Sweet Potato Waffles with Candied Pecans and Brown Sugar Icing

    Some mornings living your life like every day is a vacation means waking up in a bed and breakfast.  
    Except in a real bed and breakfast I don’t think there would be a angry yet happy cat jumping on my bladder and mewing.
    Just because I did not actually wake up on vacation today at a bed and breakfast where I don’t have to deal with cleaning up empty beer bottles from last nights Cohen Brothers movie fest and a sink full of dishes, does not mean I can not eat like I am at a bed and breakfast.
   I’m going to make Sweet Potato Waffles and eat them on my balcony in the forest.
   Than I’ll go for a off road hike/ creek adventure for a few hours before my work day begins.,
   Happy Friday to me!
