Chocnut Waffles

I'm not a morning person. I tend to be really sluggish and lazy whenever I wake up. The only thing that would make me eager to get out of bed in the morning is a well-prepared breakfast. I have a love affair with most breakfast foods - pancakes, *silogs, cereal, french toast and waffles. This morning, I decided to use up that pack of waffle mix that's been sitting in our cupboard for quite a while now.

As I've said, I tend to be really lazy so it's a bit rare that I actually brought myself to fix up breakfast this morning. Aside from the fact that I just can't resist food, one other motivator when preparing anything is making other people happy. I don't know. It's fun to serve the people, especially those that you love. I sometimes think my family must really enjoy living with me. Just kidding!

Blend the waffle mix, egg and water.
Blend until most of the lumps are gone.
Don't forget to lightly brush some butter on the waffle maker before pouring
the batter.

I don't always use pancake/waffle mix. There are times when I actually go the extra mile by making everything from scratch. For some reason, I feel a sense of fulfillment whenever I do that. If you're pressed for time though, a box of mix is really convenient. Sometimes, you won't even need to add an egg anymore. It all depends on the brand that you purchase. I don't really have a favorite. They all taste the same to me. Besides, the most important part is deciding what to put on your waffles.

I really love pancakes and waffles because they're like pieces of blank canvass. They're plain at first, but they can look wonderful (or in this case, scrumptious) when you decide to work on them. They can go with almost anything - powdered sugar, jam, fresh fruits - it's all up to your preference. This time, I decided to go for a chocnut sort of waffle. Before stacking two waffles together, I spread some peanut butter on the lower one. I added some ice cream just to be timely with the weather. I finished everything with a drizzle of chocolate syrup and some crushed chocnut. Mouthwatering, huh?

What a nice way to start this day. I guess it's only fitting since we're having a special occasion today, my graduation. Congratulations Batch 2013!

*silogs are famous among Filipinos. They're basically anything (like corned beef and hotdogs) served with fried rice (sinangag) and eggs (itlog).
