My new waffle maker

Years ago I had a waffle maker, but it was pretty cheap and it broke. Since then I've been looking for a frugal, but not cheaply made alternative. On Wednesday I went to Target and I finally found one! The waffle maker I bought was one I had looked at before, but never bought because it was $59. On Wednesday it was on sale for $8! I didn't hesitate for even a moment, before taking advantage of that awesome sale. (Then I was so elated I didn't hesitate for even a moment before I bought a $3 tea latte from Starbucks to celebrate!:P)
I love making waffles, because they are so easy and so very tasty that I can whip up a batch on the spur of the moment. Just this morning, I was tired and didn't feel like cooking breakfast and my kids were clamoring for pancakes. I was trying to convince them to eat some cheerios (it wasn't working) when I remembered my new waffle maker. Even the baby changed her tune from pancakes to waffles after I suggested it. I made honey bran waffles, which are not only very delicious, but healthy. I've found that waffles can almost always be made healthy with better results than you can get with pancakes or scones.
Now I just need that $250 stand mixer I've been looking at to go on sale!:P

A good thing about waffles and small children is that the kids eat a 1/4 of a waffle while they are walking around.

Or you can hope you get lucky like I did and have someone give you one. My mom gave me a KitchenAid mixer and I left it sitting in the box for a year because I had no idea what to do with it. Once I actually set it on the counter and started using it, I finally got what all the fuss was about.

As for the waffles, you're making me regret Freecycling my waffle iron.
