I Really Do Love TJ Maxx!

I stopped by TJ Maxx last week, in search of a new handbag. Of course, I found some other finds and because the prices were so good I added them to my shopping cart!

I still stayed under my $100 budget. WooHoo!

Franco Sarto handbag $34.99 is a great addition to my fall wardrobe.

I was looking for some decorative pillows for our bed. This is what I bought.

2 decorative pillows $19.99 have found a new place on our bed.

lumbar pillow $9.99 the cover has a zip so it can be removed for cleaning.

small toss pillow $9.99~I love the fabric and quality. Having these extra pillows, definitely makes it easier for me to sit up in bed.

Are you a TJ Maxx fan?

T.J. Max is a cool store. We have a couple around here but I've not been to one lately since they are out of town and haven't been needing anything quite yet. I have been talking myself out of buying things lately since we just went on a trip to the coast and are saving to get our roof fixed next year. Hugs!

Thanks ladies,
It's great to see that I'm not the only TJ Maxx fan!
I so wish that TJMax was closer to me. Those pillows are beautiful and the purse I LOVE IT! Great deal too. Hugs, Bobbi Jo

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 …
