Pecan Waffles

This is a really simple recipe but it was so good.
We wanted to try something different than just normal waffles... and we felt like pecans so

We used Krusteaz mix.
add 6 tablespoons of brown sugar
a handful of chopped pecans
per eight 4 inch waffles

Add any fruit that you want on top or just butter and syrup.
So yummy nice change for normal waffles.

Oh and I just realized that I put the numbers in the wrong order! That was the photographers problem not the calendars! :)

John and Emily Jones. John (a medical student at the University of Virginia) was exploring The Nutty Putty caves near Spanish Fork, UT during his Thanksgiving vacation when he got stuck in a 10"x14" space. Rescuers worked for 28 hours to remove him but could not and he passed away. He left behind his wife, Emily, their 14-month-old daughter and a baby on the way (due in June).

How 2

Tip: I bought the plastic wrapped hay wreaths. I was going to buy the normal styrofoam wreaths but these hay ones were a dollar!!! instead of 6+ dollars. I was wondering how the plastic and hay was going to react to hot glue but it worked great and stayed together.
PomPoms: Buy different sized pom poms not just one size. It adds wonderful texture!
Feathers: Make sure you glue feathers all going in the same direction it makes it look pretty and not like a messy chicken. And if you don't like the look of feathers spread out than tie a ribbon around it to keep feathers tight against the wreath.
Ribbons: It will probably look better if you by the styrofoam wreaths because you can lay the ribbon flat. It still looks good with the hey though. Also big ribbon is better than small and is much faster and looks great.
