It’s Thursday – bring on the weekend, I say! After another round of sickness at our house, I’m ready to do a whole lot of absolutely nothing. Our second oldest started the week off with impetigo and then strep and this mama is absolutely tired of playing nurse. Again. It seems like that’s all I’ve done for the past two months and I’m pretty much over it.
And the sick kid? Well, tomorrow happens to be her seventh birthday so let’s hope she’s at school all day today and on the road to recovery so that she can celebrate. And what has our little carb queen decided to have for her birthday dinner? None other than a waffle bar featuring these Chocolate Chip Yogurt Waffles. I’m only happy to oblige as I can’t think of a better way to celebrate.
These Chocolate Chip Yogurt Waffles are a jazzed up version of the Yogurt Waffles I’ve shared with you before. I’d guess we enjoy them at least every other weekend as they truly are that good. It’s hard not to fall head over heels in love with waffles that are perfectly crisp on the outside but yet light and fluffy on the insides. And then, of course, when you provide bowls and bowls of various toppings for a waffle bar so that you can fully customize your creation? It’s pretty much the best thing every and earns me a big mama gold star each and every time it happens.

Here’s to seventh birthdays and your day being made because you get to have Chocolate Chip Yogurt Waffles for dinner. May we all take such pleasure in the little – and delicious! – things that life has to offer. Pile them high with your favorite toppings and simply enjoy.
SIDE NOTE: If you’re looking for an awesome waffle iron, I can’t tell you how much I love my double Belgian waffle maker. Not only is it non-stick which makes clean-up a breeze, but it also makes cooking waffles for our family of six so much quicker as I can make two at a time. I also love that it alerts you when your waffle has reached your desired doneness. No more constantly open and shutting the waffle iron to make sure your waffles are done to your liking!
