My Current Re-Do - The Kitchen

My current Re-do for the kitchen
Lots of cupboards and counter space actually makes this kitchen challenging for this very mobile family. Utilizing items that we have and some new purchases this is my current results.

Take note of our new member, Henretta, the Chicken.(purchased from My husband doesn't like her much (he doesn't like the way she stares at him) but I've always had a thing for folk art and chickens.


Lots of storage is a beautiful thing in a kitchen, bath or anywhere! I enjoy your blog.

1 large egg
1 cup all purpose or whole wheat flour
3/4 cup milk

1 tablespoon granulated or packed brown sugar

Heat griddle or skillet over medium heat or to 375 degrees.  Grease griddle with butter/margarine …
