Yummy Saturday night supper...

Brrr, it is chilly here this morning. The temperatures dipped into the mid 40's last night. Fortunately for us, we didn't have any frost, but I believe some folks south of us did. Since it is Monday, laundry is the chore of the day. I will be back in the garden as well. My tomato bed is almost ready for planting, and my plants are more than ready to go into the soil. I have managed to make chore assignments for everyone. It has been a work in progress over the past week. I will post them another day.

I have to tell you about a wonderful dish I made for Saturday night's dinner. I was a little pressed for time, and I had not taken the steak out of the freezer far enough in advance. It was still hard as a rock. So, I was flipping through my Amish cookbooks and in Cooking from Quilt Country by Marcia Adams I found a recipe called German Apple Pancakes. I looked at the ingredients and to my delight I had them all. It is sometimes called a puff pancake. To the best of my knowledge the book is out of print, so I have included a copy of the recipe here. Just click on it to make a bigger picture.

This is a pitcure before it was served. It looks great.

Needless to say, this was a big hit. My son wasn't even here for dinner. I would have to double the recipe and use my bigger pan if I made it for all of us.
