I’m not a peppy, rainbows-n-sunshine type of girl, but there are specifically two times a year where I transform: Christmas, and Valentine’s Day. I’ve always been a big Valentine’s Day celebrator. February is my favorite month, because a week after Valentine’s Day is my birthday, and then a week after that is my and the BF’s anniversary. This whole month is filled with love!
So let’s start with breakfast. Especially if your significant other is not normally a “morning person,” there’s no way she/he could be grumpy after bringing her/him a tall stack of hot, fluffy, homemade strawberry and bacon waffles right after she/he wakes up.
Let it be known, if you prefer raspberries over strawberries, or blueberries, or blackberries, go ahead and use those. Also, if you aren’t a pork eater, it’s fine to substitute turkey bacon as well. Finally, these waffles aren’t incredibly sweet, mainly because I have an unhealthy obsession with maple syrup. One might say that I eat syrup, with waffles (and not the other way around.). If you don’t use syrup, go ahead and up the sugar to a 1/2 cup.
Now let’s talk about toppings. I had a couple of extra strawberries left over, and thought I’d make this breakfast even more special, by making heart berries! All you do, is cut a “V” shape into the top of the berry, and slice. See?:
This is only part one of a three part series for Valentine’s Day. If you don’t have a Valentine yet, don’t worry, you’ve still got 11 days! Go out there and grab one!
