buttermilk



I decided not long ago to keep fresh buttermilk in the refrigerator all the time. In the past I'd buy it if a recipe called for it; then wait and wait to use it; then Roger would finally drink it, yuk, and then I'd look for it to use. So since I have several recipes that I love fresh buttermilk in I buy it every week now. I just finished making our new buttermilk pancake recipe (this one also had 1/4 cup sour cream, which was free at HEB this week) for the third time since Thursday (my shopping day). The grandkids eat a lot of pancakes and are not hungry for at least an hour.
I also made raspberry syrup. OH my word, I love raspberry syrup. Since I am a lazy bum I did not strain it and there are actual lumps of raspberries occationally. Andrew is the only kid that will eat it and he is very verry careful to not get any seeds or actual berries. In fact his pancake looks like it is slightly sunburned, his portion is so small. On the other hand I have more syrup than pancake.

Having grown up in San Antonio, I LOVED HEB (even met my hubby there!). We moved to N.TX 19 years ago and I miss HEB so much! We have a Central Market but it isn't the same as the plain ol' HEB. I have even written them to ask about putting a store up here and they said there was no distribution point!!!!! Are they kidding? Sounds like an excuse to me! Still, every time I get close enough to one I have to shop!
