yeah, i said it-
obviously, if there are magic words that you must say at the beginning of the month,
you'd best believe i'm gonna do exactly that.
rules is rules, after all.
and when you know 'em, you might wanna follow 'em-
especially if they're there to summon spirit and memory and fortune
and fresh-to-death favorable outcomes.
so i said the thing, first thing, straight from opened eyes to opened mouth.
that's how you do it, if you plan to do it.
and out into the aether erupted the sacred syllables:
...and now the whole damned month is gonna be molto expert.
that's how that works.
and when i said bye bye to june, i did it with six tattoos-
but before all of that, i made some crissspy waffles.
check 'em out:
WAFFLES ARE TIIIIIGHT!
and when you 100% overdo it?
when the whole shootin' match goes to eleven?
then you know you're dope, and your morning is dope,
and your whole life might get a baby bit better because of it.
real maple syrup? ✔
blueberry-raspberry compote? ✔
coconut whipped cream? ✔
vanilla non-dairy ice cream? ✔
kapowdered sugary sprankles??! ✔✔
too much is the right amount, and if you aren't committed to that,
we aren't having brekkie together, bro.
so, whaddya need?
in a small sauce pot, on medium heat, combine:
1/4 cup powdered sugar;
1 tsp vanilla;
1/4 tsp lemon zest;
1/4 tsp lemon extract;
1 cup wild maine blueberries;
1/2 cup frozen raspberries...
get that all liquidy and wet and soft,
then remove 3 t of liquid, add 2 tsp organic non-GMO cornstarch,
add in, and turn up the heat.
stir the whole thing until it thickens, quickle, then get ready to have your face
explode with joy at the full bodied textural triumph of this stuff.
that's no joke.
and the waffs themeselves?
heat up your waffle iron.
in a mixing bowl,
2/3 cup king arthur ap flour;
1/4 tsp salt;
1/2 cup oat flour;
3 T ground unsweetened coconut;
1 tsp ea baking soda and powder;
3 T sugar;
3 T melted vegan butter;
1/4 cup vegan sour creme;
1 cup plus 2 T non-dairy ilk;
2 tsp vanilla.
stir it up, rest it for fifteen minutes or more,
then let the iron do it's job.
i told you already- it's easy.
and now it's july.
today is the day.
i got cinnamon buns in the oven,
i got the calendar page flipped,
i have all the positive mental attitude i can muster up.
july is the start of for really real sunmmertime.
this is it.
and it's one of the better months, tbh.
i can only think of like, two people who are from july who are awful.
almost everybody else is pretty cool when they're a julyer.
i think that's a rule.
and i do love a good rule;
never quiet, never soft.....
