Some people may not know what off-the-grid or off-grid means, so here it is --- The term off-the-grid or off-grid refers to living in a self-sufficient manner without reliance on one or more public utilities.

Off-grid living is no longer a one room log cabin in the woods. It's energy independency. You don't have to rely on utility companies, you create your own power. Today, there are more than 180,000 off-grid homes in the US.

Apple Pancake Rings…

33 degrees - 9:29 am - light rain/snow mix...

Here is a fun twist on the traditional pancake – fresh apples sliced and dipped in pancake batter, then cooked until golden.  Your kids will devour them, and more than likely you will eat a few yourself.  These are great for breakfast or for an after school snack!

~Apple Pancake Rings~

3-4 apples - peeled, cored, sliced to 1/8” thick
Pancake batter
1 t. vanilla
1 t. cinnamon (optional)
Maple syrup

Using your favorite pancake batter, make the pancake mix according to the instructions on the package.  I always add vanilla to my pancakes, it makes them taste like they didn’t come from a box.  This would also be the time to add the cinnamon if you wanted to use it.

Dip apple slices into batter, coating all sides.  {Just a quick note:  semi-thick batter will work best when it comes to getting the pancake batter to stick to the apples.}

Cook them just like you would a regular pancake, about one minute the first side, and about 30 seconds after you flip.  I have a gas stove so I always use my stove top griddle and I love it!

Serve warm with your favorite maple syrup or top with powdered sugar.
