Food of the week

One of the things I miss are waffles. Yea I can get waffles here, but are they the same? Nope. You call them Belgium Waffles.. I call them American .. haha.. I grew up with this recipe, which may not differ much from the Belgium and/or American recipe. I think the difference is however that I do add *some* sugar to the batter and that *I don't* use syrup. I use powdered sugar.. and while still sugar in a weird-funky way find this option healthier than syrup which appears to have *more* sugar.. and in reality is simply too sweet for me. 

Anyway, the other day when I set up in Kent Store - they had this huge yard sale that benefits their community (awesome!) and this is found where I found a waffle iron for ... $1.00. Couldn't pass it up I was not leaving it there... nope
