The Angel (me) and the Devil (him)

Yep, you read that right! While I’m dieting and trying to lose a few more pounds, Jim keeps baking cookies and biscotti and teasing me with them. I can walk away from the biscotti, but cookies are my kryptonite.

Despite his evil, wicked ways, I still bake him sourdough bread every few days, even though I’m not eating it with him, and yesterday I fed my sourdough, mixed up a pre-ferment, and this morning made him sourdough waffles.

I mean, would you look at that glorious batter? These are the most amazing waffles. Yep, I’m an angel. never cared for waffles at all until I tried King Arthur Flour’s sourdough version. Over the years, I’ve changed that to a healthier version that tastes even better than the original.

Here’s my version. You can use walnut oil or butter. I used butter this morning for Jim… I adore the flavor of walnut oil but since I’m depriving myself… butter it is.

Meanwhile, I have consumed nine… yes nine of his latest oatmeal cookies.

I’m off to get fitted for walking shoes. And perhaps a tent.
