Yeah, I agree. If you want a big breakfast, it'd be easier to just go out for breakfast. sweatdrop Waffles are easy 'coz it's just like more complicated toast...

I don't make bad waffles unless I don't add sugar because I know someone who can't eat sugar and wants a waffle


Also I've been thinking about either per-making them or buying the boxes and just adding water. Now that there are a few more people who want in (still yet to be confirmed though) if I buy the boxes are people cool with chipping ng $2-4 dollars?

I am more than happy to chip in money to eat delicious, delicious waffles. Still cheaper than a cafe! :3

@Alice: Again, if you want a big kiwi breakfast, just eat out. n_n;; We want as little stress as possible, and trying to cook a big breakfast in a public space is not going to help to that end.

Backpackers I've gone to have all those basics there, so I'd say you'll get all the utensils you need.

@Rolly
What JVCA said

Also it'll be nicer out. They'll have better flavour and less stress in making it AND you won't have to do dishes~


PLUS you don't know what other people in the backpackers will want to use to make their own breakfast ^_^;

I'm saying we should eat Waffles at the backpackers on Saturday morning. If Alice wants a kiwi breakfast though (sunday morning, maybe? Idk, not sure I could afford it, lol) then a cafe would be better for that. Uh. Does that clear up confusion? sweatdrop

I don't think they do waffles at MickyD's anyway, so that works out pretty well, actually. Razz

Sorry for the confusion - yeah, Mandie and Jess is right.


Keeping things simple will be much easier - having said that, I think I prefer waffles over something fried and oily for breakfast. :)

And yes, I'm willing to chip in a bit for waffles!

If we get recommendations for meals from some Dunners or something... *hint hint*?

I want Bubble Tea now... haha!

There are cheap easy to find satay places in DnDn. But if you are talking breakfasts then you are limited to what is open.

Post By Mandie_Chan. 10/04/10, 03:19 am

lol I wasn't to worried about somewhere to have breakfast
I'M MAKING WAFFLES!

Satay places aye? cheap? Sounds good to me
though I do wish there was an Oasakas >_<




OH AND UPDATE ON WAFFLES!!!
I can get decent pre-mixes in Chch for $3-ish.
I figure 1 pack will make about 10 waffles. People usually eat 3-5 on average so it'll probably be about $1.50 each to pay for it and what ever is left could either pay for toppings (like fruits/ice cream/chocolate/maple syrup - if Jess would rather spread the cost)
Also would people rather have to much waffle mixture or less? Coz at the moment I'm thinking we either get 4 (maybe 5) boxes for 10 people depending on how much you think you will eat.

um... yes that is all~
I think :think:


edit:
oh and could 1 person in Dunedin check the prices of waffle mix at your local supermarket? (it's in the baking isle) because if they are more expensive there I'll buy them in Chch before we leave~
Though its not urgent or anything ^_^;

for the sake of organization, i'd like to remind that this is a closed thread... by all means start one for your own backpackers group, but this was really created to organize stuff between the people in our own private 10 person dorm which is already proving to be a feat in itself. <: ;;

I have split Highlander's post off into a new thread. :)

As for waffles, I think if we buy 5 boxes of mix for the 10 of us then we should be good? 'Coz really, if there's leftovers it's not like we won't be able to use them. nyahaha Also, some people eat more than others anyway. *shrug* On the toppings thing - I reckon it'd be better if we could all chip in - that way we can get a bit more variety too. Very Happy How far away is the nearest supermarket? If waffle mix isn't that expensive there, then maybe we should all just take a hike down and buy toppings/waffle mix all in one lot? (I want to say ICE-CREAM too for the waffles, but that might be pushing it, lol)

Ice cream and waffles is the best. I'd be willing to put money forward for that.

Yeah, I figure it's not like we're gunna have to worry about leftover ice-cream - one tub between 10 people will go down very quickly (that's like a scoop each maybe? Idk, I suck with quantities). If the supermarket is nearby then we can just buy a tub in the morning rather than leaving it in the communal freezer (if there is one?).
