Probably a Dad and his two children playing the wii, right??? Wrong!!! There are actually two more adults playing with them. That's right Shane and Jen are playing with them, from their home in another state. Technology can be very cool sometimes! I'm not sure which games you can play like this. On this particular evening they were playing Mario Cart. We all just thought it was the coolest thing, and wanted to share. So if you want to play the wii with us sometime, let us know.
I also wanted to post our recipe for pumpkin pancakes. I posted this on facebook a very long time ago, and forgot to post here. This recipe got a lot of positive feedback. The original recipe came from Martha Stewart, but I made some changes. Enjoy!
Whisk 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder;
1/2 teaspoon each cinnamon, ground ginger, and salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg;
a pinch of ground cloves.
In a separate bowl, stir together 1 cup skim milk,
6 tablespoons canned pumpkin puree,
2 tablespoons melted butter,
and 1 egg; fold mixture into dry ingredients.
Melt some butter in a skillet over medium heat; pour in 1/4 cup batter for each pancake. Cook pancakes about 3 minutes per side; serve with butter and syrup.
