This weekend was a favorite.
On Friday we enjoyed 70° with bike riding and sun kissed noses.....but it quickly turned.
The winds blew and blew and blew until they blew us back to winter, and heavy wet snow.
It snowed. And snowed.
All day--it was humorous, really--didn't it know it's spring?
But we spent our time by the fire coloring, playing with legos, and listening to our church leaders speak for our General Conference.
It was perfect.
We had our favorite breakfast....which I think most people call German Pancakes (are these german pancakes?) but they are called Hootenannies around here, because that is waaay more fun to say!
They are easy and quick to make, and disappear just as fast.
(I can't help but feel that word needs an exclamation point)
this recipe feeds my family of 4
1 1/2 cup flour (I used whole wheat pastry flour)
1 1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp salt
Add ingredients to blender and let-er-rip, until well blended.
In an oven pre-heated to 425°, melt 2TBS butter in a 9x13 pan
When butter covers pan, add mixture and bake for 20 minutes.
Your hootenannies! will rise up and reach for the top of the oven....so put them on the bottom rack.
You can serve them with anything you like really--they are fantastic with just maple syrup.
We love them with berries and homemade whipped cream
(whipping cream + a bit of powdered sugar + a few drops of orange extract + beaters = whip cream)
