A waffle is like a pancake with a syrup trap...

Lentil Rice Pilaf by Casbah

I have had this box of pilaf in my cupboard for some time now. I was saving it for when I didn't have anything else to make...and yesterday was that day. It has a very simple list of ingredients but is delicious. The seasoning is very nice. I also threw in some baby spinach at the end of the cooking time to add some greens. I plan on buying some more and keeping them on hand for days when I don't want to cook. One serving has 8 g of fiber and of protein!

Billy and I made our grocery list and meal plans for the upcoming week today, and afterwards, I was left with the urge to cook. So for breakfast, I made waffles.

Cornmeal Waffles with Blueberry Syrup- 125 Best Vegan Recipes

The cornmeal gives a really nice texture and I love how these are crispy. I had it with some leftover breakfast sausage.

Update: These waffles freeze really well. I wrapped them in wax paper and then foil, and froze them. To reheat them, I popped each quarter into the toaster for a few minutes. They stay nice and crispy!

I'm off to the kitchen to make some goodies for a bonfire tonite!

Mhm, the waffle looks delicious. I couldn't help but notice the DVD in the background. My boyfriend and I are big fans of the Star Trek movie, Dark Knight and the Inglourious Basterds, haha! :-) Have fun at the bonfire!

We got about ten DVD's for 20$ from a movie rental store that was closing!
