Heart food........


It is Monday, and another busy week has started. My husband and youngest daughter came home last night after the week-end away for a family occasion, I am leaving with the night train tonight, coming home tomorrow night by plane (work), my husband will be travelling with the night train tomorrow night (more work). This is our life :-)
Living this busy life, which we love and which gives us so much, makes it important to take care of the moments, take care of "living here and now". And tonight is one of those.
It has been snowing, but milder weather has come, and the wet snow is fun to play in. Marta has been out in the garden making a huge Mr. Snowman, and when she came in she was red cheeked and hungry. I had some leftover cream and sour cream (fløte and rømme) in the fridge, and decided to make "vaffler" ,a favorite comfort food which we haven't had in a long time.
I am sorry that I don't have any spesific recipe, but I have made waffles since I was just a tiny little girl and never ever had any written instructions. I simply beat 3-4 eggs, melt butter, add milk, white flour, a little salt, a little sugar, rømme or/and fløte if I happen to have, and blend it all together. They I bake, or do you say fry (?) it, in a waffle iron. An electric one at home, an old iron one at the cabin.
Today we ate the waffles warm with vanilla and chocolate ice cream, and with cheary chatting between mother and two daughters (dh is at a handball meeting)

Love waffles! I've not had them with ice cream before, though--must try! Happy Days! :o)

see you there! said...

Waffels, yum! I love the heart shape too. I've seen waffel pans for those in the kitchen stores here. That may have to go on my wish list.

see you there! said...

Guess I'd better learn to spell WAFFLE before I go looking for a pan.

I haven't had enough coffee yet this morning.

Waffles used to be our traditional Saturday night dinner when I was growing up. My Dad always made them and they were topped with vanilla ice cream and crushed strawberries. I think I'll make waffles for our breakfast this morning.

I've never had them with ice cream either, which seems odd since ice cream is often served in a crispier waffle cone. I must try this!

My family loves the thick Belgian waffles. Enough about food, you have the loveliest assortment of dishes! I love the plate pictured and those blue and white dishes you have.
