Menu Plan Monday ~ October 1, 2012

I decided to not attend the Blogalicious 2012 due to a pain flareup. Sometimes those things just can't be help.

Did you see Call the Midwife, on PBS, last night? I just loved it and look forward to watching a new episode next Sunday! Check out this article on the premiere.

The 1st episode is available on PBS. Thanks to Organizing Junkie for hosting Menu Plan Mondays!

Thanks for stopping by! (Sorry I'm so late in coming over...) We don't get much fall foliage here... but I sure appreciate the temps dipping into the low 60s in the evenings now.

When I'm short on time and still need to make dinner this is my go-to recipe. What's your go-to recipe?

Korean Beef with Brown Rice

Our family favorite desserts are cake and fry bread!

I first discovered the strawberry fridge cake on Pinterest, this summer. We love strawberries, cake and that's its kept in the fridge. I'll definitely be making it again! Source: via Rona on Pinterest strawberry fridge cake

Marcus and I first came across fry bread while living in Maine. There it's called fried dough. It's typically served at fairs.

Pancakes From Scratch - Betty Crocker Big Red Cookbook

I'm a huge fan of pancakes and love making them from scratch.  Here's the recipe that I've been using for years courtesy of Betty Crocker's Big Red Cookbook.

ps I don't add the sugar and ues 2% fat free milk.  I do let the recipe sit for few minutes to thicken.  And when including fruit I serve it at the table.  I don't like to mix it in. 

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

1 tablespoon granulated or packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

margarine, butter or shortening for the griddle or skillet.  I use margarine...we don't like the taste of shortening and butter can sometimes burn

Beat egg in medium bowl with hand beater or whisk until fluffy.  Beat in remaining ingredients except butter just until smooth.  For thinner pancakes, stir in additional 1 or 2 tablespoons of milk. 

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