Potato Waffles and Winners

Hi there everyone.........oh such beautiful weather!!!! I love it being lighter later too...wish daylight savings would always stay this way. Was reading today that changing the clocks forward and back is not good for ones health. It was quite interesting because it all has something to do with the hormones that wake you in the morning and what helps you to sleep at night....so when the times changes, the hormones get messed up...quite understandable. If I can find that article, I will place it here.
Lately I have been making potato waffles....oh yum. I bake up about 6 potatoes, naturally the first night I slice them in half and put melted butter, sour cream with chives on....mmmmm, so good. The left over potatoes are turned into waffles the next night.
I like extra crispy waffle potatoes....so a little extra butter on the waffle iron, some seasoning and press down. and "wah lah" yummy waffle potatoes. Then a little bit of sour cream and chives to top it off. Not sure how many calories these carry...one potato is 130 calories according to the bag...so maybe we are looking at 200 calories per potato??? 

I have also been doing grilled cheese sandwiches on my waffle iron. Gosh, if I had known my waffle iron was this versitale, it would not have been sitting in the cabinet all this time and just being used for waffles only. Doing eggs is another tasty dish too.
And the winners are.....tomorrow I will be sending this St. Patrick's Day card to 4 winners. Diana, Patty, Angela and Biz. Congratulations everyone and thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving comments. Your "blog friendship" is always appreciated. I love visiting your blogs everyday too!!

Well, I could have had an appointment with the dentist tomorrow morning to start the deep cleaning of my teeth....but I passed on it. I said I am a big chicken and wanted to wait on that and just get the tooth pulled first...she understood completely. Gosh, I hope they give me some laughing gas for that cleaning...for some reason it sounds painful.

Hope you are having a restful evening. After I get done here, I need to go do some dishes, they are piling up again. Have a good night and keep looking up. Cheers ~ Louise
