More pantry cooking
Pretty purple gazing ball not-withstanding, today is kind of gray. It has been snowing since we woke up, but it's too warm for any to really stick as of yet. Days like this call for a warming breakfast. I poked around in pantry and fridge, and voila!
This morning's coup? Chorizo, Zucchini, Cheddar, and Onion Waffles. It's almost four hours after breakfast, and the house still smells amazing. This is a waffle recipe I use over and over, from Rachael Ray. The original is a Grilled Cheese and Chicken Sausage Waffle, but I hate crossing the same territory twice when experimentation is possible, so the variations have been endless: Canadian bacon, regular bacon, different cheeses, sometimes corn and jalapenos, sometimes chives...you get the picture. As long as you stick to the measurements called for in the original recipe you should be in good shape. And your house will smell heavenly regardless of the version you attempt.
