KA’s Simply Perfect Pancakes

I bought this powder at Amazon a while back, forgot about it, then ran across it again yesterday.  I wanted to try the King Arthur recipe I looked at and it turned out some very good pancakes, as seen in the last Pr0n post.


Musta Just Numbed Him

This red bellied woodpecker hit the glass in the kitchen door with a sharp thump and fell to the porch, insensible.  Mrs J walked it out to the stump and set it down, breathing but limp.  After a few minutes it revived enough to fly away.
The title is from a comment that I still remember after nearly 50 years. An old pipefitter was describing a quail hunt, he had downed a bird but when he went to retrieve it the quail flew up and away. “Musta just numbed ‘im.”

Quick and Easy Skillet Buffalo Chicken

I really like to whip up quick flavorful dinners.  Buffalo chicken is a favorite and I’m always experimenting with making it better.  This time I tossed the chicken in seasoned potato starch and thought it was the ingredient that had been missing. It makes the chicken pieces crisp up nicely and added a depth of flavor beyond the sauce.

It is great served over rice, salad, mashed or baked potatoes, drizzled with bleu cheese dressing and a side of celery.  All the flavor of wings without the prep time or mess.
