Grandpa Pals' Sunday Morning Waffles

Grandpa Pals’ Sunday Morning Waffles

My Grandpa was notorious for always asking what the plan was for our next meal, often times while we were eating our current meal.  I think that is where I got my love for having a good plan from 🙂  One of his favorite meals was breakfast.  Whether it was cinnamon toast in bed, hard boiled eggs on the balcony, or waffles at the kitchen table, he always made us feel like the queen when we dined with him.  In honor of Father’s Day this weekend, I wanted to share his waffle recipe.  I promise, this one will not disappoint!!
