It’s Spring! It’s Winter! It’s Spring! and Food

Dear Kid,

March has me confused. What happened to Spring? Just yesterday it was warm enough to wear a T-shirt and today it is Winter degrees outside.

Therefore, I am doing the only reasonable thing: burying myself under 17 layers of blankets and cuddling up with the Puppy, my computer, and a cup of coffee. Maybe several cups.

Hopefully, you are staying warm. Personally, I don’t plan to emerge until that silly rodent follows through on his promise of a short winter.

Speaking of absolutely freezing cold, it was absolutely freezing cold in Pittsburgh and we still had a marvelous time.

We toured Fallingwater, the home by Frank Lloyd Wright. Interestingly, it was nominated for the 8th Wonder of the World (but lost to Manchu Pichu—another place I’d like to go).

Fallingwater is snuggled into the environment, right over a lovely little waterfall.

And we ate our way through Thai food, Greek food, “eclectic” food,

eclectic food at Porch in Pittsburgh.

Italian food, and (of course) waffles.

Waffle Day!!

Dear Kid,

It’s Waffle Day!

In honor of Waffle Day, Pi and I had breakfast at Waffles Incaffeinated in Pittsburgh.

Let me sum up our experience by saying “YUM!”

I had the Mega-Berry Waffle.

Pi had a Very Interesting Waffle that she added things to to make it Even More Interesting.

We sampled all three of the house syrups (maple, maple bourbon, and vanilla). And there was a lot of good coffee for one of us. (I’ll let you guess which one.)

It was a great way to start our day.

Fun (or not) waffle facts:

  • The word “waffle” is from the Dutch, meaning “wafer.”
  • Unless it comes from the Old German “wefan”, which meant “to weave something into the shape of a honeycomb.”
  • Waffles were brought to America by the pilgrims. Which started the tradition of turkey and waffles.
  • There are waffles in our freezer because Eggo started freezing waffles in 1953. The ones in our freezer were made more recently.
  • There are savory waffles in the world, but they are a mistake.

How are you going to celebrate Waffle Day? Enjoy!

Love, Mom
