like tom and meg

A plate of warm classic homemade waffles paired with a scoop of freezer-cold chocolate fudge ice-cream, teased with a drizzle of strawberry syrup.

My favourite on-plate couple to complement my all-time favourite on-screen couple strutting their stuff in 1998’s You’ve Got Mail.

Who are your favourite pairs?

Classic Waffles

    WAFFLES!!! (pronounced wah-fleys) πŸ˜›

    Those look gorgeous!!! What happened to the ice cream? Did Mr. Shnopy eat it? I already told him he needs to cut down on them desserts, man! -_-‘

    Well my favourite onscreen pair is (of course) John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale from Serendipity! Lurve that movie! πŸ˜€
