If my coworkers ever see me limping into the office on crutches, they should probably not assume I was kickboxing. Let’s not be ridiculous…
If they knew me at all, they would probably bring up this Office classic:
Except that it would be more accurate to replace “Foreman grill” with “waffle iron.”
I’m clumsy, but that’s neither here nor there–what I’m saying is, I’ve been making a LOT of waffles lately. And if I did have a kitchen appliance in my bedroom a la Michael Scott… It would be a Belgian waffle iron.
Anyway. The appliances will stay where they are for now, but still–no slowing down with the waffles! Inspired by these pear-gorgonzola beauties, I forge ahead. This time, there are cured pork products too.

Sometimes I can tell I’m going to be controversial. Today is… Such a time. Hide yo kids, hide yo pets, hide yo everybody. Politics! (Kidding) Religion! (Kidding) Stinky cheese in waffles! (Not kidding)
You might like weird food. You might like sweet-and-savory things. You might even like pears and gorgonzola together, which is generally accepted as a good combination. …Aaannnd, you might still not be on board, but that’s okay. I can’t promise you’ll like this–can I ever? I can only tell you I loved it, and why. So here goes!

I’ll say it: I’m (very temporarily, I’m sure) over the carbmania of the holiday season. The pancakes. The breads. The rolls. It must (very temporarily) stop. This is exactly what I want for a lazy weekend breakfast these days: savory, fairly light and delicious. Way delicious.
May I suggest this (and mimosas DUH) for New Year’s brunch?
Because I like to know where things come from (like babies–someone ENLIGHTEN ME), I will mention that it’s an adapted version of shakshouka, a dish of Middle Eastern origin.
