First week of summer vacation is almost over and I haven't posted in weeks! My goal is to post at least once a week this summer, especially if I test a new recipe. Tonight, after being inspired by Weight Watcher peeps using Kodiak waffle mixes, we drove to Buffalo, bought some and I made Lemon Strawberry Kodiak Power Cake Waffles from TwoPointsforHonesty's blog tonight.
They were soooo tasty! I'm excited to try other recipes using the mix. My daughter served up the non-fat cool whip a little heavy on our plates. It should be a tablespoon. I promise I didn't eat it all. Pictured is my husband's plate- my first attempt at the waffles. He DID eat all the Cool Whip, but he's not on WW.
Next time I'd use more of the lemon. I was rushing as we were eating late, so I just used the half lemon that I had in the fridge. The waffles just had a hint of lemon. I'd like a bit more and the recipe called for more. They smelled so good, too. TwoPoints blog has these as 3 point waffles. I didn't have non fat syrup, and used a tsp of maple syrup which is always in our fridge, eh? So that added a point. I added another for the extra Cool Whip that I did eat.
In weight loss news, I lost my 10 percent on my Weight Watcher's adventure that started in late April. I WAS down a couple pounds this morning, but with a Cheesecake Factory meal for lunch (though I did choose carefully), and this late night waffle eating, we'll see if my weight bounces up a bit tomorrow morning at my official weigh in.
I also joined Boot Camp this week and survived my first session on Wednesday. I felt sore today, walking around searching for waffle mix, but am excited to see how I can improve my fitness and hopefully tone up!
Anyway, I look forward to more blog reading and blog sharing, as it will (usually) mean that I've tried something new. I need to keep my interest levels up for successful muffin crumbling..
Have a great weekend!
