One of my son’s library books this week gives all sorts of fun facts about different foods. It’s called Food Trucks, and it has also inspired a food truck game he plays with his sisters. I love when library books are multi-purposed! We happened to be reading 2 days ago that National Waffle Day is August 24. We couldn’t read that and not celebrate. Since we just had waffles, and this was a “celebration,” I decided to try to make chocolate waffles. (They were still pretty healthy with whole wheat flour, Greek yogurt, cocoa powder and shaved 70% dark chocolate, but don’t tell my kids that!) All the kids thought they were awesome and tasted like brownies. Personally, I still thought they tasted ‘healthy;’ ha! But, good…. I thought they were good! Either way, it was a win!
Just to be sure this was legit, I googled National Waffle Day, and sure enough it is legit! If you are curious about the origin, click here. Happy National Waffle Day! (And, thank you, wonderful library!)
