Too busy - tired - hurting too badly to cook?

A cure for the "What To Cook For Supper" blues~

What to do when you're super busy, or too tired to cook, or hurting too badly to even think about the next meal, which happens to me frequently~:o) An easy meal, and one that kids usually like, is waffles (with an electric waffle maker so you can sit at the table to make & eat them) with toppings of mixed berries and whipped cream (using the frozen varieties of both).

I've used that for my busy/painful days for ages. All I have to do is get the berries & whipped cream thawed in time.

Since the berries are not sweetened, you can sweeten with your choice of sugar or a substitute. Sprinkle your choice of sweetener on top of the frozen berries, and allow them to thaw. And sit the frozen whipped cream/non-dairy whipped cream out to thaw, then go on with your day.

When it's time for supper, all you have to do is put out the beverages, napkins & silverware, sit the plates by the heating waffle iron on the table, and put the whipped cream & berries on the table. Then I stir up the waffle batter, sit myself down and start the waffles cooking.

Since it's just the two of us, and we prefer hot black coffee with this meal, I make the coffee a bit in advance and sit the caraft on the table for easy serving.

Guess what we are having for supper tonight? I an Not offering a prize for the correct guess since it's a pretty sure thing . . .
