I think that you can do them in a pan - you just don't get quite the crunch that the ridges/valleys give. I've looked at a mini waffle maker on Amazon - it's less than 10.00. I'm still in the "considering" it stage...I need another kitchen appliance like I need another hole in my head.

I felt the same way about a waffle iron. Total waste of kitchen space. But, hubby REALLY wanted one. So. HE. Bought. One. Now... we enjoy those waffles, and they make a great breakfast!

I noticed we don't have a thread to show some of the neat things we make for meals. So post them on up here.


Here's todays for me. One of the local restaurant supply had packs of beef tri-tip on sale. There were 4 of them in the pack. Nice sized fat cap, which is usually removed amywhere else if you can find them.

Fat cap is a must for what I wanted to do. Put on a nice dry rub and smoked them all up today.

I pulled 3 of them off a hour before done. It's at 350° anyway and they can do that cooking in the oven later. I'll vacuum seal and freeze them.

The last one is just about done. Super tender and the smell is killing me.

yes, that's about how we feel too, but also we just don't have that much room in this house but the biggest factor is that Mom rarely wants any kind of breakfast food and i don't really eat that way very often either.

I'm just not sure how often I'd use it. I'd probably use it a couple of times and then forget that I have it and end up giving it to one of my kids later. But, I'm curious. Too much going on right now to worry about it - if I still want it in a month or so I might give it a go. :idunno

We had pork in tamarind soup base, with onions, okra, radishes, and swamp cabbages, dipped in local fish sauce with chilis, steamed rice, and a big bottle of coca-cola. :drool:drool:drool
