..And in the Mornin’, I’m making WAFFLES!
January 18, 2010 § 5 Comments
I mixed up a waffle batter so we could have waffles yesterday morning, but due to a series of unfortunate instances, it sat until today, so I made waffles today. We’re going to bring them over to our friends’ house for dinner. I love breakfast for dinner!
I also have some flour on to soak for bread tomorrow. I’ve been experimenting with different wheats. I liked the texture of the hard white spring wheat– it was as soft as Wonder bread! but preferred the deeper flavor of the hard red winter wheat. So today, I did half and half to see what we get texture and taste-wise.
I also doubled the recipe, since we seem to go through bread like nobody’s business. Well, it’s my go-to take-along item when visiting. I hate showing up to places empty handed. I don’t know if it was my Southern upbringing, but it seems to be the cardinal sin of visiting folks to show up without a loaf of bread, a bottle of wine, or some kind of sweet to share. I feel all awkward and uncomfortable on those rare occasions I’ve neglected to bring something along. And i hate picking something up from the store in the way. It feels like I’m letting people down if I didn’t make it from scratch with my own two hands.
I know that these are my own insane internal rules for visiting and sharing, but I figure all the better for my friends. If only I was so OCD about keeping a neat house.
