Welcome to the new year, 2013. I hope you had a good New Year’s Eve and that you will have a wonderful new year. May all you wish for come true and that you stay healthy and happy.

We were invited to a New Year’s Eve party, which was also a potluck. Honestly, I had not much inspiration so I wanted to do something simple. Deviled eggs fall definitely under that category.

Waffles

Mini waffle tower.

Waffles are an American staple, just like pancakes, for breakfast. This is a bit unusual for us Germans because we only eat waffles for dessert once in a blue moon and on the Christmas Market. Frankly, I don’t recall having waffles unless it was at the Christmas Market.

But, if you are in Rome do as the Romans, in this case, do as the Canadians when in Canada. Since we found a 4 in one (sandwich, grill, griddle, waffle plates) at Walmart the other day I though I should make some waffles soon. My husband is certainly not opposed to the idea and so I whipped up something today while talking to family back home.
