Dutch babies and space aliens

I recently subscribed to 3 magazines at a deal for $5 each.  The hope being that if I cooked just one new meal a month we could be trying some new things.  This is from the September issue of Southern Living.

This is what we had this morning. Not wanting to wake the family I did not make it in a blender but mixed it using an archaic kitchen item called a "fork".   I don't understand how this is supposed to be 4 servings as it was very, very thin after it deflated but it was a good size for our family and 3 of us really liked it. It will probably be something made on the weekends often.

Look at this funny little thing in the kitchen window this morning:

Ok, it's just a moth but it also does look like some tiny, fuzzy, space-alien bear creature waiting for the ship to return.  It's adorable. That dirt is on the outside, by the way ;)

Today: cleaning the house, maybe a walk, picking up our stuff from the fair tonight.


  1. This reminds me that I used to make a Dutch apple pancake when the kids were little, I wonder where that recipe went. It was good and easier than pancakes for four.
    That blue pot holder for the cast iron skillet - where did you get it?

    1. Apple pancakes are the best. I have a great recipe for then that I'll have to dig out.
      I was wondering about the iron holder the other day. I've had it for awhile and it *might* have come from TJ Maxx but I'm leaning more towards a cooking store at the outlet mall that sold a lot of Lodge stuff.
