Sunday Social

1. What is the most difficult thing you have been through?

That would be my stint at a mental institution. Yes, I was committed. I won't bore you with the details but it was an experience that truly saved my life! I never felt so close to my Heavenly Father.

2. What was your best birthday?

Oh my! I can't pick just one. They're actually all good to me!

3. What has been your favorite thing you’ve done in your own city?

My husband and I recently spent a weekend at Aliante Casino and Hotel. This was our honeymoon, after 18 years! And it was wonderful!

4. What is your idea of the perfect date night?

Doesn't matter what we do. Just time spent with my hubby!

5. Have you ever been to a blogging conference? If so which one(s)? If not, do you want to?

No, I haven't been a blogging conference but I enjoy reading the tweets and blog post of those who do!

Don't feel bad about about a delayed honeymoon. We have been married 3 years and haven't taken ours yet either.

I haven't battled a mental illness however I battle a physical one everyday.

Yes, living with a physical condition is overwhelming too.

Yes, mental illness is no joke! I've been living with since my teens.

Well, when you and your husband do take your honeymoon, I'm sure you'll definitely have a terrific time.
I hope you and your hubby had a lovely honeymoon <3

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 …
