Simple Domestic Bliss

At times find simple joy while doing domestic chores.  It is more joyous for me to do chores when I am surrounded by beauty.  Of course, we all find beauty in different things.  One of my domestic pleasures is a beautiful pot holder.  One that shows some wear and has served its purpose is more beautiful to me than a new pot holder.

Since I have plenty of fresh eggs from my hen house,  I tried a new recipe from an Amish cookbook.  It was a simple recipe for a Dutch Pancake.  The ingredients were simple and they serve the pancake with lemon wedges and sprinkled with powdered sugar.  I used blood orange wedges instead.  The ingredients are 1/2 cup of milk, 1/2 cup of flour, 3 eggs beaten, salt---I usually skip this ingredient, I added 1/4 cup of sugar.  The recipe request the pan be buttered and the ingredients mixed in the pan.  When mixing the pancake in the cooking pan, it removes part of the butter off the bottom and allows the pancake to stick, so I suggest to mix the ingredients in a separate bowl and pour it into a buttered pan to cook. Cook about 25 minutes in a 400 degree oven or what ever works for you.  The eggs help the pancakes to rise.
