Wool, Waffles & Waiting

Hello dear friends.  It's Monday night here and I thought I'd share a few thoughts with you.  Not long ago, I signed up for Little Woollie's Yarny Love Club.   Last Friday, I received my first box and it was amazing!  I will share more of what is included with a later post (it includes three lovely skeins of wool plus more).

It was packaged so nice with a personalized card included!

Awhile back my dear son-in-law told me about a recipe called Pizza Waffles.  I decided to make them the other night.  I made a simple pizza dough and after it had risen, rolled out thin circles of dough.  I placed Italian dry salami on one circle aong with a drizzle of pizza sauce and cheese.  I placed the second circle of dough on top, crimped the edges. Then, to make it look nicer, I took a saucepan lid and cut out the dough into a nicely shaped circle.  I placed this directly on the hot waffle iron and cooked it until it was lightly browned.  They turned out delicious!  Downside is that I had to clean my waffle iron :(

 Here's my Pizza Waffle...

I felt I was running all day today.  I don't know how many of you can work, take care of children, your home and your family.  Maybe I'm getting old...Anyway, today was a day full of errands; mainly business.  But, I did go to the eye doctor today to get my eyes examined.  All is well, thank goodness.  But, as I'm near sighted, my bifocals were driving me crazy; I have to take them off to read my phone or look closely at my needlework.  The current prescription was from a different doctor I saw two years ago as my insurance changed and my preferred doctor was not included.  I decided to see him anyway  and pay out of pocket.  I received a new prescription but he fitted me with one contact lense.  He told me to see how I like it.  My eyes have been dialated all day so I can't really tell.  I'm not sure it's going to work.  It it does, it would be great not to wear glasses.  I've give it a try and I'm waiting see what happens.  Supposedly, one eye adjusts for near sighted and the one with the lense adjusts for distance.  So, if there's typos in this post, you will know why, haha.

Friends are coming over for dinner here tomorrow so I will be busy in my kitchen.  I'm going to fix chicken with mushrooms, Palestinian rice (rice with meat, spices, and garnished with almonds), lamb kofte (seasoned meatballs), eggplant salad, and for dessert, fruit salad and almond paste cake.  Wednesday is suppose to be in the 80's and the family has decided to go to the beach.  It's really  not my cup of tea but I'll go.  I'm a mountains and tree person but they love the sand and the sun.  I've loved the clouds and rain this past couple of days.  I'll be sitting in my beach chair with my beach umbrella shading me from the sun. 

If all goes well, I'll be back on Friday to share some Easter creations I have finished.  Take care everyone!  And, thank you for visiting Lilly My Cat.

My best to you,



  1. Not sure if it will work with your waffle cooker, but after we have cooked on our grille,turn it off, we wet a couple sheets of kitchen paper, place on the hot plates and close. Eat your meal, when you go back most of the grease (in our case) is sucked into the paper towel, making it much easier to clean.

  2. I wonder if I might pop round for dinner on Wednesday? It sounds all so delicious. Pizza waffles would be a favourite in my house, I just know it. What a good idea. x

  3. I look forward to seeing more of your yarn! The pizza idea sounds good. xx

  4. Your dinner sounds wonderful! The pizza waffle looks good, too. I hope your contact works. I just got new glasses today! I can see clearly now and realize I need to do a better job of housecleaning! Lol! I have really slowed down energy-wise these last few years and marvel at all I used to do when I was younger. Hope you have a nice dinner party! Hugs xo Karen

  5. Pizza waffles - yum! I don't like to clean to waffle iron either. Sounds like you've been busy lately, but wow the dinner you had planned sounds magnificent!

  6. Ah wonderful goodies there, love waffles, brilliant work.
    I am your newest encourager fo your blog, hope you might pop over to mine also.
    Thanks so much for sharing, Shaz in Oz.x
