A couple days prior to leaving for vacation, our house naturally wasn’t stocked with a lot of food. Sidney, the resourceful cook the she is, was able to round up enough ingredients to make a new waffle recipe. They were really good and we even had some left over that we were able to freeze. Sadly, all the remaining waffles have now been devoured which is distressing because today is National Waffle Day. It would have been fitting to heat one up for breakfast.
The lack of a traditional waffle got me thinking: Does today just encompass the waffles you put syrup on? Or can I celebrate today by eating one of the following?…
You won’t find a more famous French fry than Chick-fil-A’s waffle fries. These spuds are legendary and epitomize what cravings are made of. Did you know that Spokane is getting a second Chick-fil-A restaurant?
Then you have waffle cones. I can’t tell you what is better—the unmistakable smell of fresh waffle cones in an ice cream parlor OR the actual taste of one. If waffle cones “count” on National Waffle Day, I am heading to Baskin-Robbins right now.
What about Waffle Crisp? The discontinued cereal was recently revived and of course I bought a box. It brought back so many fond memories from morning’s at my grandma’s house.
Finally, you have Lay’s chicken & waffles flavored potato chips. Should this suffice for adequately celebrating National Waffle Day? I am going to say NO because the taste of those chips was so horrible that eating them was more of a punishment than anything resembling a celebration.
So perhaps the best option for marking National Waffle Day is to just eat a traditional waffle. Man, I sure wish I lived by a Waffle House. Don’t Blink.
