I bought a moderately nice waffle iron on saturday. I made "buttermilk waffles" from the recipe in "the Joy of Cooking". They weren't bad. Today we had an impromptu Labor Day party when a friend of Laura's came over to knit with her and brought her husband and four children along. I was in the process of making breakfast for my family and wound up making breakfast for everyone. it was kind of fun. It reminded me of mornings when I was growing up. I'm the oldest of four kids.
So, I spent my morning laboring in the kitchen over waffles for all, a full rasher of bacon, and scrambled eggs. The waffles were much improved over the attempt on Saturday. The recipe calls for egg yolks and egg whites to be seperated and whipped. On Saturday I broke one of the yolks and was unable to properly seperate them from the whites as a result. I think that combined with a failure on my part to properly whip the egg whites resulted in overly heavy waffles. The batch today was much improved.
Waffles are yummy.
In any event I joked that I needed to start a husband's union in honor of the day and to prevent further explotation of my natural desire to cook for everyone.
