A few weeks back I was contemplating what to make for dinner...SSP and BAP suggested waffles.. I was thinking more along the lines of something taco related, as I was planning on Mexican for dinner. Being the mommy I am, I did not want the boys crying and/or screaming because I made them something they did not ask for. I asked Dr Google for insight on the matter. There I found results for a cornmeal waffle that would please everyone. I made half the batch without the spices and the other half with. MMM....Delicious.
