Tough Stuff

2/17/2009
We have been having a few tough days. Leila has had a terrible head cold the last few days. Luckily I think her fever broke last night so there is light at the end of the tunnel. And hopefully some sleep on the horizon. Kenson still has some jaundice and also has gotten Leila's cold. And this morning I got a call that my mom had an emergency surgery last night. She is doing fine but it still gave me that horrible pit-in-the-stomach feeling.


When days like this happen I always fall back on comfort foods. Today was no different and I made my grandma's famous-in-our-family pancakes. They are more like crepes. So if you make them be warned the batter is very thin/liquidy. Also the prefered method to eat them in our house is to spread with jam, roll up and eat with your fingers.

Grandma's Pancakes:

2 cups of milk
1 1/2 cups of flour
4 eggs
1/4 sugar
1 tsp salt

Blend. My grandma likes to put all of the ingredients in a blender. I mix it with my mixer. I dont have a blender. Using a blender makes sense though because of how liquidy the batter is it is handy to have the blender to pour the batter into the frying pan.

And even on Leila's toughest days she still has a smile for her momma. Besides a little bit of comfort food this is all I need to get me through the roughest of days.
