…because a bachelorette party isn’t complete without waffles!*

2013-01-18 - AVK Summer Waffles - 0002

In honor of the return of Parks and Recreation last week, Shane and I made waffles. Actually, he made waffles while I supervised from the couch. Mostly this consisted of me pointing out the gross amount of batter spillage coming out the rear of the waffle iron and spit-balling ideas for a leak-proof waffle maker. He may have had his headphones on at the time, so it’s quite possible that I was talking to myself. Whatever, managing is hard work!

Also, the timing of waffles and DVRed Parks and Rec was totally coincidental, but the post title struck my fancy so there you go.

So anywho, these are the Summer Waffles with Lemon Sauce from American Vegan Kitchen.

(“Summer” waffles served on autumnal dinnerware and photographed on a table decorated for Christmas – yup, that about sums it up. Quite fittingly, the only season that’s missing is spring, whose arrival seems an impossibility come January. Curse you Midwestern winters!)

The waffle recipe is pretty basic I guess; it’s hard to say, since we don’t make waffles all that often. (See: our crappy waffle gadget.) But the sauce is different! Basically just lemon juice mixed with powdered sugar, it seems like it’d be just as at home on a plate of sugar cookies as a stack of breakfast foods! It’s very similar to icing, is what I’m saying. Unlike traditional syrups, it sits on top of the waffles instead of soaking into them. If you like your waffles crunchy, you should totally give it a try.

* Penis-shaped, of course.
