Currently: sitting in the corner of our sectional (best seat in the place), watching Friends, S03 E03. Joey is sitting at Monica’s table, eating currant jam.
I have been watching the show Friends from the beginning — and while many people would follow that by saying, “for the seventh time,” for me, this is a first. And I’m addicted. Typically when we put on anything after 8pm, be it a show or a movie, I’m guaranteed to be asleep in 15 minutes. While I really enjoyed the first season of West World, for example, the second season put me to sleep every Sunday. But Friends is different. I’m not sure if it’s because the show uses minimal brain power to watch, or because each episode is only 20 minutes long on Netflix, but I can watch until at least 10pm before feeling like I need to go to bed.
There was a week earlier this summer when both Oliver and our room mate were out of town, and I was left to my own devices when it came to figuring out how to turn the TV on (I’m going to sound old saying this but, Do we really need four remotes?) and choosing what to watch (my preferred decision-making technique is to plop down on the couch and watch what ever is already on). But there I was, with the entire sectional to myself, flipping through Netflix. The rest is history — or it will be, when I finish the series… for now, binge watching friends is a bit like my version of Saturday morning cartoons (remember those?), and that means a plateful of waffles is in order!
Serves: 4 | Active Time: 30 minutes
- Heat a non-stick waffle iron. (If your iron is not non-stick, grease it generously).
- In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, coconut milk, and vanilla. Add in coconut flour, baking soda, and salt and stir until a runny batter forms.
- Give the batter one more quick whisk and then pour 1/4 cup of batter into the middle of the waffle iron. Close the iron, and cook until golden — about 5-10 minutes.
- Repeat step 3 until all batter is used; Serve hot topped with fresh peaches, toasted pecans, butter, and maple syrup.
