Hello my WONDERFUL friends!
I hope you are feeling as fantastical as I am right now! I just finished reading through all of your SWEET comments on yesterday’s “funkified” post and I am SO filled with joy…seriously, if you were in the room with me right now, I’d annoy the piss out of you! 😉
I’m sure a great deal of my funk has to do with the whole “winter blues” thing. I just never feel like I have enough “day” to get stuff done! Guess it’s a good thing that…
SPRING is only THREE WEEKS AWAY!! 😀
Until then, since my mood is not ONLY dependent on the weather but ALSO on the amount of deliciousness in my life, I’ve been trying my best to listen to my body lately and give it what it wants…
Which brings me to the title of this post!
I know what you’re thinking…”But Heather, we ALL know you don’t make waffles!”
But as of yesterday…oh, I most certainly DO!
I have no idea where it came from but as I rolled over in bed yesterday
morning afternoon, I was hit with the biggest, most INTENSE CRAVING for waffles! As I stumbled my way into the kitchen, I siked myself up Rocky style (puh-LEEEASE click that!) and fought back the terrifying images of waffles past…
I whipped up my batter, poured it into my THOROUGHLY greased waffle iron, closed the lid and crossed my fingers!
Once that little orange light went off, I took a deep breath…
I slowly put my hand on the handle…
I lifted up…
IT DIDN’T STICK!!!
I’d like to say this is the product of some INTENSE kitchen research…countless days of measuring…complex mathematical equations to get just the right ratios of ingredients, but…?
It was a total FLUKE!
A complete, oh-my-god-I-can’t-believe-this-actually-worked FLUKE!
Quick! Somebody get me a lotto ticket! 😉

Now hopefully, Jenn will forgive me for not having a complete What I Ate Wednesday post today, because I’m sorry
I’m not sorry, but there was NO WAY I keeping this bit of luck to myself any longer, plus I geeked out a little with the thought of getting to use more alliteration! 😆
Besides, I think I could persuade her by acting on a few of her “special” cravings… 😉
When was the last time you got lucky?
Keep it clean people!
