British-style breakfasts, but I decided to try to switch up the Father’s Day meal this morning with some delicious waffles à la Jessica. In the past I’ve mentioned my father, and his affinity for breakfast with eggs.

Since I am not too into making bacon & eggs, here is what I made. My sister made the bacon.

I didn’t stray too much from Jessica’s recipe, except for puffed brown rice for puffed millet and light coconut milk for greek yogurt. These were delicious but unfortunately I forgot the baking powder again. The deep waffle iron in my parents home tends to grab onto the waffles with its dear life but once I managed to peel each waffle off and pour on a maple, almond butter, and coconut milk sauce, they were very tasty (although a little overcooked).

Now it is time for the farmer’s market. I hope everyone is having a wonderful father’s day with your Dad!

    Your dad looks like such a sweet, caring person, which is obviously where you got your very kind nature as well. Beautiful pictures of you guys. I hope you have a fantastic Sunday and Father’s Day as well Claire!

    Oh, and he reminds me a bit of Steven Spielberg??

    Great pictures! I’m glad your getting some Dad time in 🙂
    Glad there was some waffle success in your home today, too. I wish I had a deep waffle iron – i’d love to compare the taste differences between mine, which just produces thin ones. I hope the recipe adapted well for you!
    Hope you had fun at ther farmer’s market!

    What wonderful pictures of your father! (He really does look like Steven Spielberg!). And it was so great of you to cook your dad a delicious breakfast. I did the same for mine (although not waffles) and he absolutely loved it. Like they say, the best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach 😉

    Happy Father’s Day to your dad!

    What a sweet thing to do for Father’s Day- literally! My dad also loves waffles in the morning, so I bet he would have enjoyed this sort of treat.

    The waffles were a winner here! My boys loved them. I used a belgian waffle iron and with the baking powder, they do puff enough to get them out. This was such a sweet post. I hope your dad had a great day!

  11. […] so much for the kind words about the photos I included in my last post of my father. It is funny that a few mentioned he looked like Steven Spielburg since he is a director for […]
