A part of me wants to talk about how I attempted to photograph my latest oatmeal recipe before eating anything and the wicked witch of the west came out to play, but today we’re talking waffles.

A part of me wants to talk about how I wished you guys had voted for the oatmeal instead of the waffles in my Facebook and Twitter poll because I actually have something to write about the oatmeal, but you didn’t.

  1. Lemons all day err’ day! They really never get old. Writer’s block has been the death of me lately. I think every post I write is abut nothing but then it some how turns into a weird, irrelevant smorgasbord that gets me to the recipe in some form or another. Whatever works, yo!

  2. Um… the guy eating chicken with his bare hands is ALL I want to talk about. I hate your damn waffles now – WHERE IS THIS MAN. BRING HIM TO ME.

    Arman says you guys are road tripping to Alberta? Why didn’t you tell me? Why do you hate me?

  3. These really do sound good, but I would like to hear about the guy eating the whole chicken with his hands. The writers block, I have been so tired at night and stressed with school and work that other than talking about stress I’m lost.

  4. Oh lord…I just gagged a little about the story with the man and the chicken….BLEH! That’s just nasty. I don’t do meat on the bone…ESPECIALLY not on a flippin Subway!
    Anyway, these look amazing! Im a huge lemon lover too. The lemon and blueberry combo is one of my favorites!!

  5. Part of me wants to tell you that you made waffles look sexy. Like… the kind of breakfast you’d eat after a crazy wild night sexy. But part of me thinks I shouldn’t mention it because it just makes me sound like a weirdo. Oops.

  6. A part of me now wants a waffle maker. Another part of me also wants to hear more about the chicken-eating man on the subway. A part of me also wants to buy a camera so that I might have pretty photos of my food too.

  7. Part of me wants to know more about this man on the subway. Are Canadian subway cars magically germ free or did he have a tub of Purell handy before ripping into chicken with his hands? I’m both mystified and horrified.

  8. I’m totally going to say hello these lemon waffles one morning soon. They look great and have to smell awesome.

  9. A man eating a whole chicken!? What the what!?

    Your love for lemon is like my love for passionfruit & coconut (I think they go together personally).

    Your photos are always so amazing! I wish I was as good as you!
