Pancakes
Nowadays it's easy to whip this together from a mix. But sometimes it's nice to go back and do it from scratch. It gives you more control and you can tweak it to how your family likes it.

Notes
  1. Mom wrote, "½ recipe" on the top of the card. The writing is faded and the card shows signs of age, so this may have been what she used back when the family was still smaller. Since she and dad eventually had 4 kids, this recipe wouldn't have made enough. My guess is that she doubled or tripled it as the need arose.
