With 8 inches of snow in 8 hours, we are thankful for good neighbors like Barry who blew out our driveway (much to the delight of all the neighbor kids) and Guy who has already shoveled our walk twice.
We declared a snow day today. So far we have 6 inches of snow in about 6 hours (which is a lot for our part of Indiana). A snow day means I can finally give my sourdough a whirl with pancakes. Here is the recipe I used, courtesy of Joy the Baker. They turned out great and made a TON.
Mix 1 cup of starter, 1.5 cups warm water, 2.5 cups flour (a mix of white and wheat is good) cover with foil and let stand overnight. I put mine in the oven with the light on; it’s the perfect temp.
The next morning:
Mix 1 egg, 2/3 cup milk, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1 teaspoon salt, 2 tablespoons brown sugar and 2 tablespoons vegetable oil. Whisk into the mixture from the night before, let stand for five minute and drop onto griddle. Try them served with warm maple syrup and fresh strawberries and blueberries.
Remember how hard it was to climb the hill when we were little? It’s so far, and the sled is so heavy! To me, this photo remind me of Christopher Robin.
