Menu Plan Monday ~ Sept. 21, 2015

Hubby and I enjoyed a busy, wonderful and rewarding weekend in our neck of the woods. Saturday, we attended the 'Walk Across America' in Las Vegas. The event was hosted by Christine S., a family friend and Chiari Malformation sufferer.

This year I felt well enough to participate in the walk with my husband. I talked with several sufferers, learned and discovered that we had much in common, as Spoonies. Here's hoping that 2015 will bring great news of a cure.

Saturday night, we attended Pigs For Kids Championship BBQ, this event benefit 3 children cancers charities. Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation, Cure for the Kids Foundation and Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation.

The food was amazing! At least that's what my husband said while enjoying ribs and baked beans. I was able to enjoy pulled pork with no sauce but I did have to medicate myself before, during and after so I didn't have a severe attack. It was truly worth it.

There was live music, games, ride, and vendors too. We really enjoyed out busy Saturday!

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 …
