Labor Day weekend, the traditional end of summer, is a good time to enjoy a relaxing family breakfast. With school about to start and schedules getting busy again, there might not be an opportunity to enjoy a leisurely morning meal together for some time.
Wedges of the flavorful melons now available in area markets will make a good beginning to the meal. Then kick off the fall season by featuring the flavors of apples and cider in Apple-Cinnamon Waffles With Cider Syrup. Bacon or sausage are good accompaniments.
