WHAT TO MAKE FOR DINNER?

So do you ever find yourself wondering what the heck you are going to make for dinner at right around 5pm? Well, we sure do around here. So tonight I found this recipe online. It was easy, fast, I had everything on hand, and everyone loved it! (Sorry there isn't a picture-the kids ate them all too fast!)


OATMEAL PANCAKES


2 cups milk
1 and 1/4 cup uncooked oatmeal
1 cup flour
2 and 1/2 t. baking powder
1 t salt
2 T sugar
3/4 - 1 cup milk
2 eggs, well beaten
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1. Combine the 1st 2 ingredients (the Oats and milk) and let stand over night in the fridge. Or you can prepare the oatmeal and milk the same day you make the pancakes: Pour the milk over the oatmeal and microwave and just bring it to a boil and let cool. (That is what I did.)
2. Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar
3. Stir eggs and the 1 cup of milk into oat mixture.
4. Add the sifted dry ingredients.
5. Stir in the oil, egg, milk.
6. Allow mixture to rest for approximately a few minutes while the griddle (lightly greased) is heating up.
7. I use a half cup measure to pour batter onto the griddle.
Cook till golden brown on each side. (I did not make them that big-though Marcus will eat a dozen pancakes in one sitting-some of the other kids will not. I made them small enough that 8 would fit on my standard size griddle:)

  1. That is a long way from the normal bread and water.
