Busy Morning!

Ryan and I went out early this morning and harvested a bounty of gorgeous veggies!
They promptly got washed, chopped, and put into the crock pot for a hearty vegetable soup for tonight's dinner! The abundance of jalapeƱos are going into some Mexican cornbread since my tomatoes aren't ripe enough for salsa yet.
With dinner simmering in the crock, I made some "Pop Up Pancakes" for breakfast. You've got to try these!

(Makes 12)
* 1 cup milk
* 1 cup flour
* 6 eggs
* 1/4 cup melted butter
* dash salt
* Preheat oven at 400
Put all the ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth. Pour batter into VERY well greased muffin tins. Bake for 15-20 minutes until browned. John Paul says we should call them "Volcano Pancakes" since that's what they look like when they're cooking! Serve them hot, right out of the oven!
Daniel and John Paul had as much fun watching them pop-up in the oven as they did eating them!
