Waffles and Tea

Today I thought I would talk about The Food.

I like leftover waffles

(not to be confused with frozen waffles you buy at the store).

Waffles taste best fresh and crispy hot from the griddle,

but the next best thing is retoasted, hot from the toaster.

They have the decadence of a donut with the abilities of bread to make a sandwich.

The little squares hold liquids so you can bite into a waffle sandwich

and not have everything run out.

That's peanut butter and honey in my sandwich above.


Which tastes very good with tea, and isn't that what we're all about today?

Yes, yes, it can be washed down with coffee too, but perhaps for you coffee drinkers--

--you would prefer NUTELLA.

Please tell me that you've at least heard of it!

I live in the boonies and even I can find it at my local grocery store

(in both the small and large sized jars).

It's been advertised recently on TV, but I remember eating it as a kid.

(My mother did not care for the taste of peanut butter,

but loved hazelnuts).

I suppose we ate it on bread or toast

(this morning my son tried it on celery- not bad)

but I prefer it simply on a spoon.

Or occasionally on a waffle.

Tastes like a giant KitKat bar.


(raising teacup to clink with yours)

What's on your saucer today?

Nutella is really having a resurgence isn't it! I hated Ovaltine, btw. ha! Yummy looking waffles and tea....as I drink my
2nd cup of coffee.

I clink my cuppa to you and Nutella IS sinfully good...we have always loved hazelnut anything/everything

Kinda funny how on the recent commercials they make it sound 'good' for you...like they are trying to sell it as health food for children...it's definitely a very nice 'treat'

and now you've made me hungry!
Happy T today and everyday

Drop by for tea if you get a chance - mine is not as mouthwatering as yours tho!!LOL

Nancy said...

Oh yes, Nutella is good! And so are homemade waffles any time of day with anything on them :)
Happy tea day to you

ana @ i made it so said...

oh yumm! i'm visiting from a mutual friend's blog, pattyS...thanks for the tea and temptation.. that nutella is trouble! ;)

funny. we had waffles for dinner tonight. it was an upside down sort of day, so it worked out just fine! even if it was the from-the-freezer kind...

Kimmie said...

Well, in the boonies of Nebraska I have heard of Nutella too, except it was via one of my college daughters who brought some home for me to try! I thought it was good but didn't really experiment with it. Now, peanut butter, another story. I have loved it since forever. I eat it on pancakes and sometimes waffles too! My kids LOVE waffles so we have two griddles to "keep 'em cooking". Unfortunately, I'm not a big fan of honey. Wish I was, it sounds so homey and healthy. I use it a lot though because, again, the kids love it.

Oh yes Nutella we know it well! as for putting the waffle in the toaster, I didn't think of that! in NZ they served them with some kind of whipped butter and strips of bacon! yummy!
