Is he singing about me?

Last week, my Quay Lo shared a song with me. After listening to the song, I asked my Quay Lo, "Is he singing about me?" The lyrics cracked me up because I did everything he sang about and more! LOL! 



Lyrics of the song

I'm looking for my wallet and car keys
Well they can't have gone too far
Just as soon as I find my glasses, I'm sure I'll see just where they are
Supposed to meet someone for lunch today, but I can't remember where...
Or who it is that I am meeting? To my organizer somewhere
I might have left it on the counter, maybe outside in the car...
The last time I remember driving, was to that memory enhancement seminar...
What's that far off distant ringing? And that strangely familiar tone?
Must be the person I am meeting, calling me on my brand new cordless telephone...
I might have left it under the covers, maybe outside on the lawn...
and I've got just one more ring to go, before my answering machine kicks on...
Hi, this is Tom and your call means a lot to me, so leave a message at the tone...
and I'll do my best to try to remember to call you back when I get home
*Beep*
Tom, this is Gwendolin, and I'm trying not to cry...
but I've been waiting here for over an hour, I thought you loved me, this is goodbye...
and the voice sounds familiar, and the name it rings a bell...
Let's see now, where was I,
Oh well


Just a few days ago I ran out of eggs and wanted to go to the store to buy some so I could make waffles for lunch. I went out of the door grabbing the WRONG car key and noticed it only after I locked the front door. So, I went back into the house to put the wrong car key back on the key rack and grab the right one. Back out the door carefully locking the door behind me . Guess what?  I had TWO car keys in my hand but no door keys. I had locked myself out of the house! GEEZZH!! 

Here are the waffles that got me into so much trouble. (Yes, it is much easier to blame the waffles, they can handle it)

Airy and crispy waffles

Ingredients:
3-1/2 oz. (3/4 cup) bleached all-purpose flour
1 oz. (1/4 cup) cornstarch
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
3/4 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup milk
6 Tbs. vegetable oil
1 large egg, separated
1 Tbs. sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

Method:
Heat the oven to 200°F and heat the waffle iron. Mix the flour, cornstarch, salt, baking powder, and baking soda in a medium bowl. Measure the buttermilk, milk, and vegetable oil in a Pyrex measuring cup; mix in the egg yolk and set aside.

In another bowl, beat the egg white almost to soft peaks. Sprinkle in the sugar and continue to beat until the peaks are firm and glossy. Beat in the vanilla.

Pour the buttermilk mixture into the dry ingredients and whisk until just mixed. Drop the whipped egg white onto the batter in dollops and fold in with a spatula until just incorporated.

Pour the batter onto the hot waffle iron (mine takes about 2/3 cup) and cook until the waffle is crisp and nutty brown (follow the manufacturer's instructions for timing at first and then adjust to your liking). Set the waffle directly on the oven rack to keep it warm and crisp. Repeat with the remaining batter, holding the waffles in the oven (don't stack them). When all the waffles are cooked, serve immediately. 


Note: I served my waffles with eggs, bacon, butter and maple syrup. It is a very rare treat given its poor nutrition profile.

  1. I'm about to apply for membership at the Tom Rush/Lucy club .... soon, very soon. Possibly over-qualified.
    The heck with the nutrition .... I love this treat and it doesn't do it for me without the bacon. I figured being happy makes one healthy and this definitely will make me real happy! Oh yes!

    I must say, Veronica your Waffles look lovely. I have a chicken roasting but I may just use the leftovers for Chicken and Waffles tomorrow. It seems to be a popular dish here in Pennsylvania!

  18. Well, yours is fine! There was a time when both me and hubby locked ourselves from our bedroom. I assumed he got the key, and he thought I brought mine out but we didn't. Ended up he needed to climb through the balcony and sneaked in from there! So from that day onwards, we will ask each other on room keys. Never take things for granted, especially keys!!!

    1. What do you mean Lucy is back in action? She is in action all the time, Quay Po just don't let her steal her limelight so she tries hard not to tell her story too often unless she can't help it. Otherwise this blog title will have change to "Aunty Lucy Cooks". LOL!
