.......and it snowed today 2/12/12

LOVE is getting a little snow when it is sooo needed.
Only a dusting.....





but it put me in the mood for making something tasty for our cold, snowy, wintery morning on the Plains of West Texas.

Out came a cookbook
and, while the
Dunkin Donuts coffee perked, I decided on.........



 I didn't have PECANS on hand but I had WALNUTS...
I chopped them fine with my mom's olden, vintage CHOPPER
and added the MAPLE FLAVORING....
and got out the MAPLE SYRUP.
ALAS....
because I need to work with the recipe a bit more....I may have left something OUT...darn it...
I will give you this recipe later.

Don't get me wrong....the waffles were good..
...I've never met a waffle I didn't like.

They just didn't KNOCK MY SOX off and I like to bring really GOOD recipes to you.
So, I need to backtrack and see where I went wrong here.
I KNOW it isn't something wrong with the recipe..
I probably didn't add enuf salt.....or something....
I'll be checking it out.

IN THE MEANTIME....
it is STILL snowing...and WE LOVE IT....(2/12/12)
 ♥ ♥ ♥
The moisture is sooo needed out here on the plains.
We are appreciative of every flake that falls.
XOXOXO, bj

This snow is so pretty! I'm over a state from you and we didn't get it...how disappointing it was! Your waffles sounds really good...Didn't bother me...if I had gotten an invite I would have eaten them...all! lol. Hope you have a delightful evening! Luv ya!

Vee said...

So very unusual to see snow in your world. It really does look perfectly natural and at home there, though. If you'd like more, I'd like to turn this Nor'easter the weather frogs are talking about back around. (Weather frogs said it started down in the Gulf of Mexico...guess that's a bit east of you folks.)

sweet to see the snow! :)

You already show more snow than we've had in Philly all season! Love that you can capture the snow flakes in your pics:@)

Bunny Jean said...

Hi Bj!

Looks mighty cold there... but will that be enough to help with the drought?

If nothing else it gave you a good morning to make those yummy waffles!

I sure wish I could have coffee with you some morning....

Its been in the 20's in NC and hot coffee with cinnamon has been my guilty pleasure in the afternoons.

Happy Valentine's day to you and your sweetie.

Yup. Where I am we are still waiting. All we get is the gross wet stuff. I miss the nice white flakes.

Patti said...

I am in sunny Florida for a few weeks and I am laughing at you right now - how weird!...I left a few inches of snow in NY - don't miss it at all!

Madeline's Album said...

The snow looks so pretty. Glad you are getting some moisture finally. Waffles sound good on a cold snowy morning. Hope you had a blessed Valentine's Day. Madeline

Salmagundi said...

So glad you are getting snow - I'll do my best to send you more from Colorado!! The waffles looked good. Sally

Mid-Atlantic Martha said...

The snow looks really beautiful. We had some on Saturday. Big fluffy flakes....snowed for about 20 minutes and then stopped. My kind of snow.

Connie said...

Woman, do you do nothing but cook?!?! Hasn't anyone told you that's what Applebees, Olive Garden and Outback are for? They even bus and do the dishes, sugar. Sigh....pity you haven't heard. ;-)

A good day is when I don't HAVE to cook...at all!

PEA said...

Happy Valentine's Day dear BJ:-) I hope your day was a special one!!

How wonderful that you got some snow, it sure does look pretty, don't it! We still have a lot of snow here and will be around until the end of March or so.

I'm like you, when a recipe doesn't turn out right, I need to try it again and see what went wrong:-) xoxo

NanaDiana said...

We have not had much snow this winter at all but I hear they got 6" the day we got to FL. It is supposed to be 85ยบ here tomorrow. I am hoping for a breeze! xo Diana

Kathleen Grace said...

I am so glad you are enjoying the snow BJ! Happy Valentines Day!

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Look at all that pretty snow. I didn't know you get snow there. Just cloudy and cold here today, but we had some flurries last night while we slept. Happy Valentine's day!

Linda Chapman said...

DELICIOUS post!!

I have a chopper just likes yours! And mine is from MY mother!

Mecky said...

Your snow looks pretty.
We had snow on Sunday night/Monday morning. It was nice. It is now about gone since we were at 52 today according to my computer.

Blondie's Journal said...

Don't you love it when it snows...it's magical, like you are inside your own white cocoon! We have only had a tiny bit and although I don't like to drive in it, I miss it. Your pictures are so pretty! I hope your recipe gets a little tweaking...it looks so good!

XO,
Jane

Sarah said...

Perfect White Wednesday! We had a bit of sleet, but it didn't stick. Did have a bit more rain, and hopefully more is in the forecast. Hope you had a special Valentine's Day! ~ sarah

Indrani said...

Lovely captures of snow. Looks good.

Cat & Cricket said...

Beautiful pics of the snow...but I will admit, since I can no longer ski bc of back... I prefer my beach... but it has to be one of the prettiest things to see...

Ramblings of a Southern Girl ~ Rhonda G said...

The snow is pretty! That is something I rarely see! And the waffles sound tasty! Looking forward to you sharing the recipe with us, once you've tweaked it. They sure looked good!

Thanks so much for posting my give-away on your sidebar! That was so nice of you! I'll be drawing a winner at noon today! Good luck! :)

Debby said...

This isn't your first snow this season is it. YOu got quite a bit. It is so beautiful. It was snowy hear and slushy yesterday. I love it.
You have so much energy in that kitchen. I need a little of it to rub off on me.

The French Hutch said...

We haven't had our dusting this year and now it's a little late so probably won't. Love your snow photos. Those waffles look delicious and I'm sure they probably were. Would love one this morning with my coffee!
Enjoy the snow…….

Nancy said...

The snow is pretty but can get old quick.....We have not had any this year which is very unusual....

The waffles look yummy....Just thinking about them make me hungry.....

Have a great week...

Kaye said...

No snow here in FL but we do have birds and gators!

Now I'm hungry for waffles.

cherry said...

you're making me rethink supper...sounds wonderful.
I love seeing the snow...
hugs from Savannah, Cherry

LV said...

We just got a few flakes. Nothing like this and I am glad. I will be happy to see warmer days get here and stay. However, not like last summers.

Kathleen said...

I am so happy you got some snow! I hope you get some more to help with your drought.

Your waffles look good! I think of you everytime I make something with pecans.

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

After such a long hot dry summer it must be just wonderful look out and see all that lovely snow! Nothing like that has happened in Riverside since I've lived here which has been about 40 years. Freeze, yes, but no snow. Only in those high mountains. We can only see it but not touch it unless we brave traffic and crowds, etc. to get there.
Your waffles look just fine to me! Yummy, in fact! :)

It is so weird that you are getting snow in Tx. and it is going to be 62 here in Pa. on Thurs!!!! Beautiful pics and the waffles sure LOOK good! XO, Pinky
