You know, I had about 6 tomato plants and I know I had ripe tomatoes because I saw them from my window... guess how many tomatoes I actually harvested and ate?Huh  ONE - ONE LONE CHERRY TOMATO!!!!  Either *THAT DOG* is eating them behind our backs, or the danged bushy tailed rodents that live in the maple tree squirrel condo just on the other side of fence are getting them!

They were a bit meh - could be because my potatoes were old... or the fact that WAFFLES (come on, say it with me, it's such a fun word) makes everything else pale by comparison.

I used this as the base of the potatoes - using dried rosemary, and adding some sauteed red onions because Jim wanted onions.


and this was the chicken recipe.


It made a lot of pan juices, which I thickened with cornstarch. 

If I did not have so many lemons, I would have skipped the potatoes and made a simple rice to go with the chicken and absorb the sauce.

Hmmmm -yes, waffles for dinner is a phenom idea!

I fell prey to a lemon sale - 1 bag of lemons was $4.98... but two bags is $5, so I ended up with about 20 lemons so my dinner was lemon garlic chicken and lemon rosemary potatoes.  That and the lemon cornmeal waffles means I have about a dozen lemons left...

I have been having a waffle craving for a couple of weeks now, and my coworkers and I are planning a brunch/breakfast potluck this weekend at work.  I offered to make WAFFLES!!!!!  I just love the word even (WAFFLES!!!!)

This is is my go-to, favourite waffle (WAFFLES!!!!!) recipe.  The cornmeal gives a nice crispness, and the lemon flavour is very light.  Excellent with berries, and syrup.  Can be easily adapted for savoury flavours too.

Lemon Cornmeal Waffles (!!!!)
Makes 12 or more

1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 cup fine cornmeal
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp finely grated lemon zest
2 large eggs, separated
1 1/4 cup milk - scant measure
4 tsp lemon juice
1/2 cup vegetable oil, or melted butter
extra oil/butter for waffle iron

In 2 cup measure, measure milk, and add lemon juice.  Stir well and set aside to sour for about 15 minutes.  This makes soured milk which makes a good replacement for buttermilk which is what the original recipe called for.

In separate large bowl, combine flour, sugar, cornmeal, baking powder, salt, lemon zest, and mix well.  Set aside.

In separate bowl, combine soured milk, oil, egg yolks.  Blend to combine.  Pour into flour mixture and mix gently to combine.  Do not over mix, some lumps are OK, like a pancake batter.  Set aside to rest.

Heat up waffle iron, oil/butter griddle if needed.

In separate clean and dry bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks form.  Gently fold into batter to lighten.

Pour some of batter into iron and cook until done, often when steam lessons, about 4 minutes.  I like mine crispy, so I let them cook to a deeper brown.

Place on heat proof plate and keep warm in oven on low temp until ready to serve.  Or freeze and reheat in oven for 15-20 minutes, then serve warm.

I actually made these for a breakfast potluck at work, so I will let them cool to room temp, then refrigerate and we will reheat them by toasting them in the toaster - a la Eggos.

more about my love of WAFFLES on my blog if anyone is interested, and a link to the original Anna Olson recipe, which included a wonderful recipe for strawberry rhubarb syrup too

Might sound stupid, but I need to know what (names) sealers I should use?  I want a semi-gloss, clear sealant for the oil based paint pens.  I take it I should use an oil-based sealer?  Which ones would you suggest?  Still learning! 

Where are you in the world?  I am not sure myself, since I usually use acrylics/water based products myself - my husband is the one that sometimes uses oil based things for some of his projects.  So I would get a small can of a product and do a test with some of your paint pens.  I would also go to a specialty store for paints/stains and ask their opinion - my husband does that when he is not sure at a Benjamin Moore store that he frequents because their staff is quite good with their product knowledge.

On saying that - he and I are both using MinWax for some of our small projects and they make two products that might suit your needs, though I have not tried them myself - they are in Canada, but I am not sure if they are elsewhere -

This is an oil sealer:

This looks to be a multi-surface water based sealer, and is listed as being able to cover over oil based stains, so it may work

Again, I would recommend getting a small amount of something and doing a test on a piece of scrap with your paint pens.

I love the tea themed happy mail - and so happy that Belladune and craftylittlemonkey joined in too.  I am loving the gallery - happy mail is being interpreted so differently and it's incredibly inspiring!

It's amazing what can be crammed into an envelope.

... getting addicted... this may have to reoccur... very... very... very... soon!
