After reading Everything on a Waffle, by Polly Horvath, we both had the same thought–let’s test Primrose’s recipes. We chose four: shepherd’s pie, asparagus, pear soup and waffles of course, except they’re pancake shaped because we didn’t have a waffle iron. And in honor of The Girl on the Red Swing restaurant, we had to serve everything on a waffle. Except the soup. How did Miss Bowzer manage that?
Time to eat:
While we were a bit dubious about savory foods on a waffle, the combination (sans le soup) really worked in a quirky diner food way. The waffle pancakes were buttery like biscuits, and perfect for sopping up juices from the shepherd’s pie. Miss Bowzer’s recipe for asparagus could have used a dash of olive oil and salt. And the pear soup, to our surprise, was the standout dish. Cheese really does make everything better. Uncle Jack may disagree, but we’d give Girl on the Red Swing 3.5 stars!
