I can honestly say that on my wedding day, I didn’t consider that this day would ever arrive. 25 years is an inconceivable amount of time. However, here it is. It has been an amazing, fun, loving, exhilarating , blessed 25 years. I would love to say it was without it’s trials and tribulations, but that isn’t life. Yet, despite them, I lover her more than I did the day we were married. I was very smitten that day, so that is saying a lot.
This morning I made Cream Cheese Pancakes. Always delicious!
2-lb bag self-rising flour
1/3 cup Sugar
3 large Eggs
5 cups of Milk, + extra if batter is too thick
1 8 oz package Cream Cheese, softened
3 tablespoons Butter, melted
2 teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract
In a large bowl cream sugar and cream cheese until light and foamy. Add eggs and incorporate. Add melted butter. Next, add 1/3 of the bag of flour and 2 cups of milk, mix thoroughly. Again, add 1/3 of the bag of flour and 2 cups of milk, mix thoroughly. Finally, add remaining flour and 1 cups of milk, mix thoroughly. At the end add 2 teaspoons Vanilla.
Pour 1/4 cup of batter on to a hot, lightly greased griddle. Cook the pancakes until tops are covered with bubbles and edges appear cooked; turn and cook the other side.
