In an effort to encourage cross-continental understanding, I didn't just declare tonight a lazy dinner night and post an interesting link. I went to the trouble of taking a photo of the jaffles I made for the kids (DP had some cheese ones) just so the American readers I have can truly understand what a jaffle is.
As you can see, it's just a toasted sandwich, but note the sealed edges. That allows for runny things like tinned spaghetti, leftovers, savoury mince, chilli (if you eat it) to get sealed in, and cooked without making too much mess. You need a jaffle iron to make this though, so be hitting eBay because my DP tells me you can't buy them in America. You poor things.
It's very handy on a night when you don't want a big dinner, or are feeling too lazy (or ill/tired/pregnant) to cook. And the kids love them.
So, that's my community service announcement for tonight, tune in tomorrow for menu plan monday, and now I'm going to watch the CSI/Without a Trace crossover.
