It’s time for the end of the month recipe! And a book, of course!
I love breakfast foods any time of day. Because it’s easy, my go-to weekday breakfast is cold cereal, but on the weekends or at a restaurant I love waffles, pancakes, omelets, biscuits, French toast, eggs benedict and whatever else might look interesting.
So I loved this book! Doesn’t everyone want a waffle?
Wood Pecker Wants a Waffle
By Steve Breen
Benny the woodpecker wakes to the delicious smell of waffles coming from the grand opening of Moe’s-Home of the Waffle Breakfast. He tries various funny ways to gain entrance into the Moe’s, but they all fail. The animals gather as he is wishing for waffles. They think it’s silly for a woodpecker to eat waffles. But Benny replies, “why not?” At first the animals don’t have an answer, but finally Bunny said, “because I said so.” To which Benny replies, “I really don’t have time for this ‘said so’ nonsense.” Don’t all kids feel that way sometimes! Benny shares an elaborate plan to get the waffles involving, cannons, juggling and fireworks. But when the animals show up at Moe’s to see Benny in action he isn’t there. Or is he? When the people in the dinner come out to see the animals, Benny sneaks in and finds some “sweet” waffles!
I know you’re thinking-
But I’m a pumpkin anytime kind of girl!
