Thank you to Log Cabin for sponsoring my post about updated traditions in my household.

I was selected for this sponsorship by the Clever Girls Collective, which endorses Blog With Integrity, as I do.
Even though this post is sponsored, thanks to the nice folks at Clever Girls Collective, it couldn’t have come at a better time because everything in today’s post is something I was planning on posting about anyways.
Growing up, I had a few good traditions that centered around food. For example,
- Friday night was pizza night because dad was out bowling and mom, I’m sure, didn’t feel like cooking.
- Christmas morning brunch was made by me.
- Sunday mornings were made for waffles or pancakes, and my dad was what we called our “Official Waffler.”
I’ll still stand by my statement that my dad makes some of the best waffles around. In fact, he recently “upped” his waffle making to a whole new level this past Christmas, when he received a Double Belgian Waffle Maker.
He’s no joke…and either is this contraption.
Unfortunately for me, since I no longer live with mom and dad, I often miss out on those Sunday morning waffles, and have yet to try his new goods. BUT…there’s hope!
This past week, my family and I were talking about what we were going to have for Easter dinner. You see, we’re not really the typical “ham & turkey” dinner type when it comes to holidays or special dinners. I’d say 85% of the time, it’s most likely lasagna or some other form of my mom’s amazing Italian cooking.
So I suggested that we start an entirely new tradition on Easter by having Breakfast for Dinner! I mean, really, who doesn’t love breakfast for dinner? I know we all do!
Give me waffles or fluffy pancakes with lots-o-syrup any time.
I’m quite looking forward to our new Easter “Dinner” tradition! And I’m actually thinking about implementing a once-a-week “Breakfast for Dinner” at home for me and Jay. It’d give me a chance to experiment with some new breakfast recipes.
**Thanks so much for all your suggestions & requests from this morning’s “Call for Reader’s Requests!” Keep ‘em comin’…I love hearing them!
