Classic Waffles

Today marks the one week anniversary or weekaversary of my first earthquake. Last week at 10:30 pm, I was making a batch of cookies (who would have guessed) and the ground started to rumble. It felt like a big truck was rolling right past my house. It lasted for about 7 seconds. It was a doozy at 3.3 on the Richter Scale.  It was rather exciting! What does that have to do with today’s post? Nothing. I guess I could come up with some thin link between the earthquake and waffles, but that’s too much effort. So here we go. Waffles. I love ’em. These waffles were one of the first things I mastered before I knew words like chiffonade or hollandaise. I still use this recipe even though I now have countless hours of Food Network viewing under my belt. The original recipe came from my neighbor Koleen. We used a lot of her recipes growing up because she is a fantastic cook. And she is also a really fantastic lady. She and her husband could win the award for “Nicest People in the Entire World.” And her waffle recipe is award worthy as well. Waffles with Syrup Can I just say, I am so in love with this photo!  I made waffles for breakfast and wanted to get a quick pic. I needed a little help with the staging and asked my kids. They were both eager to be a part of it. That’s The Wrecking Ball in his “Light’ Queen” jammies pouring the syrup. When I first got set up and announced I needed some help, my daughter said while tapping one finger on her lip, “I know exactly what this needs.” This is what it needed. Waffles If you can’t see what she added to the photo, look again. It is exactly was I had been thinking. She was a little disappointed when I explained that I really just needed some help pouring syrup. The Wrecking Ball was more than happy to do that job. He could not stand far enough away to keep himself out of the photo. And when I looked at the photos, it made me happy to see his jammies in there. I use this as a go-to for breakfast and when we have breakfast for dinner (which is often). Can I give you a waffle cutting tip for kids? I hate cutting things up for my kids. It is so tedious. A pizza cutter makes this job way easier. Just swipe, swipe, swipe, swipety swipe swipe and done. I use it for waffles, pancakes, german pancakes, french toast and of course pizza. Hooray for waffles!
