“Mom, could I have another funnel cake?”

“Mom, I ate two of those funnel cakes yesterday, could I have another?”

Oh yea, Supermom here decided to go thrifty and whip up some funnel cakes for breakfast last week. Our family went to Knott’s Berry Farm Saturday night and we really wanted to get a funnel cake. But theirs are almost $10! For fried flour and whipped cream and fruit jam!? Okay I’ll give them some credit-they are incredible plates of fried flour and whipped and fruit jam.

But…I made ’em better (blows on fingernails and rubs on shoulder). I made these with whole wheat! Yep, and they were kick butt delicious! Oh yea, I also made some bomb-diddly-omb (I like to make up words) Blueberry Compote to smother on top of them with the whipped cream. It was pure breakfast heaven.
