It’s pouring rain outside, you switch on your favorite cheesy reality show and you are so tucked into the three blankets that are layered on top of you that you can’t even bear the thought of getting up to use the bathroom if the need arises. Winter has finally arrived and the rainy season is hitting us harder over the next three days than it has in the past three months, so why not take advantage and take a lazy timeout? The only thing missing from this perfectly designed weekend of total relaxation? Delicious snacks, of course!
What I love most about food is that it can be completely tailored to your mood, the weather, the occasion or even who you’re with. It’s like make-up or art – whatever state you’re in or the surroundings around you, your meal can pair perfectly. On gloomy, rainy, chilly days, I find the best snacks are a little fattening, a little warm and always sweet!
Thus, I present:
Rainy Day Waffles
- Two Buttermilk Eggo Waffles
- A Half Ripe Banana
- Two Tablespoons Maple Syrup (light or low-sugar)
- Two Tablespoons Cool Whip (light or fat-free)
Toast the waffles until light brown and place on a plate.
Cut up the half banana into thin slices and spread half of the slices across one waffle and half across the other.
In any case, set the waffles as your canvas and load on the topping artwork for a sweet treat that satisfies all your cravings!
