If the extended family is together for breakfast, you might as well make waffles. I love my overnight raised waffle recipe for times like this.
I even had whole milk for a splurge. I substitute oil for the butter and use one cup whole wheat flour. It's easy to mix up the night before and add eggs and soda in the morning. You can leave it out overnight or put it in the fridge. In a container big enough for it to expand.
Light dawns in the darkness for the upright; he is gracious, merciful, and righteous. It is well with the man who deals generously and lends; who conducts his affairs with justice. For the righteous will never be moved; he will be remembered forever. He is not afraid of bad news; his heart is firm, trusting in the LORD. Psalm 112:4-7 ESV
