Let every good morning be a good waffle morning!
This blog post was inspired by my grandson, who introduced me to the joys of waffles and Lord Garmadon. Every morning, we both would sit at the dining table, read books, laugh at silly riddles, and munch on waffles soaked in maple syrup , as blue berries would play truant with his fork and Masters of Spinjitzu would take centre stage. There was laughter and Ninjago every where!
These waffles are quite easy to make at home. You can incorporate a variety of fruits to make for a complete, wholesome breakfast. Also, waffles are not just for breakfast, they can be tweaked into delectable desserts too!Get creative.
