I hate breakfast in bed. I will happily get out of bed, eat breakfast and then go back to bed but I do not want the challenge of balancing a tray on my bed full of sticky food and hot coffee. If it spills I know I will have to do at least some clean up and that is just not worth it. If you like feeling like an invalid and want to eat in bed, then have at it, but I am firmly on #TeamBreakfastAtTables.
I wouldn’t say I’m a waffle aficionado, but I really love waffles. I tolerate pancakes, but I would eat waffles with whipped cream and strawberries every single day of the week. Since I love them so much, when they are served and they are not up to snuff I am deeply disappointed. I think I almost cried one morning when we went out and I ordered the ‘English Waffles’. These were waffles that were supposed to have English custard and fruit on top. What I got was most cantaloupe and few berries and the custard was a lumpy, gritty slop. I scraped the custard off along with the disgusting cantaloupe, which I think smells rotten and tastes like it smells, and dipped the pathetic excuse for a waffle into the Cool Whip type crap that was on the side. Even if the waffle is so-so, if they had served strawberries that had been frozen, and thawed, and whipped cream I would have been happy.
A note on the ingredients. I use Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Flour, which is available in most large grocery stores in our area (Southern Ontario). The buckwheat flour I used is light buckwheat flour which I bought at a local health food store. I also have regular buckwheat flour (Bob’s Red Mill brand) that I bought at a Fresh Co which is a cheaper grocery store. That buckwheat flour is kind of a grey colour which results in a darker waffle but still quite nice. It would be comparable to using a very fine whole wheat in place of all purpose flour.
