Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes and everything was good to go. Well, maybe with the exception of locating flour. We've had an HHH summer and I have not heated the oven too often, so my recollection of my flour quantity is a bit hazy. After staring into my empty flour canister, I usually just walk down the hall to my pantry and the needed ingredient is located. I always purchase an extra when on special.
Not on Friday. One makes due with what one has, so the King Arthur bag was opened. I learned that King Arthur Unbleached Flour makes some mighty tasty pancakes! I will be using this again. Could not even taste a difference. WooHoo!
So the day continued along on a very bright note! In the afternoon my other plan was to use my West Bend Slow Cooker. Chicken Florentine a la Slow Cooker would be bubbling along on my counter top. Once again, the pantry door was opened. No Healthy Request Cream of Mushroom Soup to be found! There always is a Plan B in my kitchen. Using 12 oz. of Light & Fat Free College Inn Chicken Broth along with 3 Tablespoons of All Purpose Flour as a substitute for the condensed soup, my West Bend bubbled along as planned. The Chicken Florentine tasted soo good!
***First the Flour was combined with about 4 oz. of the broth before adding in the remaining amount of broth.
You might be wondering just how 3 Tablespoons of all purpose flour suddenly appeared. Years ago I took a suggestion from my younger son: Fill a 2 Cup container with all purpose flour, so whenever a small amount of flour is needed, the heavier canister does not need to be taken down from the shelf in my cabinet. From the day he made that suggestion, I heeded it. I find that my sons have wonderful ideas very often!
I was 2 for 2 on Friday! Now that made my day! I also have two more tips to add to the "Thoughtful Tips" page located at the top of my blog. WooHoo!
