Waffles!

Yesterday was good day. I stepped on the scales and it revealed that I had finally lost 50 lbs! Yay!!
I have been sitting on a 47lbs loss since November but finally dropped the extra three I wanted so I could claim a 50 lbs loss. Now I will just continue to maintain....but not today...

If you have been following my blog then you know that just a few days ago I mentioned wanting a waffle maker. Well....Yesterday when I got home from work, my husband greeted me at the door as he usually does. He had a look of anticipation on his face. As I looked across the kitchen, there it was, a box of waffle mix and a waffle iron. I was excited.

It just so happened that he came across this unused, brand new iron at his fathers estate. It was the clam style and not the flip kind but I didn't care. I could hardly wait to practice. So after supper, I cleaned the kitchen, did some laundry and took my shower. Then I headed to the kitchen for a nighttime snack...waffles!!!


These were my first attempt. Wasn't sure how much batter to use or how long to cook them. 


They did not turn out perfect as I was a little skimpy on both the mix and the timing.

Boy were they delicious! 


It was a great treat to celebrate my weight loss victory. I may even gain 3lbs back. But not for long....I hope.

My friend Anne said she cant wait to see what else ill try to make in this thing. She said shes made waffles with can biscuits. I'm sure that's good too! So, "Anne, I'm heading online to Pinterest for some more Ideas. You know me well".

  1. ahhh, your first waffles look AMAZING...I know they tasted fantastic...you can add bacon pieces (in the packages from the groc store)...pecan waffles will bring you to your knees...cranberries or strawberries or blueberries...you can add just about anything you love and they will be delicious.
    Waffles are one of my favorite things in the world....spread a little peanut butter and honey on one and go right over the moon....xo

  5. Hey! What do you know, I'm famous. I was mentioned in your blog!😎
    So glad for your achievement! You rock! As stated by BJ above, we love waffles smeared with a little peanut butter. They freeze well so you can grab just one in the morning. Good luck finding inspiration, if anyone can find a lower calorie way to make these it will be you. Can't wait to read all about it.

  8. Well done. : ) They look delicious. I've found that a quarter cup batter works good in mine. I think I'm going to make some for my breakfast tomorrow.
