Wonderful Waffles

by Courtney on February 13, 2011

Sundays are good for so many things.

For example, breaking out the waffle maker…


And making a decadent batch of waffles!


I used a pancake/waffle mix that we’ve had in the cabinet for a while now to make the waffles. They were really simple – only needed to add water, egg, and a tbsp of oil.

But what made these waffles extra special were my toppings: sliced banana, chopped pecans, and a drizzle of light maple syrup. It was my attempt to recreate the similar combo that rocked my socks back in Las Vegas this past August. Not quite as good, but definitely delish! Smile


Jay opted out of today’s toppings…he clearly didn’t know what he was missing. Winking smile


I enjoyed my waffles with some coffee, of course. Smile


*And for those of you who have asked, my mug is actually from Kirkland’s, which Jay got for me for Christmas. I love Kirkland’s!!

After letting our waffles digest, Jay and I also took advantage of our free time on this Sunday to get our groove on… Winking smile


We had such a fun time dancing our faces off last weekend that we just had to go buy it. We battled out probably half a dozen songs this morning, and let me tell you…it really works up a sweat! Not to mention the fact that it’s great for providing some laughs. Smile

So since I was already sweaty after dancing, I figured I’d keep the sweat going, and did the Jillian Michael’s 6 Week Six-Pack Abs workout. I’m still sticking with my plan on doing this workout 3 times a week for the next six weeks…we’ll see how it goes!

Time to go shower up so Jay and I can head out for the day!

Question for the Day:

Waffles or Pancakes? Favorite combo??

I’m a pancake girl, but your waffles are making me hesitate! I can’t believe Jay passed on the toppings. He is clearly a madman!

Mmm I am not sure I can choose! Waffles are great because they have those little crispy crevices for the syrup to get trapped in, but pancakes like little sponges with the syrup. It’s a tie! Either way- through some chocolate chips in and I’m a happy girl!

Pancakes, if they’re pumpkin or have chocolate chips in them…yummm
But I do love a good Belgian waffle with extra whipped cream!

The toppings make all the difference in the world!!

I don’t think I could pick between waffles or pancakes–both are delish!

I am more of a pancake girl…. blueberry pancake girl. Those waffles look amazing! Great choices on the toppings!


17 Karen February 13, 2011 at 8:11 pm

I love both but I would probably choose waffles over pancakes. I love how the crevices on waffles can fill up with the wonderful toppings!

I love both, but I do prefer waffles ;). I mostly go for pancakes at home & waffles when I eat out :).
