Bill spent yesterday morning with the kids and grandkids playing in the ocean!! He had a ball and was really worn out when he got back after lunch. Later that evening, we went back for one last visit.
When we got there, I asked the children to get together for a group picture. Well, they were not real excited about that idea. After three attempts, I called it quits and will share the best of the three photos ;o))
Bill, Steve and the 2 boys went to play miniature golf while Julie, the girls and I went for a golf cart ride. So nice to spend just a little more time together before they have to head back to Raleigh in the morning.
While we were there, Steve wanted Bill’s help with packing up a few of the harder things like the awning and the canopy. My job was to entertain the children so they wouldn’t get in the way :o)) Now, what better way to keep the children busy and happy then to give them CHOCOLATE!!!Even my oldest child, Julie, has a smile on her face!!
Of course, Grandpop had promised them ice cream once he got done with his chores if they behaved ;o)))Now there is a happy gang. We just love the time we get to spend together. We hope to have a lot more time in the near future to make a lot more memories!!
Now let’s talk pancakes!!
I am the pancake lover in this family. However, I never make them as I have never found a recipe that meets my requirements. I usually just get pancakes when we go out for breakfast and consider it a special treat!!
I really prefer to eat low-fat vegan. Now that means the pancakes would have to be whole grain with no added oil, eggs, or dairy. Try to find a pancake recipe that doesn’t taste like cardboard with those requirements!!!
Well, I have found it :o)))
Even Bill liked the ones I made for him without blueberries!!! His comment, “This recipe is a keeper!”
After I ate one plain and one blueberry while I was ‘testing’ the recipe, my final plate included three Blueberry Buckwheat Pancakes with Fresh Sweet Queen Anne Cherries.
Here is the recipe which I put into Mastercook format and then took a photo of it. So if you cannot read it, just click the photo to enlarge it.
