Buttermilk Pancakes and My Friends Weigh In

This weekend we made our traditional buttermilk pancakes. This has become a weekly MUST make option. Kate (9) wanted to make them herself and she did, for the most part... I couldn't stand to not participate in the getting the batter onto the griddle part of the process.
The recipe follows:
2c. all-purpose flour
2 T. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 c. buttermilk
1/3 c. milk
1/4 c. melted butter
2 eggs.
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Whisk together. Combine buttermilk, milk, eggs and melted butter in another. When you are ready to make the pancakes, add the wet to the dry, mix well, and make the pancakes.
What My Friends Feed Their Kids
I sent an email out to a bunch of friends asking them what they feed their kids. Here are some of the answers I got:


Chicken Tetrazini
Chicken Parmasean
Chicken Caccitore
Schnitzel (got to check that out)
Oven Fried Chicken
Beer Can Chicken
Baby Back Ribs
Lots of Flank Steak
A few macaroni and cheeses
A few Teriaki marinades
Meatloaf Muffins (hmmm)
Beef Brisket
And one really odd, but strangely appetizing sounding to me: Pork Chops stuffed with Red Onion Jam

Amazingly, not much pasta.
