Word of the Day (Or more realistically, word of the month). I really like!!!! This site has some nice features which includes, among other neat features, a thesaurus that I love. But one other feature I find fascinating is the word of the day. My vocabulary stinks (enough said). So this feature that picks words (and many times within due season........pun intended) is a helpful tool.

The site always has a catchy phrase, like, "As leaves fall, learn the specific name of the rustling sound they make." So naturally, one's interest is peaked. And viola, you have..........the word of the day.:D
Anyways, the word of the day today is:
a soft murmuring or rustling sound; whisper.

Rice Pancakes....Not with Bean flour, not with sorghum, not with corn starch, not with millet....

I had to figure this out b/c most recipes that are gluten-free have corn starch or sorghum, or millet it that Pierce and I can't have. Plus it gets so expensive buying this flour and that flour.........

RICE Pancakes...........

2c. white rice flour
1/4 c. tapioca flr (in the Asian aisle)

1 tsp. salt ( 1 full tsp. yes, b/c I like salt)

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. guar gum (health food store)

1/4 c. brown sugar

1 tbsp. honey

1/2 c. egg replacer*

1/2 c. oil

1 tsp. vanilla

2 c. water

Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl then add the wet ingredients and stir.Pour batter on a buttered cast iron or non-stick skillet.
*The egg replacer I use is boiled flax seeds. 3 cups boiling water, then add 1/3 cup of whole flax seeds. Boil for 5 min. Strain immediately. Let cool if you have time.I double the egg replacer and store it in a mason jar for the rest of the week. But if you can have eggs then use 2 eggs for the rice pancakes.

Why Must Good Things Come to an End????

I totally agree with the comment of one individual, and I quote

"I hate this song!

No, let me finish. . . ...

I hate this song! cause it has an ending! Huhu

Seriously, the part that I was really disappointed in was when it stopped, because that great music just had to be done. . . Hmmm"
