We here a Chez Monkey are big, BIG, Alton Brown fans.

Duhdee records all of his shows on our DVR  for easy reference.  I’ll buy the cookbook coming out this fall.  Whenever we want to try a new food we check with Alton first.  The geekiness combined with the yumminess is just irresistible!

So, when Duhdee bought himself a new toy I thought, “Alton would not approve.  It is a uni-tasker!”  The new toy was delivered today and tomorrow Duhdee will be preparing us WAFFLES!  Yes, Duhdee is the sort of guy who buys himself a “toy” and it is actually a professional waffle maker….and he buys it from Woot! at a killer price even…this man is a keeper!

I immediately started chiding him about his slick new uni-tasker.  Duhdee took the position that sometimes you just need a uni-tasker, nothing else will do…that Alton would agree.  Five minutes later I was on the Alton Brown website buying Duhdee two new t-shirts and some nifty plunger cups…not because Duhdee was right (and he was but do NOT tell him I admitted that TYVM) but because, as I said, the geekiness is irresistible.

And, yes, that is our entertainment here on a Saturday night..that’s just how we roll here at Chez Monkey.

    TYVM??? Waffles — that sounds fantastic. Let us know how they come out. Belgium type waffles or just plain. Load them up with strawberries and whipped cream — Yummmmmmmmy.

    Duhdee is just cooking the waffles now, he’s using Alton’s basic waffle recipe. I did request ice cream with mine but Duhdee muttered something about that being “dessert” and ignored me!

    (TYVM = Thank you very much)
