Yikes it’s been quiet around here. I was in a bit of a cooking rut. But I’m beginning to pull myself out. Usually I come back from a trip so excited to be in my own kitchen, but not this time. Maybe it’s the weather. Can I please blame the weather? The sky has been the same color of grey for as long as I can remember. I’m fine with the cold! It means I get to wear this fabulous thing. But this dull grey has got to go. It was sunny right when I got up this morning, and then it went away. Such a tease!
In winter, I eat a lot of blueberries. I put them in my oatmeal, which I eat everyday at work for breakfast (during the cold months). You’d think I’d be sick of them, but no. I’m actually feeling rather addicted to them. But eating oatmeal on Saturday feels sacrilegious, you need something with more butter! Well, I actually put butter in my oatmeal, but that doesn’t really make it special. Since I don’t have a live in 1950s housewife to make me pancakes during the week, pancakes are special.
I used Mark Bittman’s recipe for Everyday Pancakes . Along with adding blueberries, I put in the butter he notes as being optional. Not optional, this is Saturday! Brandon thought they were great ( thank you Brandon). I thought they were pretty good, coulda been better, but still Saturday morning worthy!
