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.

    I attended schools where I was in the distinct racial minority in a small town in the rural South. My family made the decision to attend the majority African American public schools in a district that had closed its public schools for five years instead of integrating. I had this great experience as a child and felt a lot of responsibility for leading in my own simple ways even then by becoming a part of a wonderful school community that most whites had shunned..

    It's little wonder, then, that when staffers find themselves having successfully escaped to a bar and wind up talking to a fellow patron about what they do for a living, their choices seem to be A) obfuscate until they're ready to drop the bombshell and consequently end their night, or B) just flat out lie. When one staffer was asked about this, he admitted that he told people he worked as an auditor on Wall Street. Wall Street. (Michael Kors Black Studded Shoulder Bag)
