This is difficult to describe, and a eeipe is not always correct due o the difference in the thickening lower of different flours. A lib- ral amount of shortening is also an aid. Of course waffles are done at he table as eaten, pouring the batter from a big pitcher or j u g onto the iron. A good iron can seep ? with six eaters if a head start is allowed on the baidng.

If Santa came to your house and left a waffle iron, send him a note of gratitude for a handy piece of equipment, for now you can have cakes with tucks in them every day. It used to be Sunday mornings or Sunday nights when waffles appeared, but so many uses have been discovered for this iron, that it may produce a piece tie resistance or dessert for each day in the week. And if you're not up to mixing a batter, just lay plain slices of Scrambled Eggs bread between the hot irons. It makes the cutest checkerboard toast you ever saw. The same CMII be done with t h i n halves of rolls, and these arc very smart to go under creamed chicken or lima. You may even win a husband with your waffle iron, as our mothers were said to have done with their chafing dishes in the cay nineties.
