Pumpkin-Ginger-Pecan Waffles

Since I’m in the middle of what I call “business trip-season”, I can’t make this week’s Sweet Melissa Sunday (yummy Fallen Chocolate Souffle Cake) or Tuesdays With Dorie (a Chocolate Souffle, imagine that!).

Instead, I offer you a little Fall treat… Pumpkin-Ginger-Pecan Waffles. See, starting in January, I weirdly count down the days until Fall begins. It’s my favorite season – I love the smells, the sights, the holidays, Horned Frog football and the cool weather. Ahhh yes… the weather.

And you can bet that when September 1st rolls around, I will have an Iced Venti Pumpkin Spice Latte (decaf, nonfat, no whip, please!) in my right hand. It’s a tiny addiction, but what can I say? It is what it is.

So, with Fall on my mind, I arrived home from work and opened up this month’s Country Living to find this little gem… the Pumpkin-Ginger Waffle. Admittedly, I went straight to the kitchen and made these for dinner (who doesn’t like breakfast for dinner once in a while?). I also changed it up a bit and added pecans… which took them over the top. You know, I think I might even like these better than Chocolate Waffles (for shame!).

Oh, yeah, I would rather see these than a chocolate dessert anytime, no complaints here! They look and sound wonderful. Happy business traveling.

What a fab flavor, especially for the coming months! I hope to make them soon!

Oh, these sound fantastic! Fall is my favorite season too. The first cool snap we get sends me into to pumpkin bread baking mode.

If this is an option for dinner I will pass up chicken anytime.

These look awesome! Can’t wait for more fall weather around my parts so that I can cook more with pumpkin! I’ll probably go ahead and start soon anyway.
