This morning we took it easy. We were still relishing in Jeff's graduation glory! I made Dutch babies, the Fannie Farmer recipe.
3 eggs room temp
1/2 c. milk
1/2 c. all purpose flour
1/2 tea. salt
2 tbs. butter, melted
2 tbs. lemon juice
Preheat oven to 450. Butter a 12 in skillet or four small skillets (with oven proof handles) or pans (you can use small pie pans or cake pans). break the eggs into a mixing bowl and beat until thoroughly mixed. Ass the milk and blend well. Sift the flour and salt onto a square of wax paper. Lift the wax paper up by two corners and let the flour slowly drift into the eggs and milk, whisking steadily. (Or slowly sift the flour an salt directly into the egg mixture, while whisking to blend and smooth.) Add the melted butter and mix briskly so the batter is smooth. Pour the batter into the pan or pans and bake for 15 minutes. If you are baking small pancakes, then they will be done after 15 minutes. If you are making just one big pancake, reduce the heat to 350 and bake for another 10 minutes. Sprinkle the lemon juice over the pancake (or pancakes) and dust the top(s) with confectioners' sugar. Serve at once while hot and high and mighty.
This cookbook is a must have! Good ol' home cookin' recipes!
After breakfast, we continued to take it easy. Jeff played video games, I spun some, and cleaned a bit.
Then, I used the toilet (gasp!). I noticed the water level was low and there a bit of an issue with the flushing process. Hm, go figure. With the way things have been going, of course this is a problem again! Seems as though the first plumber trip to the house did not quite do the trick. The main line appears as though it is still clogged so, the toilet is out of commission again! Argh!
We will make the call to our local friendly plumber first thing tomorrow morning!
All in all, it was a good day (minus the continued toilet turmoil).
