“You should eat a waffle! You can't be sad if you eat a waffle!”
- Lauren Myrcale
I was able to sleep in this Saturday for the first time in forever! It was so nice to wake up and not have to rush off somewhere. I stayed in bed, watched a 30 minute show, did a nice and stretchy ballet work out, and then decided it was most definitely a a waffle kind of day. I really don't like soggy, heavy waffles, so decided to see if I could find a "light and crispy" waffle recipe online. Usually when I make waffles at home I take them out of the waffle iron when they are cooked and I stick them into the toaster and crisp them up real good. Yum. Of course most of the time I end up eating burnt waffles because I don't pay attention to the the waffle toasting and instead get distracted by bacon. Oh bacon.
My 10 year old nice and I used to cook and bake a lot together, but we are both always so busy now we rarely cook together anymore. : ( Fortunately she was over this weekend and she helped me make the waffles. Her favorite part is pouring the batter into the waffle iron, closing it, waiting, and then voila minutes later a waffle appears. Such fun!
Do you have a waffle iron? We have 2. Our old school one is one that a few of us kids all chipped in money to buy this $40 waffle iron for my parents one year for Christmas. This was back in the day when chipping in $5 was a huge deal! Pretty sure my $5 invest has paid off seeing as I use the waffle iron the most out of everyone. My second waffle iron was a gift from friends in college for my 21st - pretty sure I told you about this one.
