A Yummy Find at Williams-Sonoma
I got a few gift cards this year for Christmas, which I love because then I can go after the holidays are over, shop, and it's like Christmas all over again. Among the gift cards I got this year, were two to Williams-Sonoma. One of my favorite places to browse, but not always purchase from because they tend to be a bit pricey. I often drool over certain items online but can never justify spending so much money on some of the items. Well the good thing about gift cards is you can buy the items you've been drooling over without the guilt because it's not your money you're spending. : )
So I went to Williams-Sonoma with my husband a few days ago, gift cards in hand, prepared to buy something, anything, but exactly what I didn't know. See, that's the problem with gift cards. It gives you endless options which can make for a tough decision. I told my husband not to rush me because I wanted to decide on the perfect gift for myself. Well, he was in the store five minutes and had already found something he wanted. This caramel apple waffle and pancake mix. And, it was on sale. I'm guessing it might be a seasonal item so I told him I'd go ahead and buy it for him with my gift card. ; )
We actually decided to have these waffles for dinner tonight. They were very delicious, a wise purchase by my husband. They have a caramely, cinnamony flavor and little chunks of apple throughout the mix. I had mine with warm syrup and pecans on top. Yummy!
In case you're wondering, I decided on this 8 qt multi pot with pasta insert and steamer basket. I figured it was something I could use for many different things and also something I most likely wouldn't go out and buy for myself. Yes, a very practical gift. : P
