We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
In your pancake mix??? Pancakes??? Really? How bout eating it on its own merits without all the simple carbs? Pancakes make me sleepy and low-energy all day so I gave them up decades ago...maybe cranberries would be a nice side to scrambled eggs.
We have a recipe from a book my parents received as a wedding gift back in 1940. Still make our own sauce using that recipe, but noticed in the last few years it doesn't gel quite so well as used to. Could be a change in the cranberries.
