I'm Waffling

Hubby and I had a Gift Card from Christmas 2010,
It was burning a hole in our pocket.  

Stopped on the way home from lunch today and spent it.  
Bought something frivolous.
After all it was a Christmas Gift.

What do ya think?


Yes, it is a Waffle Iron. 
You're surprized, aren't ya.
But, there you go.  We splurged !


DD Debbie told me of an easy way to make
waffles.
No fuss, no muss.

A quick prep and we're ready to go.



 A quick spray.


Pop 'em on a hot iron.


Voilá, dinner.


All it took was
buying a Waffle Iron
and
one of these .  .  .

Yep, I'm waffling.
Thanks, sweet Debbie for this wonderful recipe.

  2. Now I'm going to have to add 'whomp' biscuits to my market list so I can try this!
    My guy's like fried chicken and waffles for dinner so we make waffles at least once or twice a month.
    Have a great time in the kitchen!

    1. Whomp biscuits?
      We had fun shopping for this iron and was wondering if and what these would turn out like. We were pleased :*)

    2. 'Whomp biscuits' are biscuits from a can because that is the sound they make when you hit the side of the container on the counter top. For the life of me I can't remember which comedian did a speal about it. :)

    3. LOL ! LOL !
      Tracey, this is funny 'cause that's exactly the sound ! ! !

      Yikes! I picked up a can of cinnamon biscuits in a can on the way home. Hope they don't stick. What a mess that would be. Fingers crossed.

  3. YUM! I had two waffle irons and got rid of them both when we moved because it's so much work to make waffles (and then clean the darn thing). But now I wish I'd kept one! Using the biscuits is such a great idea!

  5. Thanks for sharing your unique way of making waffles. I often wonder who thinks of these clever ideas.
    DH makes waffles several times a week from our own special mix of whole grain ingredients that I make up in big quantity. We eat them with maple-flavored syrup and peanut buttter. YUMMY!

      These whomp waffles serve their purpose :*)

      Alas, no more waffles.

    1. Evelyn, we used it again tonight.
      We tried the cinnamon roll Grands biscuits.

      Must remember to lower the number for shading :*)

  9. Ok...so I just got the hubs a waffle iron for his birthday and now need to know what the "prep" is for those AND the cinnamon waffles...

    1. Isn't blogging and quilting the greatest for making new friends.
      Great to meet cha.
      My new iron said that the first time it's fired up it may smoke buy not to worry - perhaps a spray of oil may be a good idea. That was it for first time use.
      So We Whomped open the can of biscuits, sprayed them with Pam [instead of spray and over spraying the iron]. Once the iron was hot, Plop went four biscuits on the iron and that was it.
      Daughter said she puts the fifth biscuit from the small can of Grands in the very center of the iron.
      Voilá
      Now the cinnamon - hmmmm, unless you want the smoke alarm to go off you'll want to turn the shading down to a low number.
      These we spray with Pam and then feasted upon goodness.

    1. Love when you visit, sweet Maggie. Your journal/blog is a main-stay in my daily reads. You're such a sweet, caring gal. With many surprizes thrown in.
      If you have a waffle iron, just plock a can of biscuits in your shopping next time - given 'em a try. You, no doubt will dream up yet another reason to cook these up.

  14. Guess who had a few minutes this early morning to blog hop.....
    And what a fun post to find! But how in the world did you keep a gift card for so long? Cool thing to spend it on and cooler way to use it:) Enjoy your weekend.

    1. Vicki, that's what indecision will do. We hemmed and haa-ed about what to get with it and before you know it months had past.
      Household appliances aren't my favorite items to shop for, but in this case we just had to give Daughter Debbie's hint a try.
      We used the iron three days in a row.
      Calories ! ! ! ! ! !
