When I was little my mother had this ancient waffle iron. It made very thin waffles with tons of holes in them. I’m not sure how she made them, for all I know she used a pre canned mix, it was the 80’s after all! I loved those waffles and now that I’m older I wish I had that waffle iron. It would have needed a lot of help as it only cooked on the bottom and you had to flip them half way through the cooking time when I was a preteen. I don’t think it was ever replaced at my mothers. She doesn’t cook anymore.
I love Pho. It’s one of my favorite meals. Honestly I could eat it every day and still like it just as much. I think it’s the combination of the warmly spiced broth and the bean sprouts that do it for me. I was away from home for this challenge but it turned out quite well and I think that my brother and sister-in-law enjoyed it.
I’m here, I’m here!!! Don’t forget me!!! Ok, so I really fucked up and missed the deadline by about almost 5 days. Whoops is all I can say. I could tell you my excuses (ranging from my children needing a lot of attention to it’s been way to hot here to cook cookies) but I won’t. I missed the deadline my fellow daring bakers… is there any way you can forgive me? I’ll stop rambling now and save that for another post, on to the cookies!
