Sunday Brunch

Colder today--went for a jog and the rain started 2 miles in..of course I was still two miles from home as well. It eased, but I came home ready for a hot shower and some breakfast...how do blueberry pancakes sound?

Blueberries have been on sale at all the stores here, so I grabbed a few packs to eat and freeze for smoothies.


Mix the batter and let it set up for a minute--necessary for consistency--batter thickens.


First pancake blues--the trick here is to make sure your pan is hot enough. No one ever wants to wait, though..so I always do a lone, tiny starter just to ensure correct temperature.


all good--let's get serious.


The maple syrup sticks!!!! Hooray for Tavo's Super Strength :)


Here' Tavo's plate--he's a purist. Maple syrup and butter.


I put yogurt on mine.


Time for another cup of coffee and our day begins...(hey Buffalo--I'm wearing a Wayne State sweatshirt--there's some Michigan pride for you! My alma mater)

Pancakes (carb-loading!) is always a good idea after a cold, wet run..
