Gooood morning sunshines!
I hope you all had a great night! I had a pretty good one, though nothing too crayzay went down. I don’t have a lot of time to write this, so I’m just going to throw up a bunch of pics and hope for the best .
My good friend Dawn (who I mentioned yesterday, recently engaged!) came over and we chatted for a while and got caught up before heading out to the bar.
Here is another pic of the lovebirds for you, because I think it’s funny.
Two peas in a pod.
And here is a pic of Dawn and I just before we left, though it is not funny.
I was excited to see her!
Ando also came along for the ride…
And we met up with our good friend Joel and some of his friends.
And I saw a former coworker who I used to work with at Chapters (like Barnes and Noble, Canadian edition. I worked there for about four years while in school and LOVED it there!)
When in doubt, throw up a peace sign. Or a million pictures of yourself…
And we made some new friends as well…
Like with the bouncer. Good times.
It was a decent night, and we were home by 11:30. 11:30?! What is wrong with us? I guess this is what happens when you get old. Yowza. I was grateful for the early night though.
This morning I thought I would be a nice girlfriend and let Alejandrew sleep in while I made us a big breakfast. We only had one egg, and we’re out of bread, so not a lot of options were happening in our kitchen, so I thought pancakes would be the best way to go.
But I didn’t want ordinary pancakes…I wanted oatmeal pancakes!
I saw a recipe on Julie’s blog not too long ago for oatmeal pancakes that looked intriguing, and I had all the ingredients for it so I thought I’d give it a go.
Amazing. Delicious, yet wholesome and healthy! This recipe was a winner. Different from your ordinary pancakes, and so, so good. It tasted almost like banana bread, without the bananas. I made it into my favourite combo by topping my pancakes with a smear of peanut butter, half of a sliced banana, and syrup, and dug in.
I foodgasm’d my way through this entire meal.
Here is the recipe, I followed Julie’s exactly, except I used whole wheat flour:
Serves 2 – 3
- 1/2 c. + 1/3 c. all-purpose flour (I used whole wheat)
- 1 tbsp. sugar
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 1/2 tbsp. melted butter
- 3/4 c. milk
- 1/3 c. oatmeal, cooked
- 1/4 c. raw oats
- 1 tbsp. honey
- 1 large egg
Whisk the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking soda, salt and cinnamon) together in a large bowl. In a smaller bowl, whisk the butter, milk, cooked oatmeal, raw oats, honey and egg together until thoroughly combined. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.
Cook pancakes on a hot griddle sprayed with cooking spray for 2 –3 minutes on one side before flipping and cooking the other side.
Top with whatever’s clever and EAT!!!!
We are off to hit up Ando’s parents for the day. Have a good one!
