Farmguy’s Dutch Babies

Every Saturday morning the kids tumble out of bed and head to the kitchen. Eventually we meet them there … pots and pans are banged around, counter tops are cluttered with every imaginable breakfast accoutrement and my occasionally clean stove is littered with unidentifiable foodstuffs. My husband shuffles through his loose-leaf stack of splatter-stained recipes. Today he decided on Dutch babies … and the accompanying chaos.

Chaos is the culture in our kitchen. Five people of all shapes and sizes with their own agenda. It’s a mess of mixed up ingredients. Fortunately good things usually result. And then they leave. There’s nothing like peace, quiet and a sink full of dirty dishes.
