* I was not impressed with the recipe I used. The waffles turned out tough and lumpy. If you have a suggestion for a great stand by recipe for waffles, let me know!

** Starting Friday night, we were on vacation with two other families in a large rented house across the street from the beach in Manistee. I know, tough life! We planned out that each family needed to prepare two meals, one lunch and one dinner, to give all of us a break from cooking. We made dinner on Friday night and lunch on Sunday.
