When this whole thing started, I often felt like a lone man waffling in the wilderness.
Now, I can't click around the web without landing on something waffled. Often that something is waffles, which are lovely but, of course, not why we're here. Sometimes, though, that something is waffled something — if you follow.
Cases in point:
- Buzzfeed listed 12 surprising foods you can make in a waffle iron (which, in fairness, seem to be mostly cribbed from Food Network, which, in fairness seem to bear striking resemblance to things that have appeared previously on this site but, hey, I can't own the idea of sticking something in a waffle iron any more than I can own the idea of sticking something in the oven. I can only say that, in both cases, obviously, some people do it better than others, otherwise we would all be running four-star restaurants.)
- Buzzfeed also listed 24 very important next-level waffles, many of which do seem to be based on waffled waffle batter but, hey, there's nothing wrong with waffled waffle batter. I hear it's delicious.
- Bon Appétit offers 10 crazy sweet and savory waffle recipes, some of which — I'll admit — don't seem all that crazy to me, but that might have something to do with the fact that I'm the guy who put macaroni and cheese in the waffle iron.
Also, I cannot completely ignore the fact that fast food chains are getting in on the waffling act. Wait. You know what? Sure I can. I can completely ignore that.
And I think I will.
