Sunday Social ~ May 4, 2014



Its the 100th Sunday Social!!!! Congratulations Neeley and Ashley, hosts of Sunday Social!

This Weeks Questions are:

1. Who do you call when you need to vent?

I don't! I pray and mediate.

2. Where do you go when you need alone time?

I love sitting on our balcony. It's so beautiful and relaxing!



3. What is your favorite alone time activity?

I love reading books, magazines! It's so relaxing for this gal.

4. What is something we should all stop and read right now?

I highly recommend "The Redhead Plays Her Hand", by Alice Clayton.

But, I don't want to you think that's what this book is all about. It's about Grace Sheridan, who's a fellow curvy gal and her gorgeous, younger boyfriend Jack Hamilton, their lives and friends in Hollywood.

This book is sexy, romantic, and funny! Matter of fact, it's one of the books of The Redhead series!

5. Who do you wish would read your blog that doesn’t already?

Mmm...I wish my husband would read it more often but when he does he always says something sweet about it!

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 …
