Vacation Return: Dragged in at Midnight

Whew, vacation is over, now I can rest.

We spend summers in one state, and winters in another and while that all sounds nice and happy, there are unforeseen cogs that cobble the works,  and one of them is double the house cleaning.

It's a two-day drive and after 50 car trips we've learned to travel at night, and now that we mainly fly (two children gone, it seems cheaper--and was younger then,) we have clung to the tradition of leaving late and still flying in at midnight.

Another twisty side effect is that to leave the current place of abode winter/summarized with no food, means arriving to a pristine refrigerator, empty of food.  And while it's great to wake to no stench-from-the-fridge, there is also no f in the f.

So To My Point,  I know, long time coming...

It's great to know that G-F Waffles are one step away. I throw together my mix, dry milk, water and egg powder and eat delicious waffles with syrup and bottled applesauce for breakfast.

Now to restocking the fridge with something a bit more green and healthy.

GAAAAAgh.  The husband has been living all summer in the abode.  There will have to be a cleansing purge before I can purchase new comestibles.  Back to the drudge of the current residence.
For me, it's not really a vacation but a change of venue.

Pancake Mix
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tsp. xanthum gum (guar gum)
1 T. whole egg powder or egg replacer
1 T. buttermilk powder (opt.)
2 cups rice flour
1 cup sorghum flour
4 T. sugar
1/2 cup garfava bean, or buckwheat, or whatever flour (optional)

I six times this mix and keep in a tightly sealed container. We use this same mix for waffles.

A similar post was also written 3/20/10.  Does history repeat itself or what?

I'll hunt up the essay on what happens when you come home to a month-long dripping water pipe.
