Whenever I make a batch of weekend waffles (or, in this case, random-weekday-holiday waffles), I like to make a few extra to eat through the week. I usually freeze whatever is leftover and, when the waffle craving strikes, I just take two out of the freezer, pop them in a toaster as I would an Eggo, and eat. Easy. Peasy.
The cornmeal waffles I made yesterday were a little dry and not terribly sweet. Let’s just say they weren’t exactly the “best waffles ever” to eat on their own, but that doesn’t mean they wouldn’t make a great bread replacement in sandwich form. I toasted two of the waffles and filled them with an egg, spinach, and strawberry jam for lunch today.
The waffle-sandwich was delicious (as I knew it would be!). The strawberry jam moistened the sandwich up a bit and the egg and spinach added a great savory element. Who says waffles are just for breakfast?
With the waffles I had some steam-in-a-bag edamame.
Steam-in-a-bag edamame is the best. I usually get the generic Publix brand and it takes like 6 minutes to make. They’re my favorite thing to snack on while prepping the rest of the meal and to mindlessly eat while chatting through lunch. Derek and I were fighting for the last ones.
Speaking of the wedding, since Derek has the rest of the week off, we’re going to try and squeeze in some wedding-related tasks this afternoon, including wedding band shopping! I’ve tried on a few options here and there (mainly borrowing friends’ bands to see how they look), but I still have no idea what I want. It will be fun to narrow it down some.
