Easy Pancake Dinner
It's Monday and I am already pooped. How did that happen? I think it's because I am anxious about a project we are about to start. We decided that since the illustrator has another book series lined up to draw, we would be better off not going to the convention in New York this time and decided it is time to make our master bedroom into our office. This is going to be a huge move for us. It really is a waste of space when you think about it being a bedroom and we spend all of our time in the smallest room in the house now. The illustrator starts to feel really cramped and I totally understand that. I get up and go in and out, but he is at the drawing table all day. So, we have to move everything out, do the floors and paint...oh and move everything else in and redo a bedroom. Ok, now I know why I am tired. Oh and did I mention that I get really stressed when the house is wrecked...well, I get really stressed when the house is a wreck. The illustrator has already had a heart to heart with me about the fact that it will be messed up, but it will be cleaned up too. Luckily, his parents are coming to help us out. It will be nice to get to hang out with them too since it has been a while since we spent time with them one on one.

Since the boys had leftover breakfast pizza (bacon, eggs potato and onion) tonight, I decided to make a quick breakfast for myself. I know everyone has to eat something solo from time to time and I normally just go for a huge veggie omelet when I do this kind of meal. However tonight I wanted fluffy pancakes with my eggs. I did not want syrup though. Sometimes I get like that. I want the texture of pancakes or waffles, but not sweet. I know, weird, but I like it. Anyway, back to the don't have to have a mix for whole wheat pancakes! These are so simple!

Easy Fluffy Pancakes
(serves 1-3 regular size pancakes)

1/2 cup white wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 cup almond milk (or milk of your choice)

Mix the dry ingredients together and then add your milk. Stir to combine and fry in a nonstick skillet or in a little coconut butter in a regular skillet.

Check out the fluff!  So easy and no egg or oil required!

    LOL - love that he had to have that little talk with you ;-) I hope you post some pics of the remodel. And it's only Monday???? Feels like it should be at least Wednesday!

    hmm - you just may have convinced me to switch it up to pancakes tomorrow am!
    something about mondays - I think that is when I am most tired! Hang in there through the "move" - it'll be so worth it in the end, and sounds like you're making a fun project out of it with the in-laws and all. Sometimes i stress myself when I'm making a big mess just to make something more organized - but know it'll be worth it in the end makes it that much better!
    Have a good night, Sarena!

    Yep... pancakes for dinner. There's nothing better sometimes! :)

    Goodluck with the "remodeling" project! If you're spending so much time there, you need to make sure you're comfortable!

    We do pancakes like that too! Love them. You know I'm all about simple recipes. And don't you just love breakfast for dinner on a stressful day?

    Sorry about the stress, Sarena. I'm the same way about a messy house. Your husband is right though - it will be clean and worth the work.

    Your pancakes have my mouth watering. :)

    Hang in there!

    I definitely understand that feeling of cluttered stress! But - it can be fun moving things around! You get to make your home into a new place. It's kinda exciting. Anything to make the day different, I think, makes life a little more special...

    ... kinda like these flapjackers! Totally making them tomorrow. Will post if I manage to not eff them up too bad! :)

    Do you think I could use a gluten free all purpose flour for these?? They look amazing.

    VeriityKae, I do think you could, but I would add a flax egg or xanthan gum to make them stick together.
