Cottage Cheese Pancakes

I have many fond memories of my Grandma and Grandpa Mellema making these pancakes when I was growing up. Abigail wanted pancakes for breakfast so I decided to make a batch of these instead of the light and fluffy ones she usually eats. She devoured FOUR ... oh yeah! This is pretty amazing for my non-foody daughter. =)

Cottage Cheese Pancakes

1 cup cottage cheese
4 eggs
1/2 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup oil
1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Whirl at high speed 1 minute in blender.
Bake on lightly greased griddle.

God Bless,

DGD's Favorite Storage Containers

I love, love, love GLASS CANNING JARS and find they work so well in my pantry. I've purchased them all at thrift stores so I didn't spend a lot of money switching from plastic containers to glass jars.

My all-time favorite size is the 1/2 gallon canning jar. I can fit 2 deep in my upper cabinets so they don't waste any space. I store flour, sugar, rice, pasta, bread crumbs and oatmeal in this size jar.

Quart canning jars are the perfect size for chocolate chips, dried fruit, nuts, dried coconut, dry milk etc.

Half pint canning jars are the perfect size for cocoa, baking soda, wheat gluten, salt, etc.

Quilted Jelly jars are the perfect size for spices and it's an added bonus that they come with decorative labels.

God Bless,

I'm Back!

It is really nice being with family. =) Our trip to New York was terrific. Sarah is a wonderful hostess. Abigail played so well with her cousins. I got to baby-wear Mr. Jeremy to my hearts content.

Next week Abigail is going to VBS at a local church, so I will spend the morning blogging and knitting at a nearby library. I've got lots of stuff I want to share with you. I'm making some changes to my master meal plan. I've been thinking about a "Setting up a Simple Home" series for months and I'm ready to jump into it.

God Bless!

Teacher Gifts

Abigail's last day of pre-school is Thursday so this weekend I've kept my hands busy knitting Teacher Gifts. One for Mrs. Bradley and one for Mrs. Meers. They will be tucked in a gift bag along with some of my wonderfully frugal coupon shopping items. =)

God Bless,
