I ran my usual errands on Friday and then I pretty much stayed in for the rest of the weekend and took care of some important paperwork. I really had been procrastinating and finally sat myself down and got it done (or almost done).
I spent all Saturday in front of the computer with just minimal distraction from Twitter and the TV (movie marathon! I think I watched “The Proposal” 2,5x and “Knocked up” 3x total. Don’t judge!)
Yesterday I rewarded myself with some homemade German (heart-shaped) waffles. I bought the heart-shaped waffle iron before Christmas because it’s somewhat of a family tradition to make waffles (with hot cherries and whipped cream) some time before the holidays. Then, I never got around to making some before I left for Germany. Since I missed out on the German Christmas Markets as well, I didn’t even get to eat some waffles there.
But today, TODAY was the day!
German waffles are generally thinner than American waffles and don’t use any baking powder. There are a little denser and sweeter than the American counterpart.
I didn’t go through the trouble to heat up cherries and make whipped cream today. Instead, I made a fresh pot of coffee and had the waffles plain with some powdered sugar on top. They were delicious!!
Did you treat yourself to something special this weekend?
