If you haven’t read this story I highly recommend it, I also love ‘If you give a Moose a Muffin’. The stories have a life lesson, delivered in a child story.
The only way the story relates to my post today is if you give me a recipe I like to play with it until I’m sick of eating it, and I have a pancake recipe to share, that was shared with me.
I love when people share ideas! Isnt that what eating is all about? I find it annoying when people get all secretive over their recipes. I mean, come on, what if Betty Crocker or Julia Child kept their recipes to themselves? Where would we be? Im not either of those amazing ladies, however I do like playing with my food!
First off here is what I put in my belly
B- Poached Eggs, Prosciutto, Herb Polenta and hot chocolate 418/22.6
S – Strawberries (1.5 cups) 96.25/1.18
L – hot Dog on a bun, mustard, ketchup, cheetos 335/9
S – Banana with almond butter
D – Chicken Stir Fry with Portabella Mushrooms on Japanese noodles. 369/39.17
S – Walnuts 100/1
Ok so ya went to a BBQ and ate the food and it was soo freakin good! So I have no clue what my calories are. However Im still going to list what I ate.
I started breakfast with a new super easy ‘pancake’ recipe. Here is a little story about me and pancakes. I very much dislike them and always have, when I was little my mom made pancakes almost every Sunday. My brother loves pancakes, and Sunday was his day to pick breakfast. I dreaded Sunday breakfast, the thick nastiness of flour morphed into this round disks and we are suppose to eat them. All my life I have had people tell me “my pancakes are the best, I will change your mind” I would politely eat one and my mind was still set – nasty round disks of wet flour. It wasn’t until I was about 15 or 16 I finally told my mom how much I disliked them. (trust me my moms cooking was and is amazing! There aren’t to many things she makes that I dislike) She said “Sweetie, then I will make you waffles..” Oi I shoulda said something years ago!
When my friend posted this recipe, I had to look. How could you make pancakes without flour? I love the concept of pancakes and I love waffles. Well whom ever came up with this idea was genius! I had them, loved them and will be making them again! They are crepe like, but not a crepe or a pancake. Plus they are oh so easy!!!
I didnt use Stevia, I didnt use sugar. I treated them like crepes and stuffed them with a sour cream mixture and Strawberries.Which is also super easy!
1 Tbsp per pancake Sour cream
a dash of sugar
spices – like cinnamon, nutmeg, whatever you like
a splash of vanilla
Here is my adventure in making them — By the way have I ever mentioned how much I hate my stove? It has a mind of its own and I never know how hot it is going to get or if low works…. sigh… I cant wait for a new kitchen!!
Yea the burner got really hot
It was still good!
Great thing about these lil guys, they are only 68 calories each without any filling!
Off to a BBQ today!
Oh so much good food!
Turkey burgers, Potato Salad (not sure what all was in it, but the carmelized onions were a hit! Im not a fan of onions but damn that make the salad!) Deviled eggs, fresh fruit and veggies, Cheesecake and a pineapple angel food cake! Yum!!!
