Lemon Buckwheat Waffles

February 20, 2014

A part of me wants to talk about how I have writer’s block, but that’s boring.

A part of me wants to talk about my love of lemon, but that’s old news.

A part of me wants to talk about how I saw a man on the Subway eating a whole chicken with his hands, but that’s irrelevant.

A part of me wants to talk about how I’m kind of obsessed with these pictures, but that goes against my modest nature (ahem sarcasm)

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.

A part of me wants to talk about how I  would rather be watching The Real World right now, but….so shameful.

A part of me wants to talk about how awesome these Lemon Buckwheat Waffles are, but instead I talked about absolutely nothing.

      hahaha it’s kind of remarkable how I wrote an entire post about waffles and only mentioned waffles in the last line. I’m such a food blogger fail!

    OMG I’m cracking up right now… just because of what you texted me about this post. But I really want to make these, I’m just terrible at making waffles. I’ll just have to wait to come to Toronto so you can make Ang and I waffles for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

    Girl. Not only do I not have a waffle maker but I don’t have buckwheat flour and there’s no way I’m finding that here in Mexico. I’ll just have to wait until you cave and post the oatmeal recipe…cuz I know it’s going to happen!

    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!

    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?

    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.

    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.
