lucky me! i got a waffle iron for christmas. in fact, i gave c's brother a waffle iron for christmas, and he gave me a waffle iron, too! not so much a coincidence, when i discovered that c suggested the gift to both of us. still, happy day, indeed, since i've always wanted one.
the real tragedy is that we waited until yesterday to use it. how i lived without my own homemade waffles is beyond me. it's something i never order when i go out to eat (except when in belgium, but that's another store and another waffle altogether), but i'm sure happy to eat them at home.
i suppose it's the beaten eggs whites that make them so light and fluffy. honestly, though, i don't care what it is. i just want to eat them.
they were delicious topped with fresh berries and maple syrup. and the one leftover waffle today was great toasted with a little blackberry jam. mmmmm...
