Pumpkin Waffles

I think I have mentioned before that Tim loves pumpkin!  When I stumbled upon this recipe for pumpkin waffles, I knew I had to give them a try.  They were perfect for a chilly November morning.  In fact, we loved them so much that after we finished eating, I prepared another batch to freeze.

Not to go all Sandra Lee on you, but I wanted to address the “semi-homemade” tag that I use.  If a recipe calls for a baking mix, pre-made dough, or other prepared ingredient, etc… I tag it semi-homemade.  Examples of these items include:  Bisquick {used in this recipe}, cake and brownie mixes, canned biscuits and crescent rolls, canned/jarred sauces, etc.  I do try to make as many recipes from scratch as possible, but I think using the occasional short cut is totally fine.  Making it semi-homemade is still better than totally store-bought or restaurant take-out in my opinion.
