errryday I'm wafflein'
All right, not every day. Special days, birthdays.
Jason had a birthday last weekend, and the dogs and I got up early and made him breakfast in bed.
This time of year we visit the farmers market all the time, and I always have at least two pints of fresh raspberries on hand. Too often I simply eat them by the handful, or use them as a topping, like here with these waffles.
This time though, I also added raspberries to the waffle batter. A slight flavor, but a good one - lightly sweet and summery, with a double dose of coconut.
