Menu Day 3

We eat a lot of eggs in the spring, summer, and fall.

In the winter I buy eggs.

In-expensive white ones from a large grocery store chain that I’m embarrassed to be purchasing because I have a.lot of chickens.

Which if you ask how many specifically?

That’s the number I will give you, a lot.

Because we’re never honest about our weaknesses.

So German pancakes are a regular occurrence at our house eight months out of the year.

We called them German pancakes growing up.

My aunt’s German friend called them hoot-e-nannies.

And most cook books refer to them, unglamorously, as puffed-oven pancakes.

So, who knows?

6 eggs

1 C milk

1 C flour

Mix and pour into a 9 x 13 pan that’s had 3T of butter melted in it.

Cook at 450 degrees for 12 – 15 minutes.

I used to half this and cook it in a 9 x 9 pan.

Now I double and a half it.

Where has the time gone?

Served with home canned grape juice and apple cinnamon syrup.

I made these oven baked creamy chicken taquitos one time to moderate success.

The next time I made them, probably a couple of years later, they were shamelessly inhaled.

I always try a recipe at least twice. It gives my family, i.e. kids, time to warm up to something new and it allows me to make adjustments the next time around.

Served here with Juanitas tortilla chips {never buy another brand again} and cilantro lime rice.

I used corn tortillas. And I never put in the onions. 

I pretty much hate raw onions.




Have a nice weekend,



  1. Raw onions in food are gross. You are welcome.

  2. I'll need to try these out! Yum!
