Garage sale season is in full swing. One of our favorite things is when an entire neighborhood chooses to hold a sale. Then we can just park our bikes, or our cars, and walk from house to house as we search for goodies.
Recently, we rode our bicycles down to nearby Marquette. It was a beautiful, sunny day and lots of items called out to us from driveways and grassy lawns. And then we found it! A waffle maker. Plum had been asking for a waffle maker for quite some time but the we just couldn’t justify the expense. At $1 and a reassurance from the seller that it worked perfectly (not always a guaranty), we picked up a Toastmaster Belgian Waffler – directions included!
We’d never made waffles from scratch. We searched out a recipe for the batter and then greased and warmed up our waffler. Around 3 minutes after pouring in the batter, our first waffle was ready. Delicious!
A simple garage sale find has allowed us to expand our breakfast offerings, to the particular delight of our Plum. We can’t wait to experiment with all sorts of waffle variations.
