the end of {summer} days

It is bittersweet when your child starts school at any age, especially when the summer has been "most epic" (in his own words). Land and I spent the day gathering supplies for the academic year. We made two stops - D.I. and Staples and the latter cost much more than the wardrobe and specialty items from the thrift store, in fact, I'm certain that lunch with his parents cost more than them all combined. But... spending hours with Land before he is off to conquer his sophomore year... priceless.

Puffy Pancake Recipe:
Heat Oven to 450 degrees F
Mix 3 eggs, 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt with electric mixer until light and fluffy.
Add two tablespoons melted butter.
Pour mixture into a quiche or pie plate that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
Bake 15 min. or until edges puff up and top is golden brown.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar and enjoy. Berries or apples are good as well.
