It's back to school today! Where did the summer go? It seemed like it just started, then *POOF*, it's back to school. Anyone else feel that way? The school district in my town is going through a lot of changes, and reconfiguring of the schools, so Jacob was a bit nervous. He was expecting to go to second grade in the same school he went to first grade in, but at the end of the year they informed us of the reconfiguring, so he was a bit nervous, especially since seeing the size of the school but he'll do fine though. I think I was more nervous than him!
Okay, so I hope your not sick of pancakes. This recipe I created by accident. It was a hot day and I didn't want to turn the oven on and make the house any hotter so I decided to make pancakes. I mixed the dry ingredients, then when it came time to add the milk, I realized I only had a little bit left. Whoops.
I was about to throw it away, because I had already added the egg, and oil, and everything else but without all the milk I figured I'd just have to toss it….THEN…I opened the fridge one more time, just to really make sure I didn't have milk and the carton of yogurt was staring me in the face. Why the heck not? I thought. I warned John that dinner might be a flop, so he could be on standby to grab a pizza in case it went all wrong. Once the first batch was done, I was reluctant to try but I was pleasantly surprised. They were really good. Here's how you can make them to.
1 1/4 cups of flour
2 TBS sugar
3 Tablespoons oil
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup of milk
1/2 cup of plain yogurt
3/4 cup blueberries (add more if you'd like!)
Mix blueberries and all dry ingredients together. Add eggs, oil and milk, and yogurt. Mix just until wet. If you over mix the pancakes will be flat. Just mix until the mixture begins to bubble slightly.
Pour by 1/4 cup on to a heated skillet. Cook on one side until bubbly then flip. Serve hot with butter and maple syrup.
Isn't it nice when mistakes turn out good? Now if only that could happen all the time!
