Celebrate National Pancake Day~

My children love pancakes. In my quest to make all things from my Pantry~ I started making my own Pancake Mix. I just thought National Pancake Day would be a great day to share this recipe. We love it! I make it in a big container and I post the recipe on an index card taped to the container. It saves money but also keeps my pantry stocked! Give it a try. Enjoy!

Homemade Pancake Mix

12 c. flour
4 c. dry powered milk
3/4 c. baking powder
3/4 c. sugar
2 T. salt

When you are ready to make pancakes~use the following recipe.
1 1/2 c. dry mix
1 c. water
1 egg, beaten
2 T. oil

* I write the recipe on the outside of my container. The dry mix can be stored in the pantry.
This makes wonderful pancakes and waffles.

So Long Winter~

This is what I see when I look out my window this morning. We have 9 inches of snow and it is now about 15 degrees~on a bright note the sun is shining. PLL

Today is the first day of Spring Home-school Classes. I teach our K4~K5 students and we are to do a Unit Study~on none other than Spring. Well I am confused with record low temps and snow everywhere you look~I surely think my young students will be confused. So in light of our record snow and cold temps at this late February date~I have decided to switch gears. Menopause seems to be making that a daily event for me lately! But that is for another post. No~today I get to be young again. We are going to have a~ "Farewell To Winter Celebration." We are making the cutest snowmen with great big mittens that say, "Goodbye Winter." We are going to play pass the ice~like hot potato. I have songs, finger plays and stories all about winter~leaving and coming back some other day! We are going to learn just where all our furry and slimy friends go when it snows and snows and snows!!!! We are going to sing Frosty and we are going to eat Sno-Ball Hostess cupcakes. ( my favorite) All just because we can. In saying~"goodbye" to Winter~ I am hoping and praying Winter will say~ "goodbye" to us!

I am going to make today a great day~I hope you will too! 8)
