Crunch a Bunch Waffles

So if you haven't noticed by now I really really like crunchy things. After much contemplation I have officially decided it is my favorite texture...creamy, chewy, and soft etc. just don't make me as happy as crunchy does. If I ever own a cat I reckon I will call her "Crunchy". I also like fall leaves...maybe there is a connection there...maybe not. My mom is on a diet and for some strange reason every time she loses weight I gain it. For the life of me I don't know why...I think the evil fat monster just wants to stay in the family and so he shifts from my thighs to hers. Darn the monster. So this morning as she sat there eating her sad little 1 egg, 1 slice of calorie free/ taste free toast with no butter, and 6 grapes...I decided to make peppered bacon, stormy eggs, and waffles...oh and I also had a bushel of grapes...but that isn't relevant to the story because they are healthy. What may you ask are "stormy eggs"? Well folks, I don't like sunny side up eggs, but I also don't like the yolk completely cooked I start off by making a sunny side up egg and then flipping it and breaking the yolk totally on purpose...thus I give you the stormy egg. There isn't much to say about these waffles except they are da bomb diggity. As I made these waffles this morning on my waffle Iron I remembered where I got this appliance. On my 21st birthday my wonderful friends Marie and Cathy surprised me with a basket of syrup, waffle mix, and a waffle iron...that was a happy day and it made these waffles all that more awesome!

  1. yummy, Dagny!!! I'm asking for a 'flip' waffle iron for my birthday in a few weeks, I will DEFINITELY be making these. I've had a craving for waffles for a few weeks and I've had to settle for the frozen kind you stick in the toaster or microwave :-(

  2. I got my FLIP waffle iron... going to make those waffles tonight i think... i'll let you know how they come out haha

  3. Let me know how they turn out. I love them, make them all the time now! If I have a bad day at work or school I make them for dinner : )
