This morning a friend posted on Facebook that he was making pancakes….and the rest is history, well, except that I was out of milk and it was 36* outside. No laughing northern friends and family: in Houston that is COLD!
So after some procrastination, and a rise in temp to 38*, I finally got my tired behind out of bed (you see Rex and Roxy – known as R&R were up at 1130 last night wanting outside and then not settling down until 1230. I didn’t get back to sleep until 130). I bundled up and headed to the grocery store. It was worth it, too – milk was on sale!! $2.50 a gallon. Cheap by Houston standards.
Anyway, so I got home, pulled out the trusty Betty Crocker cookbook and looked up a recipe for homemade pancakes. I pulled some blueberries out of the freezer, and I was on my way to a delicious breakfast of whole wheat blueberry pancakes with scrambled eggs.
I am out of maple syrup, buy I have some wonderful local honey from “Bee Wild” that was a great compliment for the pancakes.
I also made a nice cup of Chai tea sweetened with a some honey as well.
