I am not remotely ready to go back to work, but back I go tomorrow morning. I had things I wanted to get done while I was on vacation and most of them didn’t happen. Trying to let it all go, since there’s nothing I can do about it now. However, I did manage to squeak one thing in today.
I love pancakes, but they are usually a holiday/long weekend breakfast. Early in December I picked up a cool griddle pan at Costco and I was looking forward to trying it out when my vacation started. When vacation finally did roll around, I was so tired and I kept thinking I would feel better the next day…Which I didn’t, since all that was leading up to the flu.
Finally, today was the day.
Is that not a cool looking pan?
While I was at it, I decided to try out a new recipe. For years now, I’ve been using a Nigella Lawson pancake recipe that I’ve been quite happy with. But, I have a new cookbook to start experimenting with.
It actually is very similar to the recipe I had been using; I guess pancakes are pretty basic.
It took a bit of practice to get the right amount of batter in the little molds and to flip the pancakes without messing them up, but it made such fun little pancakes!
I thought they came out looking really nice, and they had a nice light and fluffy texture. I did think they tasted a bit salty, but Husband did not notice that. I will definitely make them again, but cut back on the salt a little bit maybe.
All in all, a successful kitchen experiment and an appropriate breakfast for the snowy day we woke up to.
