Foodie Friday: Waffles!

It's Foodie Friday and I am going to take the lazy route and post a link to a recipe I tried this week: Waffles with Vanilla Custard. I happen to love cookbooks and I asked for Mennonite Girls Can Cook for my birthday last year. It is a beautiful cookbook full of interesting recipes, including the German/Mennonite recipes mom made us from her childhood. The recipe for Waffles with Vanilla Custard intrigued me, and I finally got around to trying it. I like it for two reasons: the waffles are very light and crispy without the extra step of beating egg whites and folding them in, and the custard is a very different and delicious way to top a waffle. It is basically like a thin, lightly sweetened pudding. My kids loved it!We had them for dinner with sweet potato fries and scrambled eggs. What about you? Are you a breakfast for dinner fan?

**The only modifications I made were to use coconut oil in the waffles, and I tweaked the sweetening just a bit. Next time I would use maple syrup or agave instead.**
