  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 cup (4ozfloz/115ml) buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract , optional
  • 2 tablespoons (1oz/28g) butter melted , melted

Instructions

  • In a small bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt.
  • In a jug mix together the buttermilk, egg, vanilla extract (if using), and melted butter.
  • Add the wet ingredients into the dry and mix briefly with a fork until just combined. Take care not to overmix so you end up with fluffy, soft pancakes.
  • Heat a pan over medium/low heat for a few minutes
  • Scoop ½ the batter into the pan and allow to cook for roughly 3-4 minutes.
  • Once bubbles have formed on the top and it has browned underneath, flip it over to cook another 2-3 minutes on the other side. Repeat with the rest of the batter to give you 2 pancakes.
  • Enjoy hot straight from the pan with maple syrup, butter, and whatever else you like on your pancakes.

“12 Things Children Wish Their Parents Knew”

Dear Mom and Dad,

1. I need to know for sure that you love me.

When you tell me you love me, I feel secure. When you show me you love me, I grow confident.

I feel loved when you give me your attention. When I come home from school and I see you don’t answer the phone because you’re spending time with me, I feel special. I see I’m more important to you than other people and other things.

When you tell me, “I made your favorite cookies,” “I made the dinner you like,” “I saw this sweater in the store, and it’s your favorite color, so I bought it for you,” I know I’m loved and feel I’m worth loving. It gives me more confidence to face the world.

2. You are the foundation of my life.

I want to please you and make you proud. Please give me positive feedback often.

I feel good when I know you like what I’m doing.

3. I love it when you make time for us to spend together.

We can go out for pizza once a month, or you can cuddle with me in my bed for a few minutes each night (when appropriate). Even though I know you also have to take care of my brothers and sisters, there are so many ways you can make me feel special.

4. I need you to listen to me.

“Over the River and Through the Woods”

“To Grandmother’s House we go…”

 

“Just thinking…  with all of this fresh SNOW  coming down… so nice and softly… we may as well take  cover, in one of our favorite little hiding places…” 

 

“Like all good little ole bears…let’s find  for us…a very  cozy nice warm place and take cover… nothing last forever… and before you know it… it will be Spring, and the weather  will be just so inviting, we will  start looking for that nice place … where all of our friends can find us… and join in some nice friendly games…”

Tomorrow … will be here soon, so connect  NOW… with  all of our friends in “Sunset Park”… letting everyone know… that we will have a real big and most enjoyable  “PICNIC”  right here at this  nice long table,  and that is for all  of our extra special  friends… with plenty of good eats… everything that each of us likes the mostest and the  best!”

…and… a   little “NOTE”  to make and to remember is…

“Pass this very good word on… to all of our good “FRIENDS”… that we have a big heart… with lots of room in it, for all of  those, that we do not get to see and hear from as often as we did… but, we will…  never ever forget you… as all of our memories from way back and when… and then to our forever more and always … will be of you  and you… all our  friends!”

“Today the Big 9th…We Will Celebrate”

This  is one of the very first full “FAMILY”  Photos taken at the AIRPORT! 

   I’m,   the “Grandma” Ellen holding  “big sister, Alyssa”   and in front of me,   and in his “CUB Scout” outfit is “BIG BROTHER, Alan” –  left of me and in the center  is “Jill, new Mama”  – and next to  “Jill” is   “Daddy, Al” and holding our brand new  “baby, JAIME” – and  this is one of those Fun Days when DADDY and MOMMY will be taking off in  their plane!

And guess what??? 

 I will be baby sitting all three of the best of best GRAND-Children!  “And will we be having “FUN” like never before!”

“They do not call  “ME” their  “Fun Grandma” for nothing!”

“Just you watch and see – all the FUN things that we will be doing!”

 

“This is to those… two extra special people,  born on January 9th,  just looks like the  “9th”  was a very   “terrific day”   for us,  to  first receive “Al” and then  – so many years latter, our sweet baby “GRAND-DAUGHTER, “Alyssa”  – which makes for having more LOVE to share with all of the FAMILY!

Especially… when the “ninth of January”  comes around  each year and also every year … just as regular… as  very good clock work!

 

…and just for my most wonderful  Grand-daughter,  Alyssa….

“May the Almighty Yahweh continue to bless these two wonderful people,  with all of the extra special BLESSINGS – that,  they will need to do Your work – for You  – here on EARTH!”
