save the words

Did you know that each year hundreds of words are dropped from the English language? Perfectly wonderful, useful words! If you're crazy about words, click on Savethewords and adopt one or two or bunches! Your only responsibility is to use your word in conversation and correspondence as frequently as possible to the best of your ability. I'm in! Here were a few of my faves:

amorevolous - affectionate, doting
aquabib - water drinker
gnathonize - to flatter
aporrhoea - B.O. aka body odor

and the winner...
foppotee - a simple minded person

Go ahead and adopt a few of your own!
You're such a smarty!

swappin manly stories

Sunday Waffles

1 3/4 c. flour
2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
2 T sugar
3 eggs
7 T vegetable oil
1 . vanilla
1 1/2 c. milk

Preheat the waffle iron. Sift the dry ingredients into a medium sized bowl. Separate the eggs, putting the egg whites in a smaller bowl. Beat the egg whites until stiff. Add the egg yolks, oil, vanilla and milk all at once to the dry ingredients. Beat until there are no lumps in the batter. Fold the egg whites into the batter using a spatula. 1/2 cup of batter makes a 9" waffle. Lots of tasty variations....chocolate chips, nuts, berries, etc...

Have a great Sunday!
