It's a historic day in the U.S., and indeed around the globe, as Barack Obama becomes America's first black president.
Celebrations are happening far and wide, not just south of the border but internationally, including here in Canada. There have been all sorts of tributes to the 44th U.S. president, but I quite like this one: The Obama Waffle!
Toronto restaurant The Waffle Works has created the yummy breakfast treat in honour of our American cousins and their new leader. It's a whole wheat cinnamon raisin waffle with velvety cream cheese on top.
The patriotic plate also includes some red (strawberries), white (whipped cream) and blue (blueberries), with an American flag to top it all off.
Here's a photo of The Obama Waffle in all its splendiferous deliciousness:
Happy Obama Day all!
