Today is my birthday! My mother inlaw used to send me flowers each year for my birthday because she knew how much I loved yellow roses. The funny thing is that she used to sign them from my husband. After a few years he was outed when I said thank you for the beautiful roses and he responded with “what roses”. Yeah, oops. Now my mother inlaw signs them from herself and it makes it all the more special. This year I got them on Saturday and got to enjoy them all weekend.
Also this weekend I made Peanut Butter Waffles from Vegan Brunch. I ate them today too so it totally counts as birthday waffles! Unfortunately this is one of my least favourite waffle recipes. The recipe touts it can use any flour and still turn out. I used whole wheat pastry flour and whole wheat flour and I found them way too dense. They tasted okay, but the texture is off. I’m sure they would have been much better if I had stuck to all purpose flour. Reheated they are a bit crumbly and meh. These would be great with a drizzle of nutella but I opted for strawberry jam and bananas. And of course, extra peanuts!
Now, off to work and Millennium for dinner. I’m denying I’m sick, but I have a dry cough. Nothing a little dayquil won’t take care of, I hope!
