A Definite Do Again

The Gingerbread Waffles were a huge hit!
We really loved them. I think the secret ingredient is the fresh ground nutmeg. My friend sent me some from her trip to Grenada. Thanks Cheryl! I had used it before from the spice section in the grocery store and they came in a little glass bottle. Those were ready to grate. These that Cheryl sent were still inside the shell. I tried to grate them and realized I need to crack the shell first. The nutmeg smells so yummy when you grate it. I was in heaven. It reminded me of Rosalia, Christina Bambina's mom. She used fresh nutmeg in the white sauce when she made her out of this world Lasagna. I miss her yummy cooking!Of course getting breakfast in bed just isn't the same if you can't smell bacon frying!
Here you go, Mr. Mark.
