Snapshot #1145: Power Pancakes

February 28, 2015.  Camas, Washington.  Our new Saturday tradition, Power Pancakes.  Inspired by Nonnie and her Park City Peacecakes and my mother's cherished ground-wheat pancakes, here is my recipe:

Power Pancakes:
1-1/2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour (I grind the wheat in my KitchenAid Grain Mill Attachment)
1/2 Cup Oat Flour (I grind rolled oats in my KitchenAid Grain Mill Attachment)
1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
1 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
2 Eggs
2 Cups minus 2 Tablespoons Milk
2 Tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar
1/4 Cup Melted Coconut Oil

1/4 - 1/2 Cup White or Whole Wheat Flour as desired, for thickening

Yum!  Yum!  I've started making a double batch and refrigerate the leftovers for weekday mornings.

Snapshot #1144: Seaside

February 21, 2015.  Seaside, Oregon.  Last year's Keri & Dave Wood family vacation to the Russian River was such a success that we thought we'd try another this year.  This time we headed to Seaside, just a two-hour drive from Portland.  The weekend went by way too fast, but the escape was heavenly.

Snapshot #1143: 3 Year Dr. Appointment

February 18, 2015.  Vancouver, Washington.  With all the commotion of the last six months, Hazel didn't get her three-year well check with her doctor until today.   She is strong and healthy and in the 75% on the charts for height and weight.

Snapshot #1142: If Planted, It Will Grow

February 14, 2015.  Camas, Washington.  I've had my mind on fruit trees since we bought our house.  Today we bought and planted two apple trees; Lodi (for applesauce) and a grafted tree with Honeycrisp, Granny Smith & Fuji (for eating).  This makes me giddy.

Snapshot #1140: Jello Playdough

February 10, 2015.  Camas, Washington.  I found this recipe for Playdough on Pinterest.  It looked interesting enough to try out.  So good!  I greatly appreciate that it doesn't leave a salty film on everything it touches.

Snapshot #1139: Pre-Writing

February 4, 2015.  Camas, Washington.  Around here it seems like all the kids Hazel's age are in pre-school.  Because she's also starting to show an interest in letters, I got her a little workbook that's supposed to start her writing.

February 3, 2015.  Vancouver, Washington.  Just a few weeks after we moved to Washington I signed Hazel up for dance classes; it's our one weekly commitment thus far.
