Waffle Dreams

Last night we went to bed at 9pm and it was heavenly. I could have gone to sleep at 6pm, but I didn't want to wake up in the middle of the night, so I made myself stay awake for a few more hours.

Since I slept for so long, I had multiple dreams. I can't remember most of them, but the one this morning before I woke up was very influential.

I dreamed about waffles! (One of my co-workers has a hamster named Waffles, but that's not what I dreamed about.) When I woke up, I really really wanted waffles. I got up and checked the pantry for Bisquik, but we didn't have any. So I got out my red checkered cookbook and looked up the recipe, and I made waffles!--from scratch! Have you ever put vanilla in waffles? It's yummy. I didn't have time to make the whole batch since we only have one waffle maker with only two waffle slots. I also dreamed that there were fresh blueberries all over the waffles, but we didn't have any of those. It's still a treat to have waffles for breakfast though! :)

**UPDATE** - Now that I've tasted the waffles, there's definitely something wrong with them. I thought at first I may have put the wrong amount of salt in, or maybe I need to sift together the dry ingredients instead of just stirring them. After thinking about it for a while, I may have used baking soda when the recipe called for baking powder. Whoops! I guess I need to work on reading recipes and ingredient boxes more closely.

ha whoops. one time i was making a gravy (yep, GRAVY) like sauce (to go on rice) with chris's mom. and we switched up the baking soda and baking powder and used the wrong one. well, it didn't get any thicker, but it sure started foaming a lot! we had to throw it out and start over. ;-)

Daddy taught me the difference between baking soda and baking powder. Baking soda is just a base. You can use it in stuff that is already acidic. And baking powder is a dried base and a dried acid put together. You can use it in bland things like pancakes and cornbread, and once it's wet, the acid and base start to react. Cool, huh!

I think we make that same recipe! I agree the vanilla is an excellent addition. They always taste great for us, so you must have gotten the baking ______ confused.
