Ahhh, EOMEOTE, my favorite foodblogging event! I love the story behind it, i love the low-rent spirit of it, and i love the eats. *contented sigh* This month, continuing with the spend-less-on-food project currently underway here Chez Foodnerd, I am trying to eat all the stuff I have stashed around my larder. Today breakfast was the last of the frozen waffles that have been kicking around the freezer for well over a year, plus a last bit of magic bacon I forgot about in the fridge, the meyer lemon marmalade I made last week -- too thick because I am incompetent with all sugared foods but delicious still, and boiled cider that my mother gave me at Christmas.

Waffles are I suppose not technically toast, but I think these qualify for two reasons: 1, they were dredged up out of mealtime desperation, and 2, they were prepared in the toaster. Boiled cider is quite lovely, and I am glad to have the excuse to blog about it -- it looks and functions like maple syrup, but it's got the tangy fruitiness of apples, so it's much lighter feeling than maple. Tallasiandude didn't dig it so much; he got out the maple to go with his EOMEOTE, which also he deconstructed so it was more an EOME next to TE. But mine was a salty, bacon-fatty, tangy treat, with the tart lemon and cider sparking up the egg and bacon and waffle into something really rather nice.

That first post, such a humble huble start with 2.5 participants.

I'm glad you had the excuse to blog about boiled cider because that's the first I've heard of it. Waffles are fine and have been clarified as "any carbohydrate based foodtuff subjected to heat", "on" is very loose, and anyway I'd hate it if the event stopped people eating waffles.

Good job and sympathise with the sugar thing, I suck at desserts.

Oooh...I'm intrigued by the boiled cider. Is this something you make, or can it be purchased? I think my toddler would adore this...and he eats a Lot of waffles!

I expect you could make it by boiling down cider, but this was purchased. My mom mail ordered it -- follow the link in the post, or google it, as it looks like there are a couple of purveyors. I dig it, and i bet little kids would too, especially waffle eatin' ones. :-)
