i-Algena Upper ft** M*tn*t totHt»«ry, March 14, 19W We h»W just finished * pancake supper and I am happy to report that the old fashioned buckwheat cake recipe that Mrs. C. B. Murtagh sent me is 1he real thing! Just like the ones I remembered eating. * - * • I also received a nice letter from Mrs. Ed Weisbrod of Fentoh who kindly offered to tell me about buckwheat pancakes. Her recipe is supposed to be a secret but she says it really is not The idea back of the pancake starter is to be neighborly. One woman makes the starter according to the "secret" recipe and then passes it on to a neighbor who gives it in turn to someone else. If one neighbor's starter runs out, she can go to another and get a fresh start again. The old tradition is that the recipe is never written down but passes by word of mouth. * * * It seems to me thei anything that promotes neighborliness is a good thing. Personally. I have some fine neighbors but I don't see much of them now that we don't hang our clothes outside. Fm looking forward to the warm weather when we can hang our laundry, catch up with our backyard chatter and air the baby at the same time. Meanwhile maybe we can trade pancake starter. If Chris Reese can make, friends with his coffee gulping, 'maybe I can do the same with pancakes. Incidentally, several cups of coffee must accompany the pancakes. * • * Here if Mrs, Murlagh's recipe: (A) Break up l i cake yeast and let it soak 15 minutes in H cup lukewarm water. Then add it to 1 pint sour milk or buttermilk. Stir in 1 cup pure buckwheat flour until smooth, and let rise overnight (12 noun). (B) Hext; morning, remove and save one 1 cup of the batter for starter. Then to the remainder of the batter, add 1 cup sweet milk, H cup white flour, *4 cop pure buckwheat flour, 2 level tablespoons brown sugar, 1 well btaten egg, 1 level teaspoon coda, 1 level teaspoon cream of tarter, *fc teaspoon' baking powder, 4 teaspoon salt. Stir well and bake on light greased hot griddle. (C) In the evening, take the starter saved from the morning and to it add 1 cup sweet milk and \i cup pure buckwheat flour. Stir and let stand overnight. Next morning follow directions (BV If on any morning more cakes are desired than this recipe makes, add another cup of sweet milk or water. >.« cup white flour. '4 cup pure buckwheat flour. If desired thinner, add wa-) ter. Make a new starter every ten days. * • • At our house, we prefer to eat pancakes for supper. I guess we don't get up early enough in the morning to work up appetite for i them then. These pancakes are very tender and while the gr.ddle i should be hot. it should not be too hot or you will find they lear . apart like they d:d for me and \ one- baking had Jo be thrown out. , I didn't have any sour rr.iJk so 1 ] UM.-CJ >w«*t ir.iik with a tittle v:n- , tj^ar add^d.

The only trouble is, they just barely get over one stage and they're into another. • • » Ophelia, the kitchen cvnic, says, "The mother who complains that her children never make any bright remarks, just isn't listening closely enough to the little ones." Several mothers I have talked with recently say that they just ought to write down some of the things the children say so ihey will be sure to remember them later. I think that is a wonderful idea. Do that, and send them to Grace so that we can all enjoy them.
