Fun Food!

Oooh, Color-Me-Gorgeous Berry Sauce!

Aubrey and Gavin loved having choices, this morning. Gav kept calling the waffle boats "banana boats". So cute. Aubs topped her waffles with the works. 

"I'm not sure how this is going to taste, G'ma."
Apparently, the combo was a success!

Have the waffles ready ahead of time; use your favorite recipe. When it's time for brunch, pop them into the oven, right on the rack for a crispy and delicious result. Raid the fridge and offer everything you can think of for toppings. Let the kids fix their own. They'll actually enjoy being at the table for a while, as they go for seconds. And we lucked out, as Old Sol made an appearance. Disposable servers made for extra fun, outdoors style. I served a big pan of scrambled eggs and lots of turkey bacon, as sides.

Today's Toppings:
A large Sam's bag of frozen Blue and Blackberries, 
reduced with lemon juice, honey, fresh ginger (removed when done) and cinnamon. This simmered for a long time, after which I put sauce through a fine strainer (very seedy). To thicken, I brought it back to a simmer and added cornstarch mixed with a little water.
Toasted Coconut
Vanilla Yogurt
Chopped Walnuts
Fresh Pineapple Chunks
Pure Maple Syrup
The ever-popular can of Whipped Light Cream
