Another day which follows close upon St. Joseph's feast is a day set aside to honor our Lady. The picture of the Annunciation must appeal especially to our children because we find the Angel Gabriel and Mary appearing on the blackboard, on the book covers, and one year they even decorated our new plain wallpaper. What does one say and do in the face of such artistic efforts? Don't ask me because I have nothing to say for publication. It does help mother to let off steam if she beats up a traditional batter of waffles — for Annunciation Day is Vaffeldagen in Sweden. We may not be able to bake them in the pretty little heart shaped irons which the Swedish ladies use, but ours are good, too.

DIRECTIONS

Beat egg yolks. Add melted butter and cream alternately with sifted dry ingredients. Fold in stiffly beaten egg whites. Bake on hot waffle iron until well browned.
