Planning and Pancakes

January 19th, 2014 at 03:44 am

Another weekend has come and it means I had to plan meals and then plan the grocery lists. Thursdays around here before we hit the grocery on Friday are usually clean out the fridge type meals. Last Thursday I used some leftover sausage patties, eggs, and thought I would change things up and make pancakes. I tweaked a recipe I found. This supposedly makes 8 servings so I cut it in half, but it was a hit with DH.

Old fashioned pancakes
1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon of sugar
1 1/4 cups of buttermilk (made my own with milk ans vinegar)
1 egg
Cooking oil

Mix ingredients except cooking oil. Put oil in heated skilled and drop pancake mixture by desired size. I use a measuring cup and pour it in ...less than 1/4 of a cup for each, but go with what you want. Brown on both sides. I served with syrup and fruit as well as scrambled eggs and leftover sausage.

DH was a happy boy. Plus I used many of the items we had.

Someone on Friday asked me what we had for supper, I told them and they said it sounded good. The next comment was how did I know what we would have. I told them simply...planning.

I know from reading many blogs that thre is a lot of planning going on in other homes so I know I am not alone.

    Good on you for planning your meals. I too think your Friday's dinner sounded good. Better yet it was fast, uncomplicated, used up items at hand and DH was happy. I appreciate the menus posted on SA, good ideas that help us all with planning

    I agree, a little planning goes far! At my house, no planning means the eating-out sirens start to call Smile

    We were suppose to have pancakes for dinner on Friday, but I'm afraid I succumbed to Pizza Hut's marketing. We will be having pancakes tonight. You recipe looks like the one I use from Better Homes and Gardens cookbook, but it calls for milk instead of buttermilk.
