Welcome! I am a mom to two wonderful kids and one lazy dog, and a wife to a great husband. Needless to say, there are a lot of daily messes to clean up around our house. Daily Messes is my blog to share ideas on things to do with your kids, snack and meal ideas, crafts, and holiday fun. I hope you find something to enjoy!

It's International Waffle Day!


Today is International Waffle Day! It began as a Swedish holiday, but who doesn't love waffles?There is also a National Waffle Day (US) on August 24, which honors the waffle iron being patented in 1869. Of course, it just gives me another reason to make waffles!

The boys and I love waffles. We eat the frozen waffles, make waffles at home(out of a mix since I haven't tried making batter from scratch yet), and have eaten waffles at restaurants. For Christmas we received a rotating Belgium Waffle Maker, which has worked out great and I love it. The boys have lots of fun seeing what kinds of waffles we can create. We like to try different shapes and toppings: heart shaped waffles, a butterfly out of waffles and fruit, blueberries, powdered sugar, maple syrup, and sometimes just butter. I tried a shamrock for St. Patrick's Day, but it ended up becoming just a big blob. There are some really cute waffle makers that are already in shapes (hearts, heart on a stick, circusMickey Mouse, etc.) that I would probably get if I had the room. I'm always surprised how much faster food gets eaten when it's in a fun shape.


How do you like your waffles? What are your favorite toppings?
