TGIF: Discovering a New Skill

I tried something new to me this week.  Making waffles.  I know, I know, what kind of girl am I that I hadn't made my own waffles before?  I just never had a waffle iron and Eggos came fresh frozen from the market.  So last Saturday, I just got it in my head that I was going to make my own dairy-free, high fructose corn syrup-free, low sugar waffles. Trotted down to Target to get a waffle maker and I was on my way.  Here's the rub, I dont usually cook. I microwave things really well, but actually cook... not so much.  I found a recipe on the internet by asking the all-seeing Google machine, tweaked it up a bit to meet my needs, and whipped up a batch. And, much to my great surprise, they were really good.  Much better than Eggos for certain! I liked them so much I made three more batches and froze them.  In essence I created my own Eggos.  I'm grateful I decided to try something new and I was able to prove to myself that I can cook something yummy without the use of a microwave.
