I like Lynn's cleaning method: Get the kids out of the house, clean everything and end with chocolate and beer. That's my kind of cleaning!
Denise S., Tucson, ArizonaYour shotgun house (doors) had me laughing--ours is similar and the cottonwood fluff that drifts into every nook and cranny on windy, warm days of June is enough to drive me nuts.
BevMy father made pankajes every Sunday morning and his beer-inspired "light as air" cakes were the best. We all loved them and wolfed them down. We have our Sunday tradition at 9 or 9:40 am. Real maple syrup or a Mapeline concotion was our sweetener of choice.. Egg coffee and orange juice complemented our family pankajes. . My brother has continued this tradition, he added brown sugar and sour cream as toppings. A winning tradition continues. His daughter has started her own Sunday specials during uni and her first job.
JenretSunday Pancakes: How sad! In our family we would have eaten the pancakes even if it choked us. The gesture of a meal made with love (emulating a parent's tradition is indeed love) should be returned in kind, not in rejection. He might have then made pancakes the following week, and everyone could have anticipated it and saved their appetites.
