So, this weekend I made a couple of big batches, (about a months worth), of scratch Belgium waffles! Easy to make and easier on the budget, too!
We are doing another sweep through our house and making some changes! Including ditching more quick and convenient easy meals that contain preservatives and chemicals. One way I decided to save money and be assured that I am feeding my children better ingredients was by making it myself!
Scratch Belgium Waffles
With these we will put a big bags worth in the freezer and pull them for easy and quick breakfast option for the kids!
From start to finish this only took me about 30 minutes. The benefit is years added to my families life for cutting out one more bit of toxins in our diets.
