Matt and I decided to start a tradition here at our church: once a month we are going to have 10 people over for waffles after church. Today was the inaugeral Kodatt Waffle House Brunch! We have wanted to have some sort of regular meal where we could host people in a rather casual manner. What inspired the waffle idea is our waffle maker--by far the nicest kitchen item we received for our wedding (it retails at Williams Sonoma for $100). For the first five years of our marriage we have pulled out this pricey item maybe 4 times total. A couple of weeks ago we were talking about this unused machine and decided we should make it earn its keep here. So dusting it off, heating it up, and setting the table with all the toppings, we were off... having our pastor and his family of 8 over for a carb-overloaded feast. So maybe we made too much batter and the eggs were a little tough and the bacon took a while and made a mess--but all in all, this is a Kodatt tradition from this day forward. These are some pictures snapped from the day (aren't I looking marmish in my apron?)--I meant to snap some shots of the feast but the feast itself took all my attention.
