Oh right, the waffles.
I did promise.
But I'll get to them afterwards.
As a continuation of the weekend, I ate even more on Saturday. Yeah, I know.
My husband received Dave Chappelle tickets for his birthday and the show was in Providence at 10pm. We decided upon Trattoria Zooma in Federal Hill, the Italian section of the city. We love us some Italian so this was perfect.
I had a drink with cinnamon and whiskey. Amazing combination for a chilly, fall night. Also, the bread came with a basil butter that I could have slurped.
For dinner, I had the Orecchiette con Pancetta which is "little ears pasta" with peas, pancetta, cream, and Percorino Romano.
Aren't the little pastas cute?
Tim had the Capasante Occhio di Bue which was scallops with cacio e pepe (cheese and pepper) risotto with asparagus and HUGE pieces of pancetta topped with a soft egg.
After dinner, we still had some time to kill and stumbled upon an amazing bar call the Eddy. We almost passed by thinking it was a club or something. But it turned out to be a teeny but funky place with only a few tables and a small bar. And menu of wicked awesome craft cocktails. At first we had a standing spot then we were able to sit at the bar. The bartender was hypnotizing since he really knew his stuff. We had two drinks each full of cool ingredients like absinthe, demerara syrup (a caramel-like syrup), and black walnut bitters (not together, in different drinks). I highly recommend this place if you are in Providence and just want some really cool drinks. They have small bites too. Sorry, no pics. It was too dark inside.
On Sunday morning, I made yeasted waffles which is something I've alway wanted to do. Also, I had some apples and apple cider I wanted to incorporate.
The waffle batter has yeast in it and it rises for at least an hour but can be overnight in the fridge.
I didn't make each component of the original recipe here but did use the waffles and apples portion of it. Amazing, let me tell you. I included the recipe below just for you!
