Today is Mother’s Day in New Zealand so I started early in ringing all my mothers. I have 3 who are important to me. My inlaw mother, my ex-inlaw mother and my own mother. I was unable to send them their usual gift of chocolates this time as I have been unwell for a week and was unable to get out to the shops. However, I do know that the 3 of them appreciate hearing my voice every now and again, so phone calls are nice to keep up with loved ones.
Quote from Abraham Lincoln
“I remember my mother’s prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life.”
Breakfast Waffle Sandwich
2 eggs; 1/8 cup milk; salt and pepper to taste; 4 frozen multigrain waffles; 2 slices of cheese
- Preheat the oven to 350ºF (177ºC).
- In a bowl, beat the eggs and the milk together.
- Scramble the eggs in a skillet over medium heat. Season with salt and pepper.
- Toast the waffles according to package instructions.
- Spoon half of the eggs onto a toasted waffle. Top with a slice of cheese and one more waffle. Press down firmly. Repeat for the other sandwich.
- Place the sandwiches on a baking sheet and bake in the oven for 5 minutes, or until the cheese melts.
- Remove the sandwiches from the oven. Cut them in half and serve.
Use the label below to transform a regular bottle into something special to give your mom with breakfast. Wash out a glass or plastic bottle and peel off any labels. Cut out the label below and tape it around the bottle. Fill the bottle with your mother’s favourite drink, or use it as a vase to give her a Mother’s Day flower. (Tip: If you are using the bottle as a vase, put pebbles and water in the bottom to keep it from tipping.) Note: If frozen waffles are not available, you can use toasted bread or even tortillas.
And this is what I did on Mother’s Day for my great grandson who is arriving shortly. As you can imagine it is a little hard to knit a pattern as well as talk at the same time. Have a Happy Mother Day to all of my mother and soon-to-be-mother friends
