Tonight for dinner I made waffles, using the waffle iron I got at the thrift store a couple of weeks ago, for under $4. My mom occasionally made homemade waffles, and so does my stepmom, but I’ve never made them myself because up until now I didn’t have a waffle maker.
I served them topped with strawberries, a dusting of powdered sugar, and whipped cream. I also gritted my teeth and splurged on real maple syrup, which I haven’t purchased in a while because the prices got so high; some members of the family went hogwild and used all the toppings at once, as you can see above.
I used this Whole Grain Waffles recipe from allrecipes.com. They were delicious and crispy, and I doubled the recipe so I have some to put in the freezer for easy breakfasts. I highly recommend picking up a waffle iron at a thrift store or garage sale if you don’t already have one!
