Recipe for success

Do you ever make a dinner that every single person eats every single bit of? Me neither- until last night. Breakfast for dinner is usually a hit here, but last night there wasn't one bite of anything left- even on Lydia's plate.

We had German Pancakes (aka hootenannies), canned pears, sausage patties and homemade Orange Julius. There was not a vegetable in sight, but we had lots of fruit to make up for it.

I thought I'd share the recipes if anyone needs an easy summer dinner- or brunch- idea.

German Pancakes
6 eggs
1 c flour
1 c milk
dash of salt
6 Tbsp butter/margarine
powdered sugar (optional)

Preheat oven to 425. Mix eggs, flour milk, and salt together in a blender or bowl and set aside. Put butter in 9x13 pan. Put into hot oven. When butter is hot & bubbly, pour in egg mixture. Bake about 18 minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired. (We like ours with syrup.)

Orange Julius
1 c milk
1 c water
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 c sugar
10 ice cubes
6 oz frozen orange juice concentrate
optional- banana

Combine all ingredients in blender for about 2 minutes. Yum!
