So why does your diet or budget say waffles instead of pancakes? I  
thought the ingredients for both were fairly similar. And while  
pancakes can be made on a simple griddle or in a frying pan, waffles  
require a special iron.

I got a waffle iron for a Christmas present from my Mom similar to  
what we had when I was growing up, but I've yet to try making waffle  
batter from scratch and cook with it. I think both pancake and waffle  
mixes can be bought in the store, as well as frozen waffles. I much  
prefer the home made ones even when they've been frozen and re-warmed  
and toasted in the toaster for later breakfasts.  My other problem is  
that I shouldn't use the regular syrups, because of my diabetes, and  
haven't found a diet syrup which didn't taste of the cheaper sugar
