Don’t worry I’m not crazy. Okay, at the very least, I’m not any crazier than I was yesterday. I know it’s not Friday (it’s totally Saturday), but let’s pretend that it is Friday because I really want to share this recipe with you.
I had every intention of posting this yesterday, I promise. But then I spontaneously joined an all-girls bike gang, cruised to a friend’s house on the river for sausages, sangria, and s’mores, and adventured home along a dark, winding road that one of my friends described as “the perfect intro to a horror movie” singing songs that would be hilarious and inappropriate for a wedding. It was great fun, but I got home late. So, let’s go back in time and pretend that it’s still Friday.
I sort of tend to get obsessed with things. Not every thing I like, but some things. When the obsession takes hold, it is very intense. It’s not always a bad thing. Once I was really obsessed with taking a multivitamin every night. Anyway, here are a few things that I am currently obsessed with: Downton Abbey, Mini Eggs, Pinterest, bright colours, greeting cards/stationary in general, other people’s weddings, and most importantly, pancakes on Sunday.
I think that we have had pancakes on Sunday morning for the past 6 weeks. I just can’t seem to stop. This is pretty out of the ordinary because I’m not generally a huge pancake fan.
To be honest, it’s sort of fun having a Sunday routine (or tradition if you want to call it that). It’s comforting and special – something to look forward to during the week. And why shouldn’t it be delicious pancakes? You’re right! It should definitely be delicious pancakes. Okay, I’m glad that we settled it. Pancakes, it is!
I love this recipe. It’s one that I’ve made a few weekends in a row and is essentially a mix of all my favorite things and/or things that we always have in the kitchen. The greek yogurt/milk substitute for 1 cup buttermilk if you’re more of a buttermilk kind of person. Feel free to make these pancakes your own. Add what you want (chocolate chips, banana, pecans, rainbow sprinkles, whatever). Go nuts.
