Perfectly Spiced Waffles topped with Caramelized Apples and an Apple Cider-Maple Syrup! These waffles will make you want to wake up just for breakfast!
I’ve been pretty MIA since last Thursday. Since then, I’ve packed up myself and my kids and flew down to Missouri, to finally join my husband. It’s been an adjustment for sure, the size of the (super small) kitchen being one of the biggest. I just keep reminding myself, it’s only for 16 weeks..but I can’t complain, I’m just glad to have the chance to be here, it’s worse than all of us being apart for 4 months.
We’re living right on base, which would be sweet, if there wasn’t a government shut down, preventing me to do anything. We have to go off base for everything now, its kind of a pain in the arse. I’ve heard its worse for those overseas, like no outgoing mail..(think of their husbands/wives that are in Afghanistan..no care packages…) And then there’s those who aren’t even getting paid..this is awful, and its so much harder when it affects you directly..all I can say is that our government needs to get their sh*t together. PRONTO.
Let’s talk Apples. JUST because its October, and it seems like all things are Pumpkin, doesn’t meant we should forget about the glorious Apple. It’s still Fall, its still apple picking season, and lordy, I just love them so much! I haven’t even made an apple pie yet! Blasphemy. BUT I did make these inanely good Apple Pie Waffles with and Apple Cider Maple Syrup.
Let me just say, this is the next best thing to apple pie. Much less fuss..(I hate working with pie dough sometimes), the waffles is spiced with all the right flavors, the apples are caramelized, oh yah. Then its all drizzled with an apple cider maple syrup, made from the caramelized apple drippings. I made these for my son and my parents, and there was lots of moaning and groaning, which in our house, is a sign of a fantastic dish!
P.S. Don’t worry, I’ve got LOTS of pumpkin coming your way soon!
