Filled Waffles

The distinctly patterned waffled originated as obelios which were cooked by the ancient Greeks. They only became known by the term waffles in the 13th Century as this is when the first honeycomb pattern was used. The word honeycomb originated from Old French word wāfla, hence waffles. Filled waffles are one of the many ways to enjoy this treat.

Dave and I usually choose this time of the year to take our annual holiday. We have so many public holidays that taking time off work does not have that much of an impact. The 21st of March was a public holiday in South Africa which meant a three day weekend, followed by a three day week. This long weekend was great. On the Saturday we were out all day watching motor racing, and that left me with two full days at home to get creative in the kitchen. On the Sunday I started with the dough for my waffles and then moved on to making the base for an ice cream. Both needed to sit overnight which freed up the rest of my day for catching up on MasterChef Australia and watching motor sport and cricket. Monday morning I woke up and began my day with churning my ice cream. I then started on the waffles which I finished off after lunch. This left me the afternoon to go and do some shopping and then fill the waffles, and watch more cricket. The filled waffles were enjoyed with our afternoon espressos and then again with the ice cream for dessert after dinner. By the time Monday night came around I was so relaxed and felt like I had a proper weekend. And the best thing is I knew on Tuesday morning that I would only have to face a 3 day work week before Easter weekend rolled around and I got 4 more days to play around in my kitchen. What do you enjoy most about long weekends?
