{Too Good to be Breakfast}

***The working wife diaries provides tips, shares trials, and just chats about the homemaking experiences of a working wife: ME!
I have a delicious breakfast recipe for you.
It is also a quick recipe.  Even better, eh?

I began craving this breakfast meal on Sunday night, so Monday morning I whipped it up.  I am still enjoying it today. 

I can not express the joy of being able to actually fulfill a craving.  It is like manna from heaven, but probably tastier.
Most mornings I am rushing out the door to work, so it is either a bagel, toast, or oatmeal.
With the week off for Thanksgiving, I was able to indulge in a pregnancy craving.  Finally.
So, here is the recipe.  I learned to make this meal when I would babysit a particular family.  A particular family who now has one married daughter and one engaged daughter.  Who me?  No, I’m not old.
The mother often had me make this meal for dinner. 
Dutch Babies is the name of the meal.  Heard of it?  It is Delish.
Try it out and tell me what you think!

  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup sifted all-purpose flour

  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter
