Sour Cream Waffles

Waffle witth fruitt salad.jpeg

Waffles are delicious to serve for breakfast but don’t forget about eating breakfast for lunch or dinner! Most of the ingredients will be in your pantry and refrigerator, so you can make them on the spur of the moment.  I added sour cream to this recipe, making these waffles light as well as a bit crunchy and a bit sweet. My 104-year-old mom loved them for dinner with maple syrup. Try with butter and fruit, some of your favorite jam or cinnamon and sugar.  Make a batch and freeze for future meals.

How can you not like a series with time slipping, ghosts and secret tunnels? Marion Eaton has written a mystery and about the mysterious on so many levels. The wonderful main character solves these mysteries which emerge from her work as a solicitor (lawyer) and from her psychic powers.  “It was almost dark, that soundless time when the veil between the worlds is thin and easily perforated and strange things can happen, especially on the Marsh.”
