Sunday Social

1. 3 favorite songs right now!

Well, that's too easy. "Outstanding" by The Gap Band, "Through The Fire" by Chaka Khan and "What You Won't Do For Love" by Bobby Caldwell.

2. 3 favorite movies that remind you of summer.

Something's Gotta Give, "Grease", and 'Dirty Dancing" remind me of summer! In "Something's Gotta Give" I have a huge crush on the house! Wouldn't you just love to spend a summer vacation in that house?

3. 3 favorite articles of clothing you own

I'm sure I'm not alone in this but I do love my yoga pants! Great for working out, taking a walk or just lounging around the house! During the summer, I love my khaki shorts! They go with every summer top and can be dressed up too!

4. 3 items on your wish list.

Fall means it's time to buy a couple of new fitted blazers and Eddie Bauer turtlenecks! I'll also be needed a pair of new tall black boots!

5. 3 books you would recommend to someone.

I recently finished reading "Booby Trap" by Sue Ann Jaffarian. I love her style of writing, including having the hero be a curvy gal. (like me)

"The Cupcake Queen" by Heather Hepler. Yes, I would consider this book a 'coming of age' story but even this grown up was entertained.

"Rules" by Cynthia Lord is about being different, acceptance and that nasty word, "normal". I loved this book so much that I highly recommend it to all ages!

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 …
