Waffles! Reply

Today I’m thinking about waffles after reading this morning’s political demographics article in the Washington Post. I don’t live in the US Southeast, where those Waffle House restaurants are. We make them at home and you can, too. These are the easiest and have a wonderful sourdough flavor. Here’s my overnight refrigerator waffle recipe, great for house guests.

I have more evening energy than Where is My Coffee?! morning energy.  🙂 I like to chat, not beat egg and separate egg whites in the morning.  This nice photo is a few years old, from a Michigan blogger. Those huckleberries look like our backyard variety here.

Overnight refrigerator waffles

2 ½ c. warm water
1 T. yeast
1 t. sugar
2/3 c. dry milk
1/3 c. oil
½ t. salt
½ t. baking soda
2 large eggs
3 c. All Purpose flour

Blend the water, yeast and sugar and let it proof for 5 minutes, if you don’t trust your yeast. Add the other stuff and beat until smooth. Cover and chill overnight, or up to 4 days. I put it into a half gallon pitcher in the fridge, covered. It will rise and spill out if the pitcher is too small. Stir before baking in your waffle iron.

Be sure to cover it and know that it may push you lid’s limits. Made me think of the article above. :-)ke them right away, no falling egg whites. Just blue skies, coffee, morning paper, pass the huckleberries and maple syrup. Maybe a little more coffee.

Stretch out those Dog Days… 2

How has August raced half-way through?! This is the good part of summer for me and I hope you’re enjoying it too.

It is 93 right now, cooler in this old house. Days are flipping off the calendar, too Fast:

  • Zucchini every day, blueberries , sugar pod peas and cherry tomatoes to pick
  • Evenings knitting with John Merriman European History lectures (free!)
  • Daily Arsenic Hour*- well, ~4pm, time to cool off with smoothies. *Named from when toddlers got cranky. 🙂
  • Juggling laundry, quilting, web sites, data bases, cooking, deadheading, prepping for family visit…
  • Auditioning wedding flowers, “sunset colors” for next summer- good friends. 🙂
