Rose of Sharon and a Recipe

Hello Everyone! :-)

This is a picture of our little rose of sharon that we planted last year. It hasn't yet bloomed this year, but last year it had such a pretty blossom! It was so nice!

Well, here at our house we like to have pancakes fairly often.....just plain or topped with peanut butter or blueberries, raspberries and sometimes pecans. They are quite good! :-) Here's the recipe.


2 c. flour
4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2 T. sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 c. milk
1/3 c. melted fat or oil

Mix flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in a large bowl; set aside. Beat egg and add milk. Add fat or oil. Add to flour mixture and stir just until mixed, leaving batter lumpy. Cook pancakes on greased and heated fry pan until covered with bubbles. Turn pancakes and brown the other side. Makes 12 medium-size pancakes.

Alterations: We like to use 1 1/2 cups of white flour and 1/2 cup cups of whole wheat flour. Also, if the batter is a little bit too thick, just add a few tablespoons of milk. :-)

Note: This recipe also makes great waffles!

Our garden has been doing pretty well! It shouldn't be too long until our squash and bush beans (or green beans) will be ready for harvest. :-) We also have some wild flowers that are coming up. The baby's breath has bloomed along with another kind of flower...I'm not sure what kind it is. They are really pretty! :-)

Looking to Jesus,

"How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked,
Nor stand in the path of sinners,
Nor sit in the seat of scoffers!
But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water,
Which yields its fruit in its season
And its leaf does not wither;
And in whatever he does, he prospers."
Psalm 1:1-3
