Make your everyday breakfast a perfect Fall breakfast with these Pumpkin Waffles!

Pumpkin WafflesDuring the fall these pumpkin waffles are a treat we love! They are made with pumpkin puree and pumpkin  pie spices! What’s not to love? Pumpkin Waffles

Halloween is over but pumpkin season stays around for awhile. I really love Halloween but I  think when Halloween falls on a weekday, the following day should be a National Holiday! Okay…so maybe not a holiday for everyone, but it should be a mandatory holiday for schools! Just think about what it’s like the day after Halloween at an elementary school….the kids are tired….they are crashing from a HUGE sugar high….and then if your school is really lucky….it’s a rainy inside recess day!  Yikes! Could it get any worse? Hmmmm….I guess we could have had a full moon!

It’s going to take our school a week to recover from the day after Halloween. I wish I could stay home the rest of the week, curled up on the couch in front of the fire with a plate full of these pumpkin waffles! Ahhhhhh……that thought brings me happiness! 🙂

    A Monday Halloween is rough!! Especially with last night’s World Series game, too (zzzzz). And I say that as a person who doesn’t have kids! These waffles would certainly help me get through the day… But I’d much rather be eating them from my nice warm bed 🙂

      That game was amazing! It was a nail bitter right till the end! Definitely worthy of staying in bed all day….and munching on waffles!

    A national holiday after Halloween sounds like an awesome idea, Kathy. And these pumpkin waffles look so delicious. Weather is pretty cold and super stormy here and I wouldn’t mind eating these pumpkin waffles for my brunch. 🙂

    Haha! That sounds like a pretty rough day! I totally vote to make the day after Halloween a holiday. I feel the same when the Super Bowl rolls around, too. Why does it have to be Sunday…and at night?? I definitely would much rather curl up with a stack of these amazing looking pancakes instead! 🙂

    I’d like to cuddle up on the couch with a plate full of these waffles too Kathy. I’m so glad when fall comes because I adore pumpkin anything. Great idea to add to waffles! I’m thinking the day after Halloween should be a holiday too!
