Cool Whip-Dipped Waffles

My mom used to tell me stories about how my paternal grandfather--whom I never met--absolutely LOVED whipped cream.

And by LOVED, she would say that he'd eat whipped cream on pretty much anything--including, shall we say, non-edible "stuff" (not that he ever did).

Anyway, lately Big Brother has had an on again, off again love affair with waffles.

Makes no sense to me, other than he must get sick of eating them, then goes for weeks without any, and then suddenly they're the most popular cuisine again.

(I hope his relationship with his high school girlfriend doesn't take a similar course. Oh wait, he's not allowed to date until he's--what, Mom-E?--20, 25, 30? :)

Lately, we're pleased that his relationship with waffles is back on.

4 words: Thank you, Cool Whip. (Apparently this is also genetically mediated, just like picky eating.)

Yes, Big Brother absolutely LOVES to dip his waffles in Cool Whip (and would eat heaping amounts of straight Cool Whip if you don't watch him like a hawk).

(Note to self, check Cool Whip container for stray finger marks before use.)

Unfortunately, syrup is a completely different story. Still won't touch that.

In the meantime, I'm plotting use of Cool Whip as a dip for all kinds of foods--including new vegetables, chicken, pizza, and, of course, peanuts (because according to Little Brother, peanuts taste like waffles.)

Have a good week,


  1. He could have strawberries, blueberries and all kinds of assorted fruits with his waffles too.

  2. Whipped cream is a great condiment. Duncan has recently found a love of Duck Sauce which can be used for all manner of things that would clash with whipped cream.

  3. Cool Whip has to be the best invention since sliced bread! It's a rare person who doesn't like Cool Whip. Waffles and Cool Whip sound absolutely delicious! I think I'll have some for dessert tonight. BTW, it's amazing what passes on down through the genes, isn't it? :)

  4. I'm glad Big Brother has rekindled his love with waffles. I'm with grammy....fruit makes an excellent topping. THe fact that he isn't into syrup may be more of a blessing as the fruit (that we all know he loves) is better for him anyway! Happy waffle eating!love, aunt-e

  5. If Cool Whip works with veggies let me know!
