It's National Pancake Day

I woke up this morning to discover there is actually a day for pancakes. Who would have thunk ? Probably anyone but me,LOL. I thought every day was a day to celebrate and pancakes. That's all they have talked about on TV today.Since I have the television on while I paint guess what I've heard all morning ? Yep, pancakes,pancakes,pancakes.

I did some research and found a wonderful site for pancake lovers.
Want to learn more about pancakes, their history, some great tips for making pancakes and toppings then check this out :

Here's My favorite recipe for Pancakes :

Prep: 10 minutes, Stand: 10 minutes, Cook: 6 minutes per batch.
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup milk
1 large egg
2 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled

1. Whisk together first 5 ingredients in a large bowl. Combine buttermilk, milk, egg, and butter in a separate bowl; add to flour mixture, and whisk just until blended. Transfer to a large measuring cup, and let stand 10 minutes.

2. Pour 3 to 4 tablespoons of batter onto a hot, lightly greased griddle or nonstick pan. Cook until pancakes are covered with bubbles and edges turn brown. Turn and cook other side 2 minutes or until golden brown.

Makes about 10 pancakes

Oh,add a few drops of red food coloring for pink pancakes. Or serve them on your favorite pink plates. (I had to make this about pink )

Not sure where I found this recipe. I would love to give credit where it's due but I have so many recipe books and recipes I can't keep up with them all.

If all else fails bring out the Aunt Jemima mix.

Anyhooo,now I've made myself hungry. I think we will have pink pancakes for dinner. How about you ? Yum,yum.

Never ask "what next" ? and Friday Flea Market

Never ever ask what will go wrong next. If I thought Monday was bad I was in for a big surprise. Things just kept going downhill. The one good thing was that without my other computer I spent lot's of time painting.So lot's of new goodies to add to my website as soon as hubby get's the right programs installed and I figure out what he's done,LOL.

As most of you know I take care of a bedridden FIL. Well, yesterday we got to spend our afternoon at my favorite place, NOT, the emergency room.Yep,grandaddy has another UTI. He gets to stay at the hotel,oop's,hospital. Poor little guy. Please say a prayer for him.

I'm the lucky one.... I get to come home and play.

Needless to say no pic's again and no listings for Friday Flea Market.

I do apologize and promise I will be back to normal by next week.In the mean time check out my website :

I will be adding new things all week.
