Here are some things I have discovered in the past two days.

#1- My Boys are very, VERY CUTE while they sit quietly on the couch, and they love each other too!
#2-Bruges, Waffles and Frites can be found in Salt Lake City just north of Pioneer Park. It's address is 336 W Broadway. It is a very small Belgian restaurant, in fact it is so small that they only serve two types of food....which you will see soon.
#3- My Boys are very, Very Cute while sitting outside Bruges-I said it was a small restaurant, they only have a counter inside to eat at but quite a few tables outside.
#4- Belgian Waffles, made by people from Belgium, are REALLY GOOD! They had pretty big chunks of large sugar crystals in them, Ken enjoyed that part the most. This is a picture of my waffle, unlike Ken's, mine was COVERED in delicious Chocolate, I am going to go out on a limb and say that it was Belgian Chocolate, but that is just a guess. I saw them making the waffles and discovered something interesting, they didn't use thin Batter- it was more like dough, I need a recipe. Really, they were so good I may never eat another waffle, unless of course it is a Belgian Waffle, made by someone from Belgium.
#5- Machine Guns are edible! Really, this sandwich is called a Machine Gun, or in French a "Mitraillette". It is made by placing a lamb sausage or two inside a fresh baguette, then covering that with "Frites" and a yummy, yummy sauce. Don't get Frites confused with American style French Fries, these lovely frites are double fried, once to cook them, then a second time to crisp them, and boy oh boy are they good.
Great, now I am hungry again.

Yummy! I can't even imagine how delicious those waffles are. I know what we're having for dinner tonight. Of course they won't be nearly as good.

Most french fries ARE double fried, at non-fast-food places. A lot of restaurants fry them at a low temperature to cook them through and then keep them cool until they are ordered, then they refry them at a higher temperature. It makes the insides soft and the outsides crispy.

Yum! I tried some of the waffles in Belgium when we were there and I had some of the sausage in a bagette in France. Very good.
