    You got this

    I'll be having waffles
    The challenge is getting all those little squares filled up

    Yeah, good stuff
    But when I see what they're asking for a pint of it, I head to the baking section and get the Maplene

    However, changing up the routine with sorghum is nice

    And what to fill the squares with, syrup or butter? Or lots of both? I vote the latter!

    Damn, now I want waffles too!

    Yeah it's not cheap, I think I usually get it for about $7 a pint, but I've seen it as high as $11.

    I make a marinade for chicken and pork that's 50% maple syrup and 50% terryaki sauce with some minced garlic. Let it sit overnight and cook it on the bbq or bake in the oven, it's very good.

    Growing up I used to really like sorghum molasses on hot biscuits but never tried it on waffles.

    This looks like it might be pretty good smeared thick on a hot out of the oven slice of bread or biscuit.

    Love waffles.
    I prefer real maple syrup but my guy prefers molasses or fake maple syrup.
    His pancakes/ waffles drown in the stuff

    That’s it. Apple cinnamon waffles for supper. Butter. Mmm.
    Love is a verb.

    Actually, I've been watching my weight
    Not a big contest, but would like to see myself below the 200 lb mark
    Summer, I lose, no matter what I eat
    Winter, I gain, no matter what I don't eat
    I'm at 205 right now, so the target is within range

    The waffles didn't stay with me long, so not too worried about this morning's breakfast

    Tomorrow, oatmeal

    Put the screens on today
    So, other than the pressure treated landing, my spin shack project is done.




    My lady began moving in before my screw gun could cool off





    Maybe now I’ll get in gear to build that sauna before winter gives us the cold shoulder

    I made blueberry waffles smothered in butter and maple syrup with some confectionery sugar on top for breakfast yesterday. They were delicious! Good thing it was a rainy day, after eating all those carbs all I wanted to do was sleep.

    I really like the side window detail!

    Forget the sauna you'll need to build a barbershop when the angora rabbits start to arrive!

    All that spin shack needs now is a visit from Rumpelstiltskin.

    You got this, JW

    I had to settle for homemade cinnamon rolls swimming in butter
    (my lady is NOT! helping my quest to break 200 lbs)
