Yeasted Whole Wheat-Vanilla Waffles
Coconut Whipped Cream
(+ Record Shopping & Sky Gazing).
Last week was kind of shitty. Lots of unanticipated stress and weirdness. Lots of scattered thoughts and interrupted sleep, lots of anxious heart pounding, lots of forgetting to eat for an entire day. Nothing earth shattering, just...disrupting. So the weekend called for some serious food therapy, hence waffles, and some serious soul therapy, hence flipping through bins of musty old records.
Both helpful in their own ways, though one smells significantly better.
A little riff on an old favorite because, as we all know,
everything's better with coconut.
