Recently, the band director at the high school was placed in ICU at the local hospital, and while he is doing much better, we have no idea when he will return to work. That leaves my husband, the assistant band director, working harder than he has in years but he does not complain. Starting each day with a bowl of cold cereal, he works all day and on some days, all night. One Saturday morning, I decided to surprise him with a Pub Waffle Sandwich on Aunt Jemima Frozen Waffles.
This was going to be a colossal breakfast. One that would remind him of how much he loves me.
Since this weekend was the twelfth anniversary of the night he took me to Battleship Park to confess his love for me (and I hugged him, accidentally knocking his hot chocolate into Mobile Bay) I needed a way to show him that I still love him too.
Lucky for me, Publix had the Aunt Jemima Frozen Waffles on sale as a buy one, get one free. Plus, the Aunt Jemima Frozen Waffles have #4MoreWaffles than their competitor.
I love shopping at Publix, and I love saving money!
If the BOGO sale is over at Publix, you can still save by printing a $1 off coupon. Go ahead and do it now so you will not forget. I will wait…
Done? Okay, back to the story.
Despite having a few sick kids in the house, I was able to slip away to the kitchen and get everything started while my husband was playing with the children in the boy’s room. I loved the melodious sounds of laughter that floated down the hall as I cooked.
He isn’t just a great husband; he is also an awesome Dad.
Once the Pub Waffle Sandwich was ready, I called him to the kitchen. Because mealtimes can be boisterous (read: LOUD) in our home, I sent him out to the front porch to enjoy a peaceful breakfast on a perfect morning.
After the first bite, he looked at me and asked, “Where did you get this recipe?”
I told him that I created the Pub Waffle Sandwich myself… and there it was… that gleam of appreciation that said he was so happy to be married to me.
He replied, “This is amazing! It’s like one of those sandwiches where visitors come from out of town to the city and ask for a reference on where to eat. People tell them that they MUST try the Pub Waffle Sandwich.”
Oh Lawd. Please don’t come to my house for breakfast! But if you do, call ahead so I can stuff my piles into a closet, get a shower, and put some pants on.
Perhaps it would be a better idea for you to just try it out for yourself, and if you need more fantastic ideas for using Aunt Jemima Frozen Waffles for an amazing breakfast, follow them on Pinterest.
