Buttermilk Waffles


Buttermilk Waffles are a common thing in my house. A favorite of my man and me. We have a slick waffle oven and the finest recipe on hand. The recipe is from an older version of the Joy of Cooking, and is truly a winner. This time around we added oh so delicious blueberries. The key to excellent waffles is to remember to put in all the ingredients. Leaving any out, especially ones as significant as butter will yield fine but not optimal results.

I light candles the way my grandmother does. I think she prays in Hungarian, her mother tongue. She lights three candles in three modest candlesticks, holds her palms open near to the flame gently massaging the warm air for a few seconds and covers her eyes for a few minutes. She emerges in tears. Similarly, I hold my hands over the flames, the warmth feels good on my face. I don’t feel I am praying as much as I am sending vibes. I hope for health and happiness for my family and friends. I take a minute to reflect on the week that past and another for the one ahead. I try not to waste those precious few moments I dedicate to reflection each week. I prefer to not take the time than to do so with haste. I try not to forget, because for some reason it just doesn’t feel the same if my grandmother and I are not doing it on the same day. I don’t yet cry, I’m just starting out.

Well Here I Go

It's taken me a long time, but it seem as though perhaps I've done it? ok now, content.
