My Pancake Problem

I don't know if you have this problem or not, but every time I make pancakes I overshoot a little.  Inevitably I make enough batter for 5-10 too many pancakes.  They never do well in the refrigerator for reheating...they just get soggy.  What's a frugal girl to do?

My friend, Christine suggested this solution.  Freeze any leftover pancakes and reheat them as needed during the week in the toaster.  I'm happy to say, after a few surplus freezes, we had plenty for a weekday fast breakfast.  We tried it this morning and the pancakes were crisp on the edges and tasty.  It was a great tip for a fast breakfast that even the kids can make.

Hello All...

After a very long bout of morning sickness and surgery recovery for my husband, I'm feeling a little better and am planning on posting here on a regular basis once again.  I have to say, life looks a lot nicer from the second trimester!  Stay tuned for more recipes and frugal tips.
