January 06

Hmmm, made Chicken Fried Steak today - turned out great! Used unbleached flour and whole wheat in half and half amounts. With cream gravy, sauted yellow and orange bell peppers, wow!

We're going to Brunswick tomorrow for the MLK weekend. Doing some cleanup, plus I'm gonna work on a threshhold for the dining room/kitchen doorway, probably Sunday. also some reading and just plain lazy stuff...

Scary story in the papers yesterday about some thugs using battering rams on peoples' front doors. Didn't hurt anybody, but scared the crap outta a lotsa folks! Prince George's county, tho, not Montgomery or Frederick.

Gonna have waffles Sunday. Recipe:



4 Ea Eggs
1 Tsp Sugar
2 cups Milk
1/2 Cup Melted Butter
2 Cups Flour
4 Tsp Baking Powder
1/4 Tsp Salt


Start waffle iron heating.

Separate eggs into two containers. Whip whites until stiff. Hold till later.

Add sugar to yolks and whisk until thick. Add milk and melted butter. Sift flour together with salt and baking powder and add to liquid ingredients to form a batter.

Take 1/3 of stiff egg whites and stir into batter. Fold remainder of whites into batter carefully.

Add batter to hot iron to make one waffle, being careful to avoid spilling over side. Cook for 6-7 minutes until golden brown.


Substitute 1 cup of whole wheat flour for 1 cup of flour.

Really good, been using this one for almost thirty years.
