Pumpkin Waffles

Every grocery list I've made over the last few weeks has had a can of pumpkin on it. See, something just comes over me when I notice the slightest glimpse of fall. The leaves begin to turn, we have a few cooler mornings and just like that, I want to make pumpkin everything. I think it's mostly the way it makes the house smell that entices me.

To me, there's a warm and inviting feel in a home, if it smells nice. Even if our house isn't perfectly tidy or if the kids are wild, all of that is minimized when the smell of fall fills the air. If I could tangibly hold the smell of fall in my hand, it would be warm, relaxing and cozy. It would be like a deep, relaxing breath. It smells like a friendly, accepting place. The smell of fall makes even waffles for dinner seem special.

This recipe is what I served our kids last night for dinner. It was one of those nights where I needed something that I could make quickly and that I knew everyone would easily eat. Within just a few minutes, our house smelled amazing and dinner was done.

The complete recipe is at the bottom of this post.

In a bowl combine flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and pumpkin pie spice.

In  seperate bowl, whisk eggs together and then add in milk, butter, vanilla and pumpkin.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet and then stir well.
Cook in a waffle iron, making sure to grease well between each waffle.
