heart shaped waffles
Naturally when moving back, before buying anything I check with my mother first:
Hey mom, I want to buy a sewing machine.
Oh no need dear, I have a very good one from the eighties, it's with it's wrapping paper, I never sewed.
Then why do you have it?
Oh I really wanted to sew but never came around learning.
So while poking about the many, oh many drawers that I just told you about. I came across something interesting. Hey mom, you know what this is?
Did it not come with a manual?
It was in German.
Looking closely it dawned on me "hey mom, you know what this is? It's a waffle iron! a heart shaped waffle iron" my mom's response was "what's a waffle iron?"
Today, that waffle iron that sat there for years and years waiting for it's mystery to be solved, was used for the very first time-- to make a very special birthday boy his very special breakfast. And what better shape to serve some hot crunchy waffles than this?
My mother is trying these next!
Have a lovely weekend!
