Pound Cake Blueberry Waffles

Wow! Something actually worked this week! The original recipe is very old, hailing from my 1948 Rumford Cook Book and with not much change to the original recipe, it was a big hit here at home and Kenny had a big helping for dessert last night (an early Happy Father’s Day gift ladies, hint hint)! I guess you could have these for breakfast but, as sweet as these waffles are and then topping them off with syrup, I think they’d be a little too out of the box for me! Of course you can add other ingredients to these such as chopped nuts, chocolate chips, or different extracts such as almond, lemon, etc. We have been picking our wild blueberries this week and when I saw these babies, I was sure that I was going to add them to the mix. Our blackberries were quite a disappointment this year as they bloomed beautifully and then produced very few berries that were not very tasty and some even bitter! Maybe next year will be better……….. Now on with the show!

Oh my! I got 4 more to eat!

Oh my! I got 4 more to eat! Maybe whipped cream next time?

“Holiday To-Go” at Piccadilly Restaurants

Holy Moly! I woke up this morning and realized that there is only 12 days till Christmas! My decorations are only half done..I haven’t even started Christmas shopping yet and I have no idea what to have for Christmas dinner! Normally I would fix a big ham dinner for me and hubby, but this year we are having company for the first time in years and I don’t think I will have the time nor the energy to put out a holiday feast. Luckily I found out about the Piccadilly Restaurants.
It’s amazing to think that Piccadilly Restaurants started in Baton Rouge, Louisiana in 1932 and 12 years later was taken over by T.H. Hamilton with the hopes of growing the business. I would say he has done that and more since there are now 60 restaurants and 80 food service locations around the southeast. Their menu has an awesome selection, everything from fried chicken to seafood plus all the trimmings including some of the best desserts you have ever eaten. If you are lucky enough to have a Piccadilly Restaurant near you, their dining experience is something you will never forget. Always relaxing, enjoyable and has that home-style-friendly family feeling about it.

So, it looks like I’ll be checking out the Piccadilly’s Holiday To-Go Feasts menu. You have your choice of ham or turkey with all the trimmings and each order will feed 10 to 14 guests for only $54.99. (Maybe I need one of each) You can even order à la carte for that special dessert you love or even if you need some extra ham, you know, just in case. Talk about saving time and energy, you can easily order on line, just make sure you order 36 hours in advance of the pickup date. The food is fully cooked, refrigerated and when your ready, just heat it up…gotta love it!

I would highly suggest that you like Piccadilly Restaurants on Facebook and follow @EatPiccadilly on Twitter so you never miss out on any of their special offers, like their Piccadilly Holiday gift card. For every $50.00 spent on gift cards now through December 31, 2013 they will give you a $10.00 savings card that you can use towards any Piccadilly purchase from January 1 to January 31,2014 at participating restaurants. Now that’s what I call a good deal!

So, If your like me and don’t have a lot of time, you need to hurry on down to your Piccadilly Restaurant or visit their site and knock one more item off Santa’s list. It’s such a nice feeling to know that you can spend more time with your family on Christmas day!
