First wife, only wife of 50 plus years. How she put up with me I don’t know.
3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1 Tbs. sugar
4 eggs beaten until foamy
3 Tbs. unsalted butter
Confectioners sugar & lemon slices for garnish
(We some times use pancake syrup)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place a 9-inch oven proof skillet in oven to heat.
Mix flour, salt, milk and granulated sugar in a bowl. Whisk in eggs. Place butter in skillet swirling around to coat the entire skillet. Pour batter into skillet, put skillet into oven and bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until baby is pulled away, browned, and puffed.[:D]
Serve with either syrup or confectioners sugar.
I don’t know where this recipe came from have had it for years.[:D]
If it’s available in your area, try Sweet Sue Chicken & Dumplings. Closest thing I’ve found to my grandmother’s.
Ok, I’ll bite. What’s a Dutch Baby?
And, uh……………FIRST wife?
Since I retired the second time My everyday breakfast is Bob’s Red Mill old fashioned Steel Cut Oats, with 1 slice dry 9 grain bread toast. Boaring isn’t it.[:D][:D][:D] Every so often I make the first wife a Dutch Baby.[:)]
Why it that we get on these "kicks"? Some wierd message our brain sends to the body? My kicks are recurring—some weeks it’s sweet potato-every night. Blueberry yogurt(Dannon no-fat) for months now.Chicken salad all last summer. I’ve had years of banana every morning. My husband is going on over 25 years of oatmeal with peaches every a.m.The record in my family goes to my mom who has been eating Ritz crackers with cheese (2)and Branschwagger (2) for over 45 years.
I go through phases. Right now its Maple and Brown Sugar Mini Wheats at breakfast. I buy two boxes at a time so I don’t run out. I used to have to have a Qdoba burrito once a week, but I got sick of them about the same time I moved to where there weren’t any. Not a bad trick…
TACOS! Atleast a couple times a week… Not the fast food variety either! Always curious if my favorite restraunt will serve me fresh corn shells or stale ones (stale in my book is over a day old, and yes, you can taste the difference)… Other than that, my daily menu is too varied to be considered somewhat consistant! Well, guess I do eat biscuts and gravey atleast once every 10 days if that counts….
retired & glad
Boy! Am I embarassed![V] In starting this thread I mentioned my salmon/ricotta cheese spread; well that’s the wrong cheese. I just made up a new batch. I use Neufchatel cheese not Ricotta. Please forgive my "foxy paw". I guess that’s just another sign of my reaching "advanced age", whatever that is.
Is it Italian, Tiki? I work with a man from Saudi Arabia who once boasted, "I am an Arab. We eat BREAD with bread!"
Bread—its my my addiction and a true passion i eat different kinds all the time–switch brands—plain fancy–i will more then likely continue to look like Santa Clause with out the pillows because of it but i love it and eat it in one form or another every day. Italian ya know!
I forgot that one! Ice cream about 5 times a week, usually after her evening All Bran.
Don’t be impressed, feel sorry for the girl. I guess she eats to live and I live to eat. She likes to go Roadfooding w/ me but all she eats is the All-Bran and salads. I’ll still keep her though.
retired & glad
Wow! All Bran everyday for 30 years. I’m impressed! For me to eat anything that many days running it would have to be a big wedge of Rhubarb pie topped with a gob of vanilla ice cream. Uummm!![:p][:p]
I think I could eat hamburger, steak, and tomatoes every day of my life and not get tired of them. Ketchup on the hamburger, so it’s pretty much just a beef and tomato thing.
Does Miller Lite count?
