Cin-fully Good Waffles!

February 16, 2013

I had a big meal earlier and so wanted some little thing for the evening meal.  Hmmmm . . . waffles!  I read recently of making homemade dessert in minutes by making brownies in the waffle maker. Make the batter in which ever way you like but scoop some into the waffle maker instead of the baking pan and in 5 minutes or less you’ll be adding ice cream.  Yum.  Haven’t tried it yet, but it got me thinking.

S0, last time I grocery shopped I saw the store brand “tube” of cinnamon rolls was on sale and picked up a package.  Oh, were they good.  In my waffle maker it took about 4 minutes.  The “tubes” of rolls come with frosting, but I’m not into overly sweet things, so I popped them out of my waffle maker and added a bit of butter only.  My whole main floor smells AMAZING and I had a simple and yummy evening meal.  I put the rest of the tube of rolls in a zipper bag and into the refrig for another meal.  Try it!  Think outside the tube!

Don’t have a waffle maker?  Check your local thrift shops.  I found mine at a small thrift shop in town for just 2.00!


Today’s Smart Cookie

May 30, 2012

Okay, so thinking the sky was gonna fall last night kept Mom and I both awake.  Today, we be tired!  It is with that in mind that I offer you wisdom from a cookie.  Yes, Mom offered to treat me to lunch at the local Chinese place.  Between the two of us we had no energy for much and since it’s just up the street, it seemed like a good choice.  We liked it. 

We both get a laugh out of the fortune cookies . . . I even occasionally eat mine!  Perhaps it is my tired brain, but today’s cookie seemed really quite wise . . .
