yup, i have finally found a weekend waffle winner.
i have tried a few gluten free recipes that completely bombed the world over here.
i am excited to try these plain!
the previous waffle recipes came out "gross" as my children like to say, hard, non-tasting cardboard things that looked great in the pictures but not so much in real life. i am so happy that these are the complete opposite. reason numero uno why the mullies will be keeping up this gluten free nonsense.
oh babycakes, i must now find your first cookbook and buy it immediately.
i only used 3/4 cup tiny chocolate chips (it says 1 cup) and i really only need to use 1/4 to 1/2 cup tops.
these are totally great snacks! no syrup needed!!
this is all still a total pain in my arse.
but, it is getting easier & perhaps more enjoyable to cook and plan meals - as i'm not being met with daggers and shields at meal time.
the kids are finally becoming more willing to try new things. or i have become less emotional, panicked and/or angry when they don't eat. they know the rules: must try ONE bite, sometimes two or three depending on how much of a "stretch" the meal is for them. i make sure to have food they do want to eat and i blackmail them as unemotionally as i can so that they feel they have control over the situation and what they get to eat.
abbie and tommy are not as good as mac is when i put a new plate of food in front of them.
must be an age thing?
abbie has stopped slinking down in her seat (with major drama) and will now cautiously & politely (95% of the time) assess the situation, and let mac take the first bite to see if he keels over and dies from poison.
i just found this website and joined the pledge to be processed food free.
