Thanks to Darcy over at Art & Sole this week our Postcard travels take us to the country of Belgium. Yes to the home of the wondermous invention of the Belgian Waffle, in Brussels. Can we say YummOH…yes we cans.
Well here is the low down on this American Breakfast Food – it was not originally nor is it now known to the Belgiums as a breakfast dish. Nope it’s a snack sorta like a HoHo (Hostess / Little Debbie) sorta snack). With that said they will prepare them (waffles) for tourist at breakfast time. But between you and me I have a feeling they laugh about it in the kitchen.
And this week brought me back to a Mixed Media Mood: I used bits of Wicker sent to me by Deb_In_PA (thank you <3) “wrapped” them in a paper napkin, glued ‘em to an actual Recipe for Real Belgian Waffles (made with yeast not baking powder). Oh they are held in the loverly hand of some hand model from a magazine.
To Liz from Allen - Belgium
And it reads …
Very glad to hear you are letting your hair down! R.H. said you would be in Belgium soon …couldn’t help but think of my favorite breakfast, perhaps one day we could share . I’ll cook! But not any time too soon though as I’ve broken my arm. Long story. I drove by your home the other day was very surprised to see the lawn so over grown. I’d be happy to have it done…heck I’m even willing to sit in a lawn chair with a glass of sweet tea and watch.
