If you want a sweet waffle, you can use mozzarella cheese that have a mild taste. Maybe add some sweetener if you are into that, some cinnamon and cardamom if like and then serve with whipped crème and berries or jam.
Maybe some sour crème, chopped red onion and fish roe, yum. But with the ordinary one you can eat them like tortillas and roll in the good stuff.

Another layer of What is julmust in English? pants and sweater, a bit thicker than the base layer 4. Woolen sweatpants and a knitted wool sweater.
The outer clothes consist either of a woolen overall or my old set of thicker padded cotton jacket and pant.

the plant are blooming. The guidelines are just for making the most out of every herb. Be sure to pick the right ones! There are a lot of herbs that look alike, some are harmless but some are not. You can absolutely use the herbs for several years but as time goes, they lose some of their good properties, best is to pick new ones every year, but to have the herbs for a couple of years is ok.
You can also make an herbal oil with fresh herbs but then you will need more flowers than if they are dried and the oil will have water in it which makes the oil less shelf stable. Fill the jar with herbs and cover everything with oil, see that the oil gets above the herbs. Not as important if you used completely dried herbs. But it is still nice to have a clean oil without plant parts in it.
