Sweet and savory waffle

Happy Friday friends!

It has been another busy week in the books, but a fun one. It was my birthday week which added another element to the week with a few small celebrations with friends and a lovely 2 hour massage (that was seriously the BEST and so what I needed!)
I also added a little fun to my life with a new pop of color in my hair!

I really focused on enjoying my time with friends and the hubs so I didn’t spend much time in the kitchen this week, but I did finalize on one of the recipes!

Before I share the recipe, I wanted to share a funny story about my early waffle making experience.  When we were first married I really wanted to make blueberry waffles.  I was not a huge waffle maker at that point, and had to actually go buy a waffle iron.  I made the batter and put the first scoop into the iron.  I closed it and flipped it over.  I was washing a few dishes while I waited a few minutes for it to cook.  All of a sudden I heard this popping noise and within seconds blueberry juice was spewing literally ALL over my kitchen!  I started yelling and didn’t know what to do! I was also laughing so hard at the same time!
So needless to say, I have not made blueberry waffles since! LOL

I am linking up with my fav Foodie Friday gals, Farrah from Fairyburger and Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama for waffle recipes!
