Last week the kids did NOT, I repeat, NOT want cereal one more time. As if. And you wanna know what I did NOT want one more time? Pancakes. Good lord, how many days of pancakes can you have? If I ever actually ask, “What do you want for breakfast?” The answer is:
Seeing as how I had already made french toast earlier in the week with homemade whip cream and strawberries galore, I was not into another breakfast requiring syrup. So I pulled down my muffin cookbook. Nah. Nothing sounded good there either. So I googled:
And I didn’t have all of the ingredients for a single recipe. Not one.
So I made one up. And it was good. And the kids asked for it the next day for breakfast. And the day after that. By day three the whole 9×13 pan was gone. I guess I did something right!
