Happy National Waffle Day!
I'm a fan of waffles, and whenever I stay at a hotel that has a waffle maker as part of the breakfast, I'll make one. I especially like the Texas shaped waffles. iI haven't seen other states shaped like waffles have you?
Anyway today Aug 24 is National Waffle Day. Why? On this day in 1869, a man named Cornelius Swartwout received the first U.S. patent for a waffle iron.
Did you know that the first waffles originated in Ancient Greece? It’s true! The Greeks would cook flat cakes called “obelios” between two metal pans held over a fire.
