~ Abraham Lincoln's Birthday ~ Ham & Cheese Waffles ~

Good 30┬║ morning. Watch out, we're headed for a heat wave!

Actually we were "supposed to" get rain today, but now the great weather minds have changed and we "might" get it tonight.  Just as well, Nancy's Dave is off fishing. I saw him at Ace yesterday and he did say he was taking all his rain gear though!

Went to Grants Pass, dropped stuff at Brain's office, passed him on the road when I left heading to Staples for ink. Stopped at Ace for corn... you see:

..... my geese came back! I kept hearing their honking, thinking they were the geese that fly over all the time heading to my neighbor's pond. Finally I got up and looked and here they were on the barn roof. That is their first landing spot every year when they return. I ran out and put some cracked corn on the ground for them and will take more pictures. I always say hello to them and call them ... "Goosey Goose" and they respond by getting close to me at times and not being afraid. I can go out and put down the corn and they will walk towards me.
The male is slightly larger than the female.

After watching a couple of my afternoon shows I got out the

and was ready to mix up the buckwheat ingredients for the savory ham and cheese waffles. Well, darn. No buttermilk OR eggs. So off to the market Maggie and I go. Back inside our gate I stopped to take this picture, just for Trish....

Ok, so back to the waffles...
(Here is the link to the Waffle Week at Rachael Ray...
Everything mixed, ham chopped, cheese grated and mixed in. Baked in my shiny new waffle iron. Fried an egg. Topped a waffle and had dinner!
GOOD! GOOD! and GOOD! The left over waffles I'll put in zip bags and freeze and toast later. Had a couple this morning with coffee topped with some butter mashed up with organic Blue Agave sweetener (tastes a lot like honey)... Mmmmmmm mmmmm mmmmmm! She made waffles from cinnamon apple muffin mix yesterday. Looked heavenly. She's also going to experiment with making them with corn muffin mix and jalape├▒os. Sounds wonderful. In the savory waffles I made I used olive oil instead of butter she puts in hers.

Had some pretty cloud patterns yesterday afternoon....
