I fell in love! This isn't what you are thinking though... This post is not about the love I have for my husband. This Valentine's I'm celebrating my new found love with waffles. That's right. Waffles. But not just any waffles. Liege Waffles.
"What kinda waffles?"
In January, Andrew and I stayed with my grandparents in Seabrook, Texas. One morning we went out to breakfast to a small place in old town Seabrook - Seabrook Waffle Co.
Seabrook Waffle Co. is a small building with additional seating outside. You walk in and place your order at the counter, behind which you can watch them take each dough ball and fry it up good on a few industrial Belgian waffle makers. While we were there about two people operate the makers, plate the waffles in a paper boat and dress with toppings - see the menu below! I had the Monte Cristo. But I tried my grandparent's choices too!
Art we displayed on the walls. I really appreciated a wood whale with a slap of shabby chic paint. Whale hung over the self serve coffee station across from the register. They really should charge more for that piece! It was beautiful.
First - I would need a waffle maker and the needed ingredients. I went on Amazon and picked out a nice affordably priced waffle maker (my choice here). But I put off this purchase because I'm super frugal! I will go to two stores to make sure I'm getting the best price. And in this case, I wanted to see if I could find a waffle maker at a garage sale before having to pay full price. So - said waffle maker sat in my Amazon shopping cart for a few weeks...
My husband is a great man, and a really good husband (you might have to remind me I said this some days!!!). Come the week of Valentine's, he saw the waffle maker sitting in my Amazon cart, and he ordered it! Plus the Imported Belgium Sugar pearls needed for the recipe (I've figured out how to make these myself too!! money signs!!)
OKAY! SO I have the waffle maker, now let's make the dough. With the help of my wonderful Aunt Wendy, I found and followed this recipe.
