Just so you know, when one door closes, another door opens. I can’t buy cross stitching stuff, I’ll find something else to buy! 🙂 Vince is really lucky that I don’t like to shop! 🙂
To me, “shopping” is when I walk through the stores, looking at everything and buy stuff I had no idea I needed but when someone tells you how wonderful something is and how much you need one, and I order it off Amazon, that isn’t really shopping . . that’s my story! Maybe it’s just the waste of time walking up and down the aisles, then standing in line to pay, then putting it all in the car, then bringing it all in and finding a place to put it – maybe that’s what I don’t like. I don’t know. Obviously, I don’t have a problem with ordering.
The other night I was watching Sheri’s flosstube #21 (Colorado Cross Stitch Sheri). Right around the 39 minute mark, she mentioned stroopwafels. I had never heard of them. In her “down below stuff”, she links to the little waffle maker and a recipe. I thought . . Addie and I would LOVE making these together so I ordered the waffle maker and it arrived today.
This is Sheri’s affiliate link to the waffle maker on Amazon.
It came with the little tool for making the waffle cones and the bowl maker.
Sheri posted a link to the recipe too. Here’s the recipe she used.
I told Vince this morning . . I’m smoking the salmon today and making PW’s Crash Hot Potatoes. I’ll make a salad and that’s all I’m doing today besides cross stitching. He said “fine”.
Then, this box arrived and he said “So much for cross stitching all day.” I’ll see how much stitching I get done. I may or may not make these today.
I could make them today and use them as waffles or cones but for the stroopwafels, it says you need to use a 4-1/2″ cookie cutter because you make them perfectly round, then cut them in half, put the filling in and then put the other half on top. I don’t have the 4-1/2 round cutter so I had to order that. I do have a 3-1/2 round cutter and I could cut two but that would be a lot of waste so I may just wait for the cookie cutter to arrive or I may make waffle bowls and have ice cream sundaes in our bowls. We’ll see.
