Whole Wheat Waffles


This past Sunday evening, my husband confidently told me, "I think you should make some waffles. With strawberries."

"I think that's a great idea," I responded.

I didn't have any fresh strawberries on hand, but I was able to whip up a delicious strawberry syrup using frozen strawberries. The meal turned out delicious and it was such a great way to end a fun weekend. I could see this becoming a Sunday evening tradition in our house.

@rooth Great idea!
@Teri It depends on my mood, but I often do prefer these over the traditional style.
