Chicken Ala King on Cornmeal Waffles

I have made (and enjoyed) Chicken Ala King without waffles, but I LOVE it on these waffles!

Chicken Ala King
  • 1/4 c. green pepper, minced
  • 3 tbsp. celery, diced
  • 1 teaspoon onion, minced
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 1 tbsp. flour
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 2 (3 ounce.) cans mushrooms
  • 2 (5 1/2 ounce.) cans chicken (or possibly 2 c.chicken, diced)
  • 1/4 c.pimentos


  1.  Cook  green pepper, celery and onions in butter till tender. Blend in flour; gradually add in soup; add in mushrooms and liquid. Cook till thick, stirring constantly. Add in chicken, pimentos and seasonings; heat thoroughly.
  2. Serve over toast points or possibly rice or possibly biscuits. Makes 4 to 6 servings.

Cornmeal Waffles


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups (6 oz.) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup club soda
  • 1/3 cup canola or vegetable oil


  1. Sift together first 5 ingredients in a large bowl. Stir in cheese. Combine eggs and next 3 ingredients; gently stir into dry ingredients just until blended.
  2. Spoon a heaping 1 cup batter evenly onto a preheated, lightly greased waffle iron. Cook 5 to 10 minutes or until crisp and done. Repeat with remaining batter.
  3. Transfer waffles to a baking sheet, and keep warm, uncovered, in the oven at 200° until ready to serve. Waffles can be frozen in zip-top freezer bags and reheated in oven or toaster oven.

Dreaming of Spring

Yesterday the weather here in North Alabama was pretty nice.  I went to town in "Ole Blue" (my hubbys rattletrap truck).  My husband hit a deer on the way to work and totaled his work car, so now he has to drive my car till we get another one.

I am thankful to have a way to go...but this truck is seriously redneck!  The only thing that's missing is the gun rack in the back window.  I wear skirts all the time & it is IMPOSSIBLE to get in that truck in a ladylike manner.  I have to lift my leg up thigh high & PULL myself in by the steering wheel!  I also can't roll down the drivers window because it gets stuck.  I remembered that after I was in the drive-thru line at Chick Filet and had to leave.

I was glad to get home!  Alaina had a friend over to help her with her Algebra 2 (greek to me!) & when my hubby got home we sat on the porch and chatted about our day.  I told him that I am looking forward to spring.  This morning I was drooling over all my outdoor Pinterest pins & wanted to share a few of my favs with y'all.  Some are things I actually want to do & some are just wishful thinking!

I love these DIY torch lamps from bottles!  I want to make some for my porch bt I think I am going to use mason jars or old coke bottles...won't that be CUTE??

I must REALLY love this because I didn't realize until today that I have pinned it three times!  I think I would spend way too much time in this spot!

This walkway is to die for!  I love the rustic natural look of it.

I would LOVE to watch movies like this!

Porch Envy

I adore sleeping porches...


The blue ceiling makes a great impact on this porch!  I need that iron chaise.

Hurry up Spring!!
