Weekend Breakfast: Buttermilk Waffles

I have my go-to waffle recipe that I have pretty much memorized by now.  It’s quick and simple and I always have the items on hand.  My family are also big fans of  buttermilk pancakes.  They’re J’s favorite so I always have buttermilk in the fridge.  A person can only handle so many pancakes so I end up with extra buttermilk all the time.  Not wanting to waste it, I hit up Pinterest to see which buttermilk recipes were hot at the moment.  I took a test bite of the first waffle then pretty much ran into my room yelling at  my husband “hurry up and wake up! I made new waffles and they’re hella good.  Hurry!”  Seriously.  I’m kind of crazy like that.  Luckily, the entire family agreed and we have our new favorite waffle recipe.
