Today's Inspiration Workshop theme is
Spending the Day Playing
Recently we spent the day "playing" with our waffle iron. This past Father's Day my husband decided to take us on a culinary adventure (I'm so lucky that my guy loves the kitchen). He was inspired to try some recipes from Rachel Ray's waffle week, a reminder that waffles aren't just for breakfast and our waffle iron isn't just for waffles.
So we started the day with biscuits and gravy (I must admit we doctored her gravy recipe). We had ham and cheese wa-ninis for lunch (using the waffle iron as a panini press--my idea after reading different ideas). For dinner we had Wa-zones (waffle calzones). And for dessert we had brownies.
What a fun and yummy day! Now the brownies still need work (they ended up over done), but everything else was a big hit. If anything, it has inspired us to try making other stuff using the waffle iron. A very useful idea with the hot summer weather (no need to turn on the oven). I just made buttermilk spice mu-ffles (muffins) this morning and I really want to try some chocolate chip cookies. This is so much fun! You should try it!
