If there were ever a time when we needed smell-a-vision, this would be it!
Friends, if you knew how AMAZING these gingerbread waffles make your house smell you would run right into your kitchen and start gathering ingredients!
But, please finish reading this…because you actually need the recipe in order to make them so that your house can smell AMAZING! 😉
Yesterday, the kids had the day off of school which meant staying in jammies and not having to race out the door in the morning. It also meant having time to make a breakfast treat, perfect for the last day in October.
My oldest sat on the stool and helped me mix the ingredients and we talked about how strange it is that something like molasses can smell and taste so funny and yet add so much deliciousness to a recipe.
And, of course, I had to tell him the story again of The Box and my grandma’s Molasses Cookies.
And as the waffle iron sizzled and the smell of gingerbread wafted out, the whole house seemed to be embraced by the very essence of the season. It reminded me once again of how much I love this time of the year.
How it’s the perfect combination of old memories and new ones.
And how someone really needs to invent smell-a-vision!
