JoGail has been asking me to make homemade waffles. And since I have cooked something everyday of this break, why not? So I found this recipe and these waffles were out of this world! I limited myself to one since it was loaded with carbs, plus the syrup on top! It was soo good, though!

1 stick melted butter
2 cups flour
1/4 c brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 eggs well beaten
2 cups buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix well. Put in waffle iron to cook.

Gotten alot of stuff cleaned out from around the house this week. Everyone managed to fill a trash bag full of stuff to take to Goodwill. Actually that's what started the 'I want waffles thing". We found the waffle iron stashed under the kitchen cabinet. Coy has mowed (about time-we found 2 business cards tucked in the front door advertising lawn care services). He planted a palm tree--the only reason I can think of that he EVEN wanted one was because he saw one at Todd and Michelle's over Christmas. Personally if I want a tree I want shade or fruit. But it made him happy, so we have a pindo palm tree in the front flower bed. Wednesday I took the girls plus a friend and we went to the movies. Grace and Lindsey saw Coraline (Grace had read the book) and then I took JoGail and Boo to see Race to Witch Mountain. They enjoyed it. I enjoyed the popcorn. First time I had had that in a long time! Soccer is in full swing this weekend with a game tonight, two games tomorrow and a games Sunday afternoon. Plans for today include planning next week's menus and mopping and cleaning the bathrooms. I have put if off about as long as I can! With the syrup from the waffles this morning we can probably stick to the kitchen know my mopping theme, if you don't stick I don't mop! haha

Can somebody tell me how to tag my posts so that when I want to look for a recipe I can find it without going through all the rest????? I would also like to create an index by food type. I have seen it done but do not have a clue how to do that. Also, while I am begging for help, I won (YES, WON!!) an ipod nano from a company that does our ARD paperwork. Now I have it charged and songs loaded. But everytime I go to listen to it I can't get the volume where I want it. I need an ipod tutorial!!!

Glad you are cooking! I don't know what an ipod is. So no help from here. We've got a good pancake recipe I got from a maintenance worker out here.
We're killing time. At 11 we take a group from USC to the Amtrak station. Another 800 come in Monday. 43 years ago, I was washing pots and pans and garbage cans. Fast forward to today, I'm still doing the trash can thing!
Nothing really changes!LOL
