50 cent waffle iron


We have been without a waffle iron for the past year. And I miss it. We're a waffle-eatin anytime-of-day kinda family. In fact waffling goes way back on Randy's side of the family. (sounds like an Olympic sport, doesn't it) Randy's Dad would make waffles each time Randy's Mom would be in the hospital with a new baby. So you can imagine how thrilled I was when his parents gave us their beloved waffle iron soon after we married. (btw, 29 years ago this Monday) Think about it... the very waffle iron that Randy's Dad used when Randy was born was also used when each of our three kids were born! I love when tradition happens.
Anyway, that waffle iron died a year ago. And it's been Eggo waffles ever since.
But that all changed this morning.
As I did my usual yard saling throughout our neighborhood, I came upon this Toastmaster's waffle iron. Because the gal wasn't sure if it worked, she said I could have it for 50 cents! Oh ya, music to my ears! No waffling coming from this here girl!
Well, I immediately came home... washed and seasoned it... whipped out my waffle recipe... plugged in the iron... poured in the batter... and held my breath as I slowly lifted the lid and... yes, pure perfection! Randy & I celebrated with hugs and high-fives! You would have thought we had just won a waffle cooking contest! Come to think of it, they tasted THAT good!

Good deal Linda. I got a 3 quart crockpot for $1 and a coffee grinder for 50 cents today at YS. We used to have waffles or pancakes every Sunday morning but have not for a long time. I think I may make some tomorrow if I get up early enough

Congratulations on your great find...and so glad it worked!

We're in Tempe right now getting our daughter back to ASU. How do you guys live in this heat!?! It's ridiculous.

I love waffles too. If you drop a few blueberries in the batter before you close the lid...guess what? Yep, try it too.
