Wacky Wednesday...............

Above:  last nights supper...........Below:  tonights supper

I told you I'd get back to you all about the blueberry and white chocolate waffles......FA B U L O U S!!!!!
They are OUT OF THIS WORLD good!!!
I will be making these forever!  Not every day although it's very tempting.  You don't really taste the white chocolate chips distinctly but they definitely add something because these were THE BEST blueberry waffles EVER!  Thank you for sharing them Michael!  If you missed my blog yesterday just go to Inspired By Charm
and visit Michael and his great recipe!
This is my old "free" waffle makes great waffles but I overfilled it.....obviously! LOL!

Just an F.Y.I. .....when I got this it had a cloth cord (above) which was in good shape but I'm leary about cloth cords so I went to our local Ace Hardware Store (Johnson's in Ash Flat) and asked them if they had the materials so I could rewire the cord.   They said I didn't have to, I could just buy a new cord so I did!

Maybe I'm the only one on the planet that didn't know about this but in case I'm not I thought I would share this with you.  If you have an old waffle maker or other appliance or find one at a garage sale you can buy it even with a frayed cord knowing you can replace it at your friendly Ace Hardware store.   A lot of people sell them because of the cloth cord when there's nothing else wrong with them.

They have all different sizes and a much longer cord than the original. So, go down in your basement and drag up those old appliances instead of pitching them, get a new cord and you're all set!  Now, where's that old deep fryer my Mom used to have?
P.S.  I've also seen cool bracelets made with the old cloth cords!  Recycling at it's best!  Hope you had a wonderful Wednesday!


  1. That is good information to know about replacing cloth cords. It seems like they would be very dangerous. Your waffles look good. I bet that was a tough job to clean the waffle maker. -------Shannon

  2. Thanks for the tip about the cords! I'll keep that in mind for future purchases.

    Thanks for stopping by The Cozy Old Farmhouse and entering my giveaway.

  3. Oh Boy, those waffles look amazingly yummy. I've been craving breakfast for dinner for awhile now...
    Your cord story reminds me of my dad. When I was a kid he used to remove the cord from any broken appliance and save it...then use them to rewire other appliances that had frayed cords. Probably not the safest route to go!

  4. Oh my goodness, those look fantastic! Thanks for the tip about Ace too. Good to know. Now, guess what we're having for lunch!

  5. HI SAM,
    Those do look really good. butter and maple syrup, yummy.
    Looks like you have sa lot of outside things under control, well you know, looking good. You planted a lot of pretty things. Its so easy to keep getting more. I know right now that I have enough plants, but today when I'm out I have a feeling that another one might be coming home with me.
    Have a nice weekend, red white and blue.

  6. Dessert for breakfast~~you are my kind of gal ~~LOL!
    Those waffles look delish.

    I used to have an old square waffle maker with a fabric covered cord. I loved that thing... even though it weighed about a hundred pounds...hee, hee.
    We just don't make waffles very often, so I traded down, and got a much smaller waffle iron.

    Have a happy day.
    Smiles :)

  7. My youngest prefers waffles to pancakes but we don't have a waffle maker. I remember my mom making them when we were growing up. I like to eat oatmeal with blueberries or cereal for dinner. Yum! Happy weekend wishes to you, Tammy
