As busy as it was, I am very happy. I am happy because I get to do what I love everyday. I am happy because I have a guy who will take me to work at 4 am, endure my tired-crankiness, and still be excited to marry me. I am stoked that I didn't burn or botch a single one of the 700 cookies I made yesterday. I am pumped because I got to sleep for 12 hours last night and am most likely going to take a nap this afternoon. Things are pretty good.
Waffles are also pretty good.
These are dense, chewy, day-off waffles.
Truth be told, I made these waffles last Monday. Before the early mornings, 13 hour days and handfuls of deli ham. These make for a better lunch than deli ham- truth.
Take a simple buttermilk batter, add fall spices and throw it in your waffle iron.
These waffles are best served with pats of butter and warm maple syrup.
