Friday Fuck-Up: Awful Waffle

Posted by on November 30 2012 in Breakfast

First of all, did anyone catch the sweet Salute Your Shorts reference I just made?  No?  Okay.  Moving on.

You know what bugs me? Recipes that use only part of a can of something.  For example, I have a pizza sauce recipe that calls for 2 tablespoons of tomato paste. If I actually follow those instructions, I am left with most of a can of tomato paste to put in the fridge, where I will undoubtedly find it two weeks later covered with a layer of white, suspicious fuzz. Mmm.

So, it was with this in mind that, when I set out to make pumpkin waffles last week (that’s right, pumpkin waffles, not pumpkin spice waffles), and the recipe called for 2/3 of a can of pumpkin, I figured, what the heck?  I dumped in the whole can. And…well, you can see what happened above.

In the annals of Friday F-ups, this one certainly won’t go down as one of the worst, as once I picked the waffle bits off the maker, the whole thing still tasted great.  Plus, as I always say…

When life gives you runny waffle batter, make pancakes.

    You can put the left over tomato paste in a freezer bag and flatten it out to about 1/2 inch thick. Put the bag in the freezer and just break off what you need each time. Probably the handiest kitchen tip I ever learned!

    Haha! This post made me laugh…I planned an entire meal this week just to use up my left-over tomato paste. Now to work on the left-over stewed tomatoes…
