The reason I picked this card for this update is coz today, 25 March is the International Waffle Day, and this is probably the only waffle card I have for the moment...have to check a bit more thoroughly, but still, I doubt the outcome would be any different.
So go give this tasty waffles the attention they deserve, here we have a blog post about this big day. Funny, though, this International day has originated in Sweden, and it is the country where it is mostly celebrated, and much less elsewhere...but for the love of God, i have not seen a Swedish waffle card so far! So I just had to jump in with what I had in hand.But did you know that actually the origin of the waffles dates back to the 1300s in Greece when the Greeks cooked flat cakes between two metal pans. At the time, they topped it with cheeses and herbs. They had many inventions but somehow they had missed on the pancake syrup :)
I cant say I have eaten too many waffles in my life...they serve them in some of the coffee shops around here, but I usually go for something else on the menu...I dont know if i had mentioned before that my first encounter with the waffles was rather disappointing...I expected them to be this crunchy kind of pastry with some caramel taste...but they turned out to be this cotton-soft kind of thing...and when you top it with some cream, the waffle gets even softer and sinewy...and that's just NOT it! At least not MY idea of how a waffle should taste and feel when you take a bite.
glad to know im not the only one using Christmas stamps a few months after Christmas :) these two come from a set of 10 issued last year...and the lady, well, you know her..
So Happy Waffles Day and go grab a waffle! Or whatever else sweet and tasty you may have around :)
