I really believe that we all need to give each other a break more often.
I had a rough week last week. Too busy. Too rough around the edges. Just too much. I was glad to be going away for a long weekend trip to see my best friend. Shoot, I’ve missed her so damn much since I last saw her at Christmas 2013. But it meant for a crazy week busting my butt to get things done for a design presentation on Friday.
So when things went *BOOM* on Thursday afternoon. I wanted to run into the bathroom and cry. But I didn’t, not because I was being strong or anything, but because I didn’t have the time.
We found out that I made a mistake on a project I have been working on. A dumb mistake. A mistake I normally wouldn’t make. But I did. I looked back at my time sheet and emails that week and figured out what happened. Not to make an excuse but to see how I let something so dumb slip through my fingers.
It had my nerves frazzled all weekend. It was the thing going on in the back of my head while we walked all over the city, drank amazing drinks, ate delicious food, and talked of the future. I didn’t sleep well, and it wasn’t just because of the time change.
It’s costing my company $6K to fix. What a mistake. UGH!!!!! In the grand scheme of cosmic (or even company) things it isn’t such a big deal but it has me all torn up. And I’m sure that it will for a really long time. I won’t make the same mistake again, I’ll be sure of it, but it still really stinks right now.
And that is why I think we all need to be nice to others. Give them a reassuring nod or wink when they look defeated. Hold the door open for them. Buy someone a coffee. Just think of when you have felt crappy and you needed a pick me up.
So that is why I made this Brownie Waffle Sundae. It’s the perfect pick me up for a crummy day. Or better yet, it’s a better way to end a great day.
Breakfast is always great for dinner. But breakfast for dessert is even better. I swear.
I used Krusteaz’s Gluten Free Brownie mix as I love Krusteaz’s mixes. I don’t use mixes often but they honestly are my go-to breakfast and dessert mixes for me. The brownie mix is a winner for gluten free folks. Plus, there have chocolate chips in it, which get the best sort of melty when baked in the waffle iron.
Enjoy the mashup of #BreakfastNight with #WaffleWednesday with this dessert. Or just eat it for dinner. I won’t judge!
Brownie Waffle Sundae
Makes 4-8 Sundaes, depends on your waffle iron & your sharing
- 1 Box Brownie Mix, plus ingredients needed according to box
- 1-2 Tablespoons water
- 1 pint ice cream, I suggest vanilla
- sauces such as hot fudge or caramel
- whipped cream
- other toppings like sprinkles, nuts, fresh fruit, and maraschino cherries
- Preheat your waffle iron.
- Make the brownie batter according to the directions on the box. Add 1-2 Tablespoons of water to thin it out a bit.
- Spray the waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray. Scoop out 1/4- 1/3 Cup batter into the waffle iron. Cook until the steam has stopped coming out from the sides of the waffle iron.
- Plate your waffles and add a scoop onto each waffle. Top off with all your favorite goodies! Enjoy 🙂
Krusteaz has provided me with all sorts of fun mixes to create waffle recipes in a collaboration of their #BreakfastNight and my #WaffleWednesday. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
