With nothing more than a placemat, I made a fun breakfast tablescape for breakfast this morning. We have such a busy weekend that this was my only chance to give a nod to the Super Bowl.
Everyday dishes and flatware with plain white linen napkins made an easy table.
These place mats came from the Dollar Store last year, I think.
Besides melon and strawberries, I made football shaped pancakes. The recipe for the pancakes was handed out at a friend's father's wake. It was the dish he was famous for, so the family shared it at this special, special moment.
These flowers were left-overs from the dinner party I had last weekend. You can see it here.
Just family and giggles.
What a nice way to start the weekend.
Bill's Famous Hot Cakes
Sift into a large bowl:
1 c. flour
1 T. baking powder
1/4 t. salt
2 T. sugar
Separate 4 eggs and beat whites until firm.
Beat yolks with fork and add 2 T. vegetable oil
Add 1 c. milk to yolks and stir
Add liquid to dry ingredients and stir only until moistened. Mixture should be the consistency of thick buttermilk. If not, add a little flour.
Fold into egg whites and cook on hot griddle. Blueberries may be added if desired. For best results, spoon berries into hotcakes after batter has been poured onto griddle, buy before flipping.Enjoy with plenty of butter and real maple syrup.
What a lovely way to continue the legacy of a family favorite!
