    These recipes are great! I’ve been looking for a waffle recipe and I think I’m going to try it with whole wheat flour since my husband is diabetic. We are actually going to have family photos taken on Father’s Day since we baby will be 1 month!

    Mmmmmmm! That spinach and potato frittata, waffles and smoothie sound YUMMMMMMMMY!!! I make a frittata for breakfast, but not with spinach. I’ll have to try that one!

    Little One and I will be making Hubby breakfast for Father’s Day, only I won’t serve it to him in bed. LOL! As a kid, we always made Mom and Dad breakfast in bed on Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, but as an adult, I have issues about eating in bed! LOL! *sigh* I know…pretty sad! LOL!

    I’ll make my hubby breakfast but unless he starts serving me in bed then he can’t have it in bed either. Plus he is a messy eater. LOL! I can’t wait to see his reaction to what our boys home made gifts. Happy Father’s day to all the wonderful dads out there!!!!
