I woke up veryyyy excited to try out one of my wedding presents — a waffle maker! Can you guess who gave me a waffle maker?…. Yup, Meghann! Who, ironically, had waffles for breakfast this morning. 🙂
However, I am a bit of a waffle newbie. In fact, I don’t believe I’ve ever made my own waffles! This morning, I used my Hodgson’s Mills Insta Bake Mix (which is what I make pancakes with) and followed the instructions on the back for waffle mix.
I wasn’t sure how much mix to add to the waffle maker…
Whoops — guess that was TOO much waffle mix!
I also wasn’t sure whether I could eat 1 waffle or 2. They seemed quick thick (must have been all that extra batter)… but they were so golden and sweet-smelling!
This maker created perfectly formed honeycombs… mmm crunchy!
On the side, some maple syrup for dipping….
And sliced melon…
I only ended up eating one of the waffles, but Maggie and James got the rest! Spoiled little doggies.
Plans for today include: running, cleaning the house, (its a disaster) and buying new running shoes!! As I mentioned last month, I have been wearing the same pair of sneakers since July 2007! I did buy a new pair in October but they only irritated my knee problems, and we financially could not afford two new sneakers right before the wedding.
So, YAY for new kicks! I need them.
What are your plans for the day?
My plans for today are to go to the horse sales to watch a rare horse sell, then a new friend is bringing her pup over to play with mine! Oh, and I am trying to stay warm. It’s 20 degrees here in Kentucky… MUCH warmer than the past two days, but still cold for a native Texan!
