What's for Dinner: 3 Bean Chili with Fritos and Sour Cream
At the Sewing Machine: Nothing right now
On the Scrapbook Table: A layout from VBS
In my effort to get back to the way I know we should be eating, and away from post-partum survival cooking, I'm trying to eliminate some of the convenience foods I've allowed to creep in. This month I focused on complete pancake mix. I love that stuff! I use it in muffins and coffee cake, as well as pancakes and waffles. However, it's time for it to go! I ran a search and came up with this homemade mix. While more labor intensive than a just-add-water variety, there are no harmful chemicals or soy products. The pancakes were sooooo good! The kiddos gobbled them up and asked for more.
12 C Flour (part white, part whole wheat)
4 C Dry Milk
3/4 C Baking Powder
3/4 C Sugar
2 T Salt
To make the pancakes, mix together:
1 1/2 C Mix
1 C Water
2 T oil
This makes around 15 pancakes. We make a double batch - triple if Dad's home! I love to freeze leftover pancakes for a quick breakfast later on. Now if only I could find a tree to tap for Maple Syrup!
