Waffles! [Aug. 28th, 2008|03:50 pm]
Verminius Rex
Yesterday I got a waffle iron, ours dated back 13 years and was a wedding gift. The indicator light no longer worked (or was even there), it dripped and made a mess, and I just wanted better. So I got a decent one that has that wonderful feature where it flips over (evens out air bubbles for a better texture and even browning), an actual on/off switch (as opposed to just being on after plugging in), temp control (although it'll usually be at 4), and both an on light and a done light plus alarm. Plus a drip pan, one of my favorite features after cleaning up after the old one so many times.

For the after school snack I made waffles for the kids. We are cutting out dairy in Kiyan's diet to see if it helps with some unpleasant side effects, so I made a batch with soymilk and a regular batch for comparison. The soymilk batch turned out quite well, which made me feel better after realizing that I may have to cut Kiyan out of the usual weekend breakfast treats of pancakes and waffles.

The waffle itself is very nice, with deep cells, a crisp exterior and tender but done interior. Yum. The leftovers are cooling before being frozen for later breakfasts/snacks (they warm up well in the toaster oven).

Waffles rock.

Mmmm...now I want waffles. I totally have a waffle iron, too. Maybe Saturday morning will be waffle morning!

We typically have pancakes (and sometimes French toast) for breakfast on Sunday. Waffles would be nice to throw into the mix. I just am not sure where I would store the waffle maker. My cabinet of countertop appliances is full.

I laugh only because I have so little room to store appliances, and your kitchen is so much larger. Right now the waffle iron is on top of the crock pot on a shelf with all sorts of other stuff.
