Ah waffles. I finally got my waffles. When I did my last grocery order, which I really only do about every month or two, I ordered Eggo waffles. But when the guy came with the groceries, he said they didn’t have any waffles. I thought it was weird and I was telling someone about it when they told me something had been wrong with all the Eggo waffles. Weird.
So at school we had waffles one morning and I’ve wanted them ever since. When I did my grocery order yesterday, there still weren’t any Eggo waffles, but I was able to get the store brand.
So my groceries were scheduled to be delivered today between one and three and all I could think about were the waffles. Tick tock. Tick tock. Finally they came at a quarter to three. I put all my groceries away and then stuck two waffles in the toaster. It might have been too close to dinner but I didn’t care. We don’t usually eat until six or seven on Fridays anyway.
So at school, the syrup came in this little dish. I didn’t want to deal with trying to eat messy syrupy food with silverware. I’ve eaten pancakes a few times and they’re a pain in the butt and very sticky. So at school, I just ripped off pieces and dipped them in the syrup. The only thing missing was butter.
So today I decided to put a dollup of butter and some syrup in a little dish and heat it up to dip my waffles in. I got too much syrup so I didn’t taste much of the butter, but man it was good. And not messy at all. I find now that I’m blind, anything I can make into finger food is sooooo much easier to eat. So I thought I’d share that little hint. I bet it works with pancakes too. 🙂 Oh and at Chili’s, they have chicken fried chicken fingers you can dip in country gravy. It satisfies my craving for chicken fried steak quite nicely. Now if only they’d make chicken fried steak fingers…
