Friday Finishes

Chicken and waffles from May's Counter, Tuscon, Arizona.
And it was always like that in Coal Harbour. Some people got old and some died. I left parts of myself some places and found others unexpectedly. New people appeared on the scene and others disappeared before I had a chance to say goodbye. All kinds of ordinary people gave their whole hearts to things you wouldn't think you could give your heart to. I made discoveries like the reason for Miss Honeycut's anecdotes, and other things, like the whereabouts of my sweaters, remained a mystery forever. And Coal Harbour never became a big resort or swank tourist spot or anything, but I didn't care because I knew that as long as you lived there you could get anything you wanted. And it always came on a waffle. (Recipe to follow.) 

I adore Polly Horvath's Everything on Waffle. Such a delectable choice for reading aloud and especially for a budding gourmand- if you think spaghetti, roast beef, ice cream, anchovies, or cotton candy on a waffle are gourmet delights. I've never had chicken and waffles but let me tell you, vanilla ice cream and hot fudge on a waffle is scrumtious.  Pair this with Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory , fire up the waffle maker this weekend and have a literary feast. I think Miss Bowzer and Willy Wonka would get along swell together.


  1. Two of my very favorite books! Thanks Miss Kitty for bringing them to the attention of even more potential fans. How about chocolate waffles---an homage to both books! Terry

  2. Hummingbird restaurant in Fairfax advertises fried chicken & waffles frequently on their specials board. Like Coal Harbour, you can get anything you want if you live in Fairfax!
