Day #47, Belgian Waffle

Today I was all set to order the Farewell Rudy, Hello Rhodella. However, we only had a few orders left, so I skipped over it again and went on to the Belgian Waffle. Our Waffles have always smelled terrific in the kitchen, but it's another thing that I've never tried. The Belgian waffle is topped with sugar strawberries and fresh, hand-whipped cream.

It's not something that I would ever order for myself for breakfast, but since I had to blog about it I thought I might as well enjoy it. And enjoy it I did. The waffle was my favorite part, but of course the strawberries and whipped cream were like icing on the cake.

A Belgian Waffle is usually identified by larger size, lighter batter, and a higher grid pattern that forms deep pockets. The Belgian waffle was first introduced by Maurice Vermersch of Brussels, Belgium. He decided to change the name from the Brussels Waffle to the Belgian Waffle based upon the poor geographical skills of Americans.

I thought that having this waffle was really a treat for breakfast. It reminded me of my childhood when I used to love strawberries and whipped cream on my waffles. I'm glad I had the chance to reminisce about my childhood with this breakfast!
