Sometimes inspiration is right in front of you. As you may know I love sweet but I also love sweet, savory and spicy. This morning I made waffles. For me that means Bruces Sweet Potato Pancake and Waffle mix. I usually chop up two strips of thick bacon to render the grease and make the lardons crispy. I use this as the oil for the waffles and to have something savory in the waffle. I then looked around to find the sweet. Before me was some honey from the Cash & Carry farmers market. Also the remnant syrup from some sweet and spicy jalapenos I had bought there also. Finally some leftover sauce from a Richards Shrimp and Garlic Linguine that was too good to throw out. So I mixed them altogether and had a really great syrup to put on my waffles. Backnote of garlic, butter to melt on there, nice spicy and vinegary taste to cut the sweetness of the honey. It went well against the sweet potato and bacony waffle. Hmm next time I think maybe mixing in butter and Cochon's Habanero Sweet Potato hot sauce

That bowl of cafe au lait looks as good as the waffle.

I broke down and ordered some Union Coffee. Just using up my CDM. Next weekend will start using it and also show how I make my cafe au lait
