Saturday Chocolate Waffles- Charleston, SC Nicole Mendicino

Saturday Mornings are my favorite day of the week. Although my children still get up at 6:30am, it’s a nice break from rushing them to school and all that jazz.

Ryan makes waffles for them. I make the tea, its heaven.

This week Ryan decided to change up his recipe and make them Chocolate Waffles instead of just chocolate chip. I mean we have to have chocolate for breakfast at least once a week right? Is this normal? Well we have made it our ritual for sure.

The kids usually nab them so quick I don’t have time to take the pictures, so here is a glimpse into our Saturday mornings here in sunny Charleston.

Happy Weekend Friends!
