♥ LOVE ♥

happiest valentine's day !
;0)
Our cute friend, LYNN, always has the BEST parties..
and this one is no different...
be sure to go over and check out the fun posts....
I have a brand, spanking new
waffle iron that is my FAVORITE gadget in my kitchen right now.
I received this beautiful iron from a gift code so generously 
given to me from 


I do dearly love fresh strawberries with waffles.
...and the BLUEBERRIES...
they just about bring me to my knees...
MR. SWEET likes maple syrup on his waffles or pancakes
while I love the blueberry best.
This is an easy clean-up waffle iron
which scores BIG points with me.

This amazing baby makes SIX waffles at a time.
My olden one made ONE round one and we
kept having to wait wait wait until I had enuf made
to sit down and eat together..
Actually, the old one belonged to my mom.
She had asked for a waffle iron that made a single waffle
and it was the last gift I gave to her.
oh honey
 I just realized that I didn't even take a photo 
of Mr. Sweet's plate...his syrup didn't
look NEARLY as pretty as mine. :))
I am hoping YOUR
VALENTINE'S DAY
is filled with romance and wonderment.
 MUCH LOVE TO ALL,
♥♥♥

Happy Valentine's Day!

Your waffle looks amazing and I've never seen an iron that big. Jordan asks for gingerbread waffles for his birthday breakfast each year. My iron only makes two at a time.

Hi BJ! Lovin' your nice big new waffle maker! The waffles look so pretty with the fresh berries, what a great way to start the day:@)
Thanks so much for playing along, Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Linda (More Fun Less Laundry) said...

Yum, bj, I LOVE waffles!! They need to be just the right cripsiness so they aren't mushy and aren't burned! Then, the butter gets spread all over and oozes into the wells. Next, the fruit--blueberries, strawberries and bananas. Last, real Vermont maple syrup! I want one now and yours look delicious!!! Linda

Laurie at Turner Farm said...

Gotta love a good waffle iron. Your photos are fabulous! YUM!
Happy Valentine's Day!

That looks like a dandy waffle iron. I like waffles and pancakes both. I rather have pancakes as waffles get cold too quick. I prefer the plain old fashion maple syrup. I love the new photo on you bio with the little cute face.

Denise said...

Oh, golly. I didn't think about my waffle iron - and I do love it so! In fact, I worried and worried about it and put off and put off buying it because it was rather expensive. But I haven't regretted a dime of it. Makes great chocolate dessert waffles too. Let's all give a cheer for WAFFLES. Hip, Hip, Hooray!

Sue @ Not the Good Scissors! said...

Happy Valentine's Day to you and Mr. Sweet.
xoxo, Sue

Jacqueline said...

BJ, oh, to have a waffle maker that does up six at a time. Now you could really feed a crowd with this and to get it as a giveaway makes it just fantastic. The fresh fruit makes my mouth water. We love waffles for a quick Sunday afternoon meal. Yum. Great new gadget.

Have a wonderful Valentine's Day.

Theresa @ Take A Sentimental Journey said...

Happy Valentine's Day sweet BJ !

Annie Joy said...

I'm not going to show your waffles to my hubby -- he even eats his syrup with toast! He would strongly suggest that I might want to visit the kitchen. Oh, well, it might result in a new waffle iron like yours! Happy Valentine's Day! Annie

Pondside said...

What a nice, new waffle iron! Mine is about 30 years old - perhaps time to look for an updated one!

My Mother in Law gets hers out every Sunday am when we visit and makes her own blueberry syrup from the liquid that comes out of the blueberry muffin mix.

OOOOOOOOO BJ,
I love the kitchen gadgets! Could I borrow your Selleck for a Sunday family dinner? Your Connery for a picnic with my Scotch Plaid picnicware...and the Elliott for a little cowboy flavor chuckwagon?
UMUM lip smackin good;)

Ralph said...

Ah, these waffles are beautiful to start, homemade a bit better than the frozen variety in a toaster. Berries are a topping that works wonderfully. Happily, REAL maple syrup is in use. So tasty in view as well as on the plate!

PEA said...

Happy Valentine's Day, dear BJ:-) Make sure you come over to pick up your Valentine!!

This is too funny...just yesterday I was at the mall and was looking at the waffle irons in WalMart. I almost bought one then thought I'd just wait. Now I come here and you just bought a new one! hehe I really like the idea of being able to make 6 at a time! Your waffles look so delicious with the fruit and syrup, a perfect Valentine breakfast:-) xoxo

Christie said...

Thank you for your sweet comments! I have been here many times for YOUR beautiful pictures and tips on photography! I appreciate the kind words...I am just now learning some tips on lighting. I like your new blog design and that picture of your sweet grand! I wrote a post on 'raising children' just above the lunch box post...parenting has not come easy for me, but I am very blessed that the Lord has taught me! Thanks!

Christie said...

I forgot! I always love your pix and I, too will need to dig out that waffle iron! Christie
