B4 THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 2012 T HE M AGEE C OURIER | páãéëçå=`çìåíó=kÉïë Breakfast for dinner BY PEGGY KELLY STAFF WRITER H ave you ever had dessert first at dinner? Or how about a topsy-turvy day? Have breakfast for dinner. Not everyone likes getting up and cooking a big, old-fashioned type breakfast, even on the weekend, b ut having one for dinner is a nice change. With Fat Tuesday being Pancake Day, that seems to be a perfect time to settle down f or a morning meal in the evening. In our family, we go for a bit of everything with a breakfast dinner, such as: pancakes or waffles, meat ( sausage, bacon or goet- ta), a plate full of scrambled eggs, and sometimes hash browns. We might change it up with a breakfast casserole and have muffins on the side. I’m making myself hungry writing about it. For those who want to know, goetta is apparently a Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky item. A possibility about the name is that it comes from the German word "gote" or “gotte” which means peeled grain. It is a staple in that area for breakfast. It contains a mixture of pork, pinhead oats (steel cut oats) and spices. You fry it up in slabs and most serve it with syrup. For the pancakes or waffles, we go several routes - rom scratch, a b ox mix, or even muffin mixes. Adding in fresh or f rozen fruit can also jazz up flapjacks. Fluffy Pancakes 3 /4 cup milk 2 tablespoons white v inegar 1 cup all-purpose flour 2 tablespoons white sugar 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 egg 2 tablespoons butter, melted cooking spray fresh fruit slices or frozen fruit (optional) Combine milk with vinegar in a medium bowl and set aside for 5 minutes to "sour". Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Whisk egg and butter into "soured" milk. Pour the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and whisk until lumps are gone. Heat a large skillet over medium heat, and coat w ith cooking spray. Pour 1/4 cupfuls of batter onto t he skillet – an ice cream scoop or soup ladle works well for this step. Place f ruit pieces/slices in batter once it starts to set and c ook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip with a spatula, and cook until browned on the other s ide. Be careful the fruit does not burn. Goetta Recipe 2-3 pounds pork should er 8 cups water 3-4 cups chopped onion 2 large bay leaves 2 ribs celery, chopped with leaves 1 tablespoon salt, or more to taste 1 tablespoon pepper, or more to taste Poultry seasoning to taste 3 cups pinhead oats Cut meat into chunks and put in pot with water, onions, bay, celery, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and lower to simmer. Cook, uncovered, and stirring occasionally, for 2 hours. Remove bay leaf. Meat should be real tender and fall off bone if that’s what you’re using. Strain and chop meat and veggies finely – most folks generally use a meat grinder to get a finer and more even texture - one option is to grind the m eat only without the onions and celery. Set m eat mixture aside. Pour liquid back into pan and add pinhead oats. Bring to a boil then lower to a simmer. C ook, uncovered, stirring often, for another 2 hours. Mixture will be thick. Add meat mixture a nd seasonings. Simmer another 1 -2 hours. Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary. Line 3-4 loaf pans with aluminum foil a nd spray each one. Pour goetta into pans, packing down firmly. Let cool to room temperature, then refrigerate. For a creamy, softer goetta, cover pans. U ncovered, you get a crisper crust. Keeps for a couple weeks in frig, or several months in freezer. Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour 3/4 cup sugar 1 teaspoon baking pow- der 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 egg 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1/2 cup plain yogurt 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 cup mashed ripe bananas 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips I n a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, bak- i ng powder, baking soda and salt. In another bowl, combine the egg, oil, y ogurt and vanilla. Stir into dry ingredients just u ntil moistened. Fold in bananas and chocolate chips. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups t wo-thirds full. Bake at 350 degrees F for 22-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.

BY PEGGY KELLY STAFF WRITER Alka Seltzer was introduced on February 21, 1931. Hmm, I would have thought it might be New Year’s Day. February 22nd is Girl Scout Thinking Day. This is a day girl scouts around the world think about each other and learn more about people who live in other countries. Woolworth's, the first chain store, opened in Utica, NY in Feb. 22, 1879. However, the first successful Woolworth store was opened on July 18, 1879 by Frank Winfield Woolworth in Lancaster, Penn. The F. W. Woolworth Company was a retail company that was one of the original American five-and-dime stores. When F. W. Woolworth and his brother Sum opened a store in Scranton the sign read "5¢ & 10¢ WOOLWORTH BRO'S STORE" thus becoming the first five-and-ten-cent (dime) store in the world. Woolworth’s grew to be one of the largest retail chains in the world through most of the 20th century. Unfortunately increased competition led to the chain going out of business in July 1997. Do you remember eating at one of their lunch counter’s? I sure do. When I first started working, they were considered “fast- food” near where I worked. F.W. Woolworth lunch counter menu from 1957.
