On this special edition of The Sunday Brunch we are joining with folks around the world to make Mental Health a priority. We have a special video message from Pastor Mic, a blog from a good friend Joe Webb, a brand new book brunch and Sunday playlist as well as Dad's Famous Waffles and Homemade Maple Pecan Whipped Cream for this week's Brunch. Check it out:
Depression and suicide: what you need to know and what you can do. Depression is a common mental health condition. For some people depression is mild and short-lived; for others, it is more severe and longer-term. Some people are affected only once; others more than once.
At worst, depression can lead to suicide. There is a lot that can be done, however, to prevent and treat depression and to help people who are thinking about suicide.
The short documents posted below provide information about depression and suicide and guidance on prevention and treatment.
Dad's Famous Waffles and Homemade Maple Pecan Whipped Cream
I (Mic) made these last Sunday and they were a huge hit with the kiddos and I even think I impressed Lindsay. If I can do this you can too.
What You Need:
Pre-Made Waffle Mix (I used the Kroger Brand)
Heavy Whipping Cream
Sugar Free Maple Pecan Coffee Syrup
Spray your waffle iron with cooking spray and turn it to your desired setting.
Start mixing your pre-made waffle mix together (Follow the instructions on the Box). Make sure you get most of the lumps out - you don't want flour pockets in your waffles (YUCK!).
When your waffle iron is ready pour on your mix and evenly distribute it over the iron while making sure you don't add to much as it will overflow. Now depending on how you like your waffles is how long you leave them on. We like ours crunchy so we leave them on a little longer than normal. Once they are done place them on plates and get ready for the best part!
Next up the homemade whip cream. Pour about a half cup of heavy whipping cream into a mixing bowl. If you have a stand alone mixer - kick that baby on high and let her do the work. If you just have a hand mixer then you will have to help it out. Mix it till it starts getting that fluffy whipped cream look. Now ad about 2 teaspoons of the maple pecan coffee syrup and then mix until it looks like a cloud of whipped cream goodness.
Put a PLOP (or Two!) on top of the Waffles and add a sprinkle of cinnamon. Next you can add your favorite syrup and Dig In!
