Homemade Waffles

Saturday.

A day of quite time and space.
And a day of togetherness
While each Saturday is a little different, but Eric and I both desire it to be peaceful and relaxing
We are not the type that “live for the weekends”. Our weekdays are fun too, they are just really busy and we don’t get to spend much time together. 
Saturday’s can be sleeping in or getting up early for the Farmer’s market. Reading at a coffee shop. Going for a bike ride or enjoying a long run together. 
It can be getting out to go shopping. Or sitting at the house gardening and playing golf. 
It always entails a quiet breakfast together, whether dining out or eating in.
Lately, it’s been waffles. Fluffy and moist waffles that are perfectly crispy on the outside, covered in fresh berries, salty butter, and real maple syrup, only the good stuff. 
How do you spend your weekend? Do you like to travel or stay at home? Do you make a special breakfast on the weekends?

    I miss having waffles. I remember that I only got a chance to eat waffles whenever I am in a vacation since there is a nearby waffle store, which sells different kinds of waffle. Mixed berries, and real maple syrup sound yummy, delicious and appetizing. Is there an alternative to real maple syrup if it is not available?

      You can find 100% maple syrup at most grocery stores. I like it because it has a better flavor. You can cook berries in a little brown sugar on the stove to make a syrup too!
