Happy International Waffle Day

This morning we heard on the news that it is International Waffle Day.  Later, when I asked Mr. SS what he wanted for breakfast he said "Waffles, of course."
I'm sure he had in mind something like this:
or this:
When we moved into our RV small cottage, I had to make some choices of what appliances I could bring. When it came to toaster or waffle iron...well the toaster won hands down.  I keep toaster waffes in the freezer for the grandkids, so this is what Mr.SS got for breakfast.
Ya know what??  He loved them and asked if he could have them tomorrow too.
Why did I always think I had to make the from scratch kind for him with the beat to fluffy egg whites in them when these were just fine.
I really do have the sweetest Mr.SS.
And making the frozen toaster waffles left me more time to blog babysit, sew, clean and do laundry today.

Silly me blogging about waffles...but Happy International Waffle Day anyway.
Heck, we could have waffles for dinner too. Hmmmm.

Some trivia I learned about
International Waffle Day- March 25th
Waffle Day is a day that you can waffle on issues and decisions. And, it certainly is a day to eat waffles.
This holiday originated in Sweden. It is called Våffeldagen. The holiday coincides with the Feast of the Annunciation. This day was also considered the start of spring in Sweden and Europe. It became a custom for Swedish families to celebrate the two events by making waffles on this day.
The origin of the waffle: The waffle dates back to the 1300s in Greece. Greeks cooked flat cakes between two metal pans. At the time, they topped it with cheeses and herbs. Pancake syrup wasn't around back then.
Waffles are commonly eaten as breakfast or a snack. They are also an occasional dinner meal for some people.

Bill fixes me a low fat bran waffle every morning while I read my blogs in bed. Try them. Same Eggo brand but so much better than the regular kind.

Love your humor and the funny words you strike out. But I think you know a wee bit too much about waffles (: blessings to you and Mr. SS
