GLuten Free Flapjacks just like Daddy use to make.

I've been really sick with the crud for several days now and have not done much of anything but I am feeling much better. I actually cooked a meal yesterday, not a gourmet meal by any means but it was substantial food that Steve and I had been missing. When I am sick I want one thing, and don't ask me why, and that is bread. Before going gluten-free I would make myself one piece of plain toast, but since going gluten-free toast doesn't appeal to me anymore.

Monday after going to the Doctor I ate a few bites of a sandwich before taking my medicine but that's all I could eat. Monday night I knew that Steve would take care of himself but I needed something that I could eat before taking my night time medicine. I was thinking back about my childhood and the things that I ate back then and the thought came to me flapjacks.

The Wikipedia encyclopedia says flapjack is
Another name for a thick pancake, particularly in United States and Canada

Flapjacks is what my Dad use to make sometimes for my brother and me for breakfast. So I thought why not, there has to be a way to make gluten-free flapjacks. I took my Pamela's Baking & Pancake Mix and added some milk but I left it thick and fried it in a tablespoon of oil. It was sooo good, just like my Dad use to make.

I drizzled them with honey and ate some of my Mississippi State cheese with them. Ooohhhh they were good, even to a sick person. So maybe now I'll just have flapjacks when I have the blahs.

What's going on new in the Good household? Let me give you a hint....

Sorry that's all I can say at this time, but I will assure you there is more to come!
