A Red {Velvet}, White and Blue Breakfast

I kicked the holiday weekend off with a fun little breakfast on the porch. And by breakfast, I suppose I mean lunch since the boys didn’t roll out of bed until around 11AM. I fondly remember those summer days.

I went a liiiiiittle crazy in the Dash store after the post-Christmas doldrums set in. The mini star waffle maker was one item in my haul, knowing I could use it for patriotic holidays and Christmas as well. Along with the waffles, I set out red, white and blue berries, mini marshmallows, butter, sparkle syrup and the festive can of whipped cream I happened to spy way, way back on the shelf.

I’ve collected the serving pieces throughout the years, but here are a few sources.

The Runamok syrup is delicious! I gave it as Christmas gifts and kept a few for myself. We saw it in shops all over New England – and even a Star Spangled bottle – but Honey insisted I could not possibly carry home more syrup than I already was. (You should see the giant bottle I chose at Trapp Family Lodge!! I made him pack it in his bag in case it busted syrup all over everything. LOL.)

I don’t care for red velvet cake and, to be honest, I didn’t relish red velvet waffles either. The boys did, however, and Honey even said they were some of his favorite waffles. They were quite easy, using a boxed cake mix, and you can find the recipe below. If you like red velvet, give them a try! With every bite I kept thinking how much Jay Bird would enjoy them. He LOVES red velvet!

I think they would be better with some sort of a cream cheese icing, which is my favorite part of red velvet.

Happy Fourth, y’all!

The last part of my July mini tour is the pool area! We love it so, so much and rarely a day goes by when we are in town that there isn’t a crew back here enjoying it.

San Angel Inn Restaurante in Disney’s Epcot

There are so many fantastic restaurants in Disney World, that it is often years between when we repeat them. This was our third time at San Angel Inn Restaurante, and we continue to love it! The restaurant, modeled after a 17th-century hacienda at the base of Mayan ruins, is located in the Mexico pavilion in… Read More

New Jersey {Princeton: Jammin Crepes, Thunder Lacrosse, Dinner in Philly}

Well, all good trips do come to an end. We spent our last day in Princeton primarily cheering on Thunder ATL. We enjoyed Jammin Crepes on the sideline, unable to resist their yummy goodness even as much as we like trying new things. We flew in and out of Philly and made our requisite stop… Read More
