This morning Rafa and I both woke up early. He come in to talk to me, about dreams mostly. Then he asked for pancakes.
It was a work morning, a middle-of-the-week morning, and there were things to do. But we made pancakes anyway, just because we could.
Here are some of our favorite pancake variations:
Replace half of the pancake mix with quick-cooking oats, and make as usual.
Squeeze the juice from a lemon from the tree in the backyard into the mix. This only works if you use pancake mix and water, not pancake mix and milk!
Pa invented this one day when there was no more raisin bread. Stir in a half a cup of raisins and a couple of shakes of cinnamon into the mix.
Mixed berry pancakes
Fold some berries (fresh or frozen) into the batter, after you've done the rest of the mixing, or they will fall apart. The berries, that is. And the pancakes will turn out purple.
I guess, since we had pancakes for breakfast today, we really shouldn't have pancakes for dinner too, should we?
