Griddlecakes

1 cup sifted all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 egg
1 cup milk
3 Tablespoons butter or margarine, melted

Sift flour with baking powder, salt, and sugar into medium bowl.

With rotary beater, beat egg. Add milk and butter; beat until well mixed.

Pour into dry ingredients; beat only until combined - batter will be lumpy.

Meanwhile, slowly heat griddle or heavy skillet. To test temperature, drop a little cold water onto hot griddle; water should roll off in drops.

Use about 1/4 cup batter for each griddlecake; cook until bubbles form on surface and edges become dry. Turn; cook 2 minutes longer, or until nicely browned on underside.

Makes 8 (4-inch) griddlecakes.

Kobe Doberman and Jazzy Beagle are excited to see what Santa brought!



There are plenty of nylabones for the dogs to each have their own, but Flash always waits till Kobe is finished chewing on hers, and takes it.

Merry Christmas to all!!!

This is the view from my front door. The sleet has turned to snow, and we're expecting five to nine inches by morning. It will be a white Christmas in northeast Oklahoma.

Merry Christmas!

An area retirement community hosted a lovely Christmas Open House today for the residents and their family and friends. I met Lillie a few years ago when she and I both were new to town.

My son is the artist of this winter scene; he did it when he was about eight years old. I keep it with my holiday decorations and tuck it in the branches of our Christmas tree each year. :)

Here are a couple of items found inside my Christmas cracker at last week's bunco party ~ a mini corkscrew and a joke. There was also a tissue paper crown.



The word 'refrigerator' is misspelled in the joke ~ yeah, I would notice that.

Using the 'fireworks' setting on my camera, I got the idea for this photo from Sujomi. :) So, that's a start to holiday decorating ~ the tree is set up.

This is a scene from the kitchen this morning as Kobe was eating her food. She has always eaten much slower than the Beagles, but now with the effects on her appetite from the all the heart meds she takes, she even eats slower. So the Beagles sit and wait in hopes of checking the bowl for left-over kibble.

When I returned home from doing errands this afternoon, there were police cars at the house next door. A young man was being handcuffed. After a few minutes of discussion, the handcuffs were taken off; he was instructed to get in the backseat of the police car, and the car drove away.
