In my second book, Suitcases, Schools, and Survival several chapters are devoted to the adventures I had while living for a year in Denmark, New Zealand, a small country town on the North Island. I had scads of stories too numerous to fit into just one book.
One of the things I didn't mention much was the wonderful food they had there. Of course I had to bring a cookbook back with me, but somehow it just doesn't taste quite the same with our ingredients. However, here is a quick easy one they often brought for their "supper" which we would call a late night snack after youth group.
1 egg 1/4 cp sugar - beat together until thick.
1 cp flour, 1 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp salt - combine, then add with 3/4 cp milk and mix smoothly. Last, stir in 2 Tb melted butter. Drop by small spoonful on hot griddle and quickly fry on both sides. Cool. Spread jam on, and a dab of whip cream.

What a week! As a teacher on a Hutterite colony for grade 5-12, life is non-stop from 9:00-3:30. This coming Friday is the end of quarter, so report cards will be due. So that always makes one extra busy.
But I had 2 highlights in this week.
The first: I came home and stumbled over something on my step. When I picked it up and entered, I found out I was holding MY copy of my book! I felt like a mother receiving her first child. The awe and wonder of holding something I'd created and labored over for - yes, about nine months- well, that is quite the feeling.
The second: Last night the doorbell rang. I answered and a man stood there with a floral arrangement. I was sure he'd come to the wrong house, but he had the right name. Imagine my amazement when I saw that friends from the States had arranged these lovely roses to be delivered to celebrate this milestone in my life. In today's Covid restrictions, such a thoughtful, kind gesture means SO much! I never get flowers, so I'm still just smiling over it.
