Today is National Waffle Day!

I have grandsons and the one who is 15 absolutely enjoys waffles. When he spends the night at our house (typically once a week) he almost always has waffles, eggs, bacon, sausage links, and coffee for breakfast! He would say every day should be Waffle Day, but happily, today is Waffle Day! Let's look at some Waffle Fun Facts - did you know . . .

  • Waffles have been around since the 14th century.
  • Waffles inspired Nike's first pair of sneakers - they were called the "waffle trainer" and were made using an actual waffle iron.
  • The Waffle House sells 145 waffles a minute.
  • Eggo first called their waffles Froffles. It’s a combination of “frozen” and “waffles".
You will find more waffle fun facts at this link.

So, how might you celebrate Waffles today? Of course have some for breakfast - my favorite is blueberry waffles with peanut butter on them! But don't limit these tasty treats to breakfast. Have some for lunch or supper or for a snack - whenever you eat them, you will certainly enjoy them! You might gather your family and have a waffle eating contest, or a waffle making contest, or ???

Check this link for more ideas on how to celebrate as well as additional interesting info about waffles and enjoy! It is National Waffle Day!
