Can I tell you one of my absolute favorite things about having a "ski house"? Well, okay, the photo above already gave it away.
I was never a huge waffle person before I started skiing (in my mid-20s), but to me the two are now inseparable. I'm sure it's because so many of the places we've stayed on ski trips have waffle bars, where you make and top your own Belgian waffle. Such a tasty way to start the day. And since you're going to be skiing all day, the not-so-healthy toppings aren't that big a deal.
Of course, when you're making waffles at home all the time, it's a different story. But whipped cream is a healthy food group, right? Right?!
Here is our new favorite appliance, the Waring Pro double Belgian waffle maker, purchased refurbished-but-perfect for $40 from Overstock.com (now O.co), plus a five percent rebate.
We've been thrilled to feed tasty waffles to all of our guests, often using multigrain pancake mix as the base (so don't tell me it's not healthy -- ha!).
And the waffles were our first official "dinner" in the new house. (Notice the bottle of Champagne to the left of Mark. Waffles and Champagne. We're classy like that.)
This is what I find myself daydreaming about when we're back in LA. Soooooo good!
P.S. About a year ago, I blogged about all of the things we might like in a mountain house. Other than a view of the slopes and a foosball table (which wasn't for me, anyway. I'm more of a Wii kinda girl), we pretty much made all the rest of this happen.
