I like to think of myself a person who is very willing to share. “Sharing” can actually mean giving something as an outright gift: for example, to “share” one's food really means to give some of it as a gift.
So let me share with you this old favorite cookbook of mine. It's copyrighted 1977, the birth year of my first born son. It's a book I haven't used in quite a few years. With busy lives, little kids and a job it was hard to always keep the sour dough starter going, let alone to find time to bake breads.
But life sometimes slows down and I thought it was time to make another starter, and so I did Sunday night. Last night while scanning the book for my first new recipe I found sour dough pancakes.
This is what they looked like this morning. They are so light and fluffy, melt in your mouth goodness. You will forget all about the real butter you have slathered on them, or the maple syrup.

This recipe from page 61 might just be my next favorite. I remember making these over 30 years ago and they were delicious.
Back to sharing.
Lizzie wanted to share her "Pink Lizzy" with Bentley but there just wasn't room.
I even shared my bucket of water with her today, between transplanting some grass.
She then wandered (okay we took her back there) to the raspberries. The wild raspberries are almost finished, but still we found a few. As much as I love these myself, I shared.
And a few more I shared with her.
Now to things I really didn't want to share.
Did you know gallbladder disease is hereditary? Well that is what they told the newlywed. Yes, the daughter inherited gallstones from her mother. Me, I gave it to her!
So tomorrow at 9 AM, she is having surgery. Not something a young bride needs just 3 1/2 months into her marriage. But I have no fear the new son in law will take great care of her.
Now let me share my recipe for Whiskey slush with you, because tomorrow might be a stressful day for this mother living 352 miles away from the surgery center.
12 oz frozen lemonade
6 oz frozen Orange juice
1 cup sugar
6 cups water
2 cups prepared tea (I used 2 cups water and 3 tea bags)
1 1/2 cups bourbon
Mix all together in a large plastic container.
Place in freezer, stir about every 6 to 12 hours for the first day or two.
Serve with spoon and add a little bit of white soda.
Or spoon it straight into your mouth if the need be!
