Breakfast and Bites Around the Blogosphere

Day 150.

Yesterday, I got my very first fire ant bite since moving to Georgia almost a year ago. The little devil bit me on my Achilles tendon and it's been swelling, itching, and hurting ever since. Anyone have a home remedy for ant bites?

Here's a recipe for some yummy, healthier waffles to kick-start your Sunday. The cook up puffy, fluffy, and aromatic. Enjoy them with apple butter, honey, or maple syrup...or just by themselves.

Apple-Cinnamon Waffles

What You Need:
  • 2 cups flour (use all-purpose, whole wheat, or a combination of the two)
  • 2 Tbsp sugar (you can actually omit this entirely if you'd like!)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • dash of sea salt
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup apple sauce
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
How it's Done:
  1. Preheat your waffle iron.
  2. Meanwhile, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and spices.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat eggs with milk. Stir in applesauce.
  4. Combine dry ingredients and wet ingredients.
  5. Pour 1/3 cup batter onto a standard size waffle iron and cook as manufacturer suggests.

Those waffles look so good! I love the fact that you used applesauce instead of actual apples. You always make the best looking breakfasts!

I love the homeopathic remedy Apis Mellifica for bee and wasp stings and also use it for mosquito bites, which I am pretty allergic to so they go beyond itchy into pain. I don't know if it would work on an ant bite, but it's like a miracle for bee stings. I don't normally use homeopathy for anything else, but I always make sure I have a tube of Apis with me wherever I go.

Homeopathy goes by symptoms, and the some of the symptoms that indicate Apis would work are: Swelling or puffing up of various parts, edema, red rosy hue, stinging pains, soreness, intolerance of heat, and slightest touch, and afternoon worse are some of the general guiding symptoms.
