On A Cold Rainy Fall Day..

Well, we were sitting here in the kitchen since it's rainy and cold and my husband just happened to look out our back door, and there in what we call the barn lot was a pretty good size buck.  Now mind you, he is about 100' away but we had the idea to grab the camera and try to get a picture anyway.

We get a lot of nature out the back door, but it's not very often a buck passes thru. For the past few years we have had a doe and her twins in the barn lot and in the garden area, so we know what this big boy is looking for!

He stayed in the lot long enough to get a few pictures. Not the easiest thing to do thru the back window and almost maxed out on the zoom, but the pictures didn't turn out too bad.

Amazing! Beautiful!

Super Simple Pancake Recipe

I thought I would share with you the pancake recipe my Mother gave me years ago. Since am too cheap to buy the mix from the grocery store I use this since is super easy and the results are fantastic pancakes!

1 C all purpose flour
1 T sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
1 C buttermilk*

*(to make your own buttermilk, add 1T vinegar to 1 Cup of milk and let it sit for a few minutes.)

Make sure you use buttermilk, you can either buy it or make you own. It makes the pancakes much lighter and fluffier!!

Mix all ingredients pour on hot griddle and there you have it. Home made pancakes.

I usually get approx. 12 - 3" pancakes.
