Neighborhood sale 2008

My purchases - really cute coffee mugs that remind me of my Aunt Bernice. They don't have a name on them but they are kind of cross between Holly Hobbie and Precious Moments.
More mugs - these are larger mugs with Normal Rockwell pictures, they even have a different picture on the back than on the front.
Pampered Chef ice shaver for my mother-in-law, Wysocki jig saw puzzle and a very cute juice pitcher with daisies. It is pretty small and would be perfect if frozen orange juice still came in 6 ounce cans.
Small blue and white dish,
the container with cardinals and a pine branch is a brand new Hallmark spice candle
the planter is holding a twig star
Nina's purchases - several Wilton items for cake decorating, a brand new but 20 year old picture bingo game, this was Nina's favorite game when she was a preschooler, Uno Stacker and a low fat cookbook.
She also got these cute little dessert dishes. They are very small and will hold about one nice scoop of ice cream. They were just 25 cents each.

Nina and John came over early this morning. We had pancakes and bacon for breakfast and Nina wanted to use this new recipe. They are pretty tasty and very fluffy. They don't call for sugar or oil but I did add a pinch of salt.

Fluffy Canadian Pancakes from

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 cup milk
3 egg yolks
3 egg whites
In a medium bowl, combine flour and baking powder. Stir in milk and egg yolk until smooth.
In a large glass or metal mixing bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold 1/3 of the whites into the batter, then quickly fold in remaining whites until no streaks remain.
Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Cook until pancakes are golden brown on both sides; serve hot.

After breakfast, we walked around our little neighborhood to about 20 different garage sales.
