Birds are awake..... sun is shining.. now just need this cold to go away... Sitting on the deck early this morning having my tea, watering my plants and thinking about what a lucky lady I am...Going to finish off some cleaning this morning then a couple of little work jobs and then off to Victoria in the Hotrod... nice day for a drive.
Sad that one of our travellers for our holiday next week can not join us but we have lots of years for other great car trips... Going to miss you Terry and Norma...

Graham Cracker Pancakes
Yield: ten five-inch diameter pancakes

1 c. all purpose flour 
1 generous c. finely crushed graham cracker crumbs (from 9 graham crackers)
1 T. baking powder
¼ c. brown sugar
a pinch of salt
½ t. freshly grated nutmeg
1 t. ground cinnamon
2 large eggs
1 ½ c. buttermilk
1 ¼ c. whole milk
¼ c. (½ stick) unsalted butter, melted
canola or other neutral oil for the griddle

  • In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder, brown sugar, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon.
  • In a small bowl, beat the eggs with a fork and stir in the buttermilk, milk, and melted butter.
  • Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients with a fork, mixing only until combined. There will be lumps in the batter. Do not overmix.
  • Heat a griddle or large frying pan over medium heat. When it is hot, drizzle in a little oil. When the oil is hot, pour in ½ c. batter per pancake.
  • Fry the pancakes until bubbles form across the top and the edges look dry.

This idea today is more for the man in the house.. Everything right now up here in Canada is about the Vancouver Canucks so I thought that a hockey themed craft might be a good idea.. No instructions but it does look quite simple to make...

Make sure you all get out today and enjoy the weather and your family and friends...
