mmmmmm Waffles

We went to Holly’s place last night with Marlene and Gary and made green waffles (in honor of St. Patrick’s Day). I have a really nice waffle maker. It makes waffles taste better – really.

Gary was in charge of making strawberry syrup.
Marlene was in charge of buttering the waffles and keeping the endless supply of kids occupied with waffles.
Holly was in charge of eating the waffles.
Oh yeah, she also made whipped cream – that’s REAL whipped cream. Cool whip just isn’t going to cut it for us connoisseurs. She also supplied the genuine maple syrup. That’s the stuff from the trees, not the stuff from Wal Mart.

We learned a game that I can’t remember the name of, but even though I never really had any strategy, and everybody was making fun of me, even in my ignorance I won twice. (I also came in dead last once.)

Rachel’s job was to be cute as a button, at which she succeeded, as always. This photo is not from last night, but come on, how cute is that? With the bookshelf behind her, I might just use this photo for her application to go to law school. She is very well read.

The entire event was an unqualified success.

  1. That really is a great pic of Rachel. However, mine is sadly WAY less flattering. And I am the first to affirm that your waffle maker does indeed make waffles taste better. Thanks for doing the cooking and being a good sport about the game Perudo. Maybe you just had beginners luck. (because you definitely can’t lie well!)

  2. Are you kidding Holly? Yours was the BEST picture. I would beg to differ about my ability to lie. Not that it is anything to be proud of, but I can lie pretty well. However, I’m terrible at playing games. I’ll take beginners luck because it’s the only kind I ever have. The first (and only) time I played – oh, I forget the name, but the one where you try to take over the whole world – I won that one too.

  3. After reading this I decided that I had the hardest job feeding the everyone. from the picture it look like I was concentrating it was a good thing I was their oh and the waffles were really. good

  4. First: What kind of waffle maker do you have and where can I get one? Second: if I read one more blog about waffles at Holly’s, I’m inviting myself next time! hee hee Rachel did her job well.

  5. All I have to say is: Waffles ALWAYS taste better if someone else is making them! For that matter, I think anything tastes better when you don’t have to make it yourself! I love the picture of Rachel. She’s a cutie!
