Waffle Wednesdays

For the past 2 months, Aaron and I have started a new tradition. We call it "Waffle Wednesday." It started because during the semester I had an evening class on Wednesdays, and by the time I got home I was hungry and wanted dinner QUICK. So waffles were the obvious answer.

Cute story...Just this past Tuesday I told Aaron what we were having for dinner, and he said something like: "What?! What is today?? I thought today was Waffle Wednesday!!!!" (He was pretty disappointed.) It was a crack up. I didn't realize he loved Waffle Wednesday that much, but apparently he does. Here's a picture of Aaron enjoying his waffles:

Something random...My mom made waffles every morning for breakfast ever since I can remember. Our Villaware waffle iron beeps/whistles when the waffles are ready, so several years ago my dad started calling our waffle iron the "whistle pig." Well, thanks to Patrick and Erica (!!!!!) Aaron and I received our own Villaware waffle iron as a wedding gift, and we have permanently adopted the term. Here is a picture of our beloved whistle pig:


We can't wait until next Wednesday!

  3. hey I have that same waffle maker!

    We have Pizza Friday's every week when we make homemade pizza! yum! I sort of wish that I could make every day a particular meal so I never had to think of something to make :) On Monday's I'd always have the same thing, Tuesdays, etc...so awesome.

  4. I love breakfast for dinner. You have inspired me - tonight we will have waffles (although we'll be missing the alliteration that you guys get on Wednesdays)!

  5. Hey, I just got your comment. I'm just going to wing the shirt. There are a few closeup pictures and it looks like she just sort of rolled up some fabric and sewed X's through them to hold them in place. Then just pin them in place and either hand sew them on, or sew over the seams you already made. I just bought an extra gray shirt and I'm just going to cut it apart to make the flowers. If you do it, let me know how it goes!! It's so cute, huh!?
