Good Morning and Happy Sunday! I don't know about you, but after the week I've had, I needed a cozy Sunday morning breakfast. Not only did we have that horrible storm on Monday, I had a crazy week at work, and to top things off I found out my favorite supermarket (the one I've been shopping at every week for 14 years) is closing! I'm definitely a creature of habit and don't like things to change much, so this news was a shocker for me. I'm so sad. Anyway, I thought some comfort food might be in order today. Dust off the waffle iron, folks....
How about some Country Gingerbread Waffles with warm maple syrup? I served mine with Shutterbean's hot vanilla cider (recipe here) and some apple slices drizzled with honey. I'm normally a pancake girl, but seriously, these waffles blew me away. It was the perfect November breakfast. While the cold air and leaves were blowing around outside I was cozy in my kitchen filled with the scents of apple and ginger. It's real life aromatherapy.
