These crispy on the outside, soft on the inside Brown Sugar Bacon Waffles are the only breakfast companion you’ll ever need.
This Valentine’s Day, I want to set you up on a blind date. I know, I know, you’ve had enough awkward conversations for one lifetime, thank you. But what if I told you you wouldn’t have to talk? Nope, not even a word. No rambling about the weather. No long, uncomfortable silences. It’ll just be you and your new friend, enjoying each other’s company.
Still nervous? I’ll tell you what, I’ll even show you a picture of your date.
Beautiful…isn’t it? I think you two will get along just fine.
Now quick! Go get ready! You don’t want to keep your new friend waiting. Throw on your comfiest sweat pants, your softest long sleeve T, and the thickest socks you own. Muss your hair a little bit and don’t, don’t brush your teeth. Stop worrying about how fickle your waffle iron is or how strange it seems to put sugar on bacon. Trust me. This will be the best blind date of your life.
One warning, because you’re my friend. You may find after your date that all you want to do is go back to bed and sleep for several hours. It is impossible to resist this urge. Give in. I won’t judge.
