Monica and Daria say:
Ice cream is a food that we can eat anytime, any season, right?
Well today is “Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day” so who’s ready to celebrate?
Oh so many flavors, so little time to eat them all….we decided on a pistachio almond that is so smooth but has the great crunch that we are craving!
And of course, since it’s breakfast, we decided to combine the ice cream with gluten-free waffles to ramp it up a bit! We used Pamela’s Baking Mix!
When Daria was little, she and her sister along with all of the neighborhood kids and parents, used to descend upon our house on the 4th of July. Why? Because we lived near a hill which overlooked our local high school football stadium and that’s where the city would have the fireworks show!
After the wonderful display, everyone would walk back down to our house and we would make waffles and ice cream for everyone! It became a tradition!
Then when we were diagnosed with celiac disease, our celebration changed. We continued to make waffles and ice cream for everyone, but for the first year or two, we only indulged in the ice cream. Once we learned how to mix the flours, we searched for waffle recipes. In those days, there were no mixes!
Bottom line, we survived it and it’s the memory of the fun times we had all those years that’s important!
We’ve since moved away from that wonderful neighborhood but still stay close to the best neighbors anyone could have!
If you want to make some great memories, fire up the waffle maker, get out the ice cream and invite your neighbors, friends, and family over!
You won’t be sorry!
