Sunday brunch is a thing around here. But waffles, the poor things, never get included in the menu. Here's how lazy I am sometimes: just the idea of dragging out the waffle iron and cleaning it afterward is tiring to me. Actually, I don't remember where our waffle iron came from, but it was a hand-me-down from somewhere. The hinges are completely gone, so you have to hold the raggedy thing together to keep the cord in, and it's plenty stained. Hm. Its old age makes my laziness more acceptable, right?

Well, either way, I decided it was time for the weary thing to go. Knowing well that I'm not going to buy a replacement - at least not in the foreseeable future - I got rid of the thing, but not before one last killer batch of waffles for Sunday brunch.

Thus I bring you the last batch of waffles this home will see for a long time: vanilla gingerbread. I gotta say, these waffles were so yummy that I was tempted to save my old iron's life, but I stayed strong and simply enjoyed every last bite of these.

Happy weekend. Hope you have a wonderful one. And if you're Sunday brunching, give these a try.
