Saturday Morning Waffles

Nov 5, 2012
Every bite of Saturday morning was so-worth it..

and you ask me why? 

...because I made waffles devoured myself with waffles, a kind that is crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, with syrup, lots of syrup, dusted with powdered sugar.  



...and I deserved it because the lady needed to do some carbs loading for the DRC half-marathon on Sunday, Nov 4th.

After completing DRC Half Marathon, Nov 4, 2012


also, I needed to do some justice to my very underutilized waffle maker.



I came across this recipe @ The Heavenly Hearth with very few ingredients, nothing fancy schmacy; loved the simplicity of this recipe.


It turned out pretty good..try this full proof recipe just perfect for weekends.


Few of my favorite waffle toppings include nutella, peanut butter, fresh fruits, & yogurt.

  1. First of all, congrats on running the half! That's my next running goal after having Liam. :D I'm still doing 5K's 3 times a week, so I need to bump it up! :D
    Secondly, those waffles look fantastic! We had waffles on Saturday too and I enjoyed every minute of them. :D Yum!

  2. Dixya,

    That's great about the waffles - they look delicious and you certainly did need to carb load before the half-marathon. Congratulations! Always such an accomplishment!

  3. Congratulations on running the DRC Half. I ran it too! In fact, I think I saw you at the race (I mean this in a totally non-stalkerish way). My carb load before the race was pasta the night before and a potato sandwich the morning of. Found your blog via Sig :)

  5. i've never made waffles at home... but after running your marathon, you can eat a lot more than waffles. i can't run... i just end up on the elliptical. give you so much credit.

  10. Congrats on your half marathon, Dixya! Was it your first one? These waffles look like the ideal carb-loader! Favorite toppers for me definitely include Greek yogurt, maple syrup, fruit, peanut butter and Nutella. On that note, I think I will have to dust off my waffle maker tomorrow morning ;)!
