Perfectly Fluffy Whole Wheat Waffles

Photobucket

There’s a story being written in the bedroom next to mine. I can hear my girls whispering over it. Every minute or so there is an exclamation, “yeah!” or “that’s awesome!” or”after a day or two, the evil woman comes back,” followed by the reassuring words of a big sister helping her little sister with belated homework. “You can totally finish! We’re almost done!”

It’s nights like this when I wonder why I blog. Me, sitting under the covers of a king-sized bed, touching up photos of waffles, staring at shiny mounds of blueberries, when there are two little girls next door who’s faces I could marvel at incessantly. Whatever am I doing clacking away here when there are stories to write, encouragement to give, evil women to shoo from the written page?

Well, I suppose what I’m doing is letting my girls be sisters. Letting them learn how to work together. Letting them make memories they will one day giggle over. I am letting them become their own selves. The sorts of people they will be when one day they leave me.

I’m also willing to suppose that such a thing will all be fine and dandy (even necessary) one day, I don’t think I’m quite ready for such a thing to happen today. So, Clacking Computer Keys, you will simply have to sit quietly tonight. Dearest blog, you’ll have to suffice with a short entry. Because the most delicious little girls I know are writing stories in the room next to mine. And, you know I’m a sucker for dessert.Photobucket

    I think I'll be topping mine this week with cranberry maple syrup (=leftover cranberry sauce + maple syrup).

    In the event of a zombie apocalypse, residents of Montevallo, AL should have an effective
    plan for dealing with the crisis. Who’s gonna keep ‘em down.
    Who even knows if it will happen.

    This 5-quart model will help you make casseroles, soup, and roasts easily.
    A crock pot that can be removed from the heating element (or base) is helpful for browning meats.

    Because the lid will be sitting snugly on the pot during the
    slow cooking, liquid will be generated as a by-product.

    - Rodeo: This is a famous restaurant in Delhi that shall be described as a Tex
    Mex place. There are two ways to go about this, firstly, change your diet and secondly use some natural products that help adjust your
    sugar levels without the side effects. Their style of toppings is what makes the pizzas delicious.

    There are so many types and brands of electric shavers on the market, and each of them has their own use and benefits.

    So, one needs to make sure that they are choosing the shaver that can shave with
    maximum performance with little effort. As you might have guessed
    the Braun Series 7 790cc Shaver is quite strong in both of these categories.
