I mean, I start off looking for the answer to a simple question, like, where did that White Rabbit go? Or a perfectly logical home-making query like, Hmm... I wonder if my homemade pancake mix will waffle well? It's made from fresh-milled flour, and some recipes go crazy wrong when you throw in real flour...
And Next Thing You're Falling Down the Rabbit Hole
Maybe It's How Alice Felt: Standing There Holding a Flamingo and Trying to Play Croquet...
Yup. I had just, sort-of gone off the deep-end. Twenty minutes on Pinterest, and suddenly it seemed silly to have this appliance in my cozy kitchen that could only make waffles.
And there was this waffle book, promising it would give me some ideas and maybe add a little fun to the kitchen routine.
It actually did both, so in the spirit of self-justification, here's my pros & cons for Will It Waffle?
One of my favorite things to do with the waffle iron now is have everyone gather in the kitchen and create their favorite sandwich. I stand at the iron and throw each of them in, one at a time for two minutes. No, it's not a sit-down-everyone-together type meal, but it is novel and fun.
The chicken parmesan and waffled french toast are pretty awesome, too. I doubt I would have thought to try either of those in the waffle iron if I hadn't taken that trip through Wonderland.
What Was Your Latest Rabbit Hole?
Seriously people, I know I'm not the only one who goes from Pinterest to Amazon and ends up waffling chicken parmesan!
What was the last thing you found when Wonderland sucked you in? Was it a total win or a total disaster? Do share!
