Hey! How is everyone's Monday going! I know it's early but I hope it started off great. I know I said I wasn't going to post recipes and things until later but I changed my mind. I'm sharing with you the first meal I made in the new apartment. You know what it was?


Since moving, and working, and not having much time for anything else, including grocery shopping I've been eating a lot of grilled chicken salads and Johns been eating a lot pizza from the local pizza joint.  See? I can't make much with what's in here.

Sunday I finally had a second to run a few errands I needed to get done, including grocery shopping. Yay! No more salads. Actually I'll probably still eat salad (see photo below) it just won't be my only option.

Anyways, back to the pancakes. Friday Jacob came home to see the new apartment for the first time. Because John and I both had to work while still moving, Jacob has been sleeping over his grandparents house since Sunday. Well, he was all excited about his new room, etc. To make him even more excited I let him choose what we were going to have for dinner. He chose pancakes. So that's what we had.

I've tried many pancake recipes in my lifetime and for regular pancakes, these are still the best. My mother made practically everything from scratch when I was growing up but there are only a handful of recipes that I use of hers because I experiment a lot in the kitchen, and her pancakes is one of the ones I use regularly.  I don't even know how to describe them, they are just so light, fluffy and delicious. I almost hate to share the recipe. 



1 1/4 cups of flour
2 TBS sugar
1 egg
3 Tablespoons oil
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1 1/4 cups of milk

Mix all dry ingredients together. Add egg, oil and milk. 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 until bubbly then flip. Serve hot with butter and maple syrup.

I'm actually kind of glad he chose pancakes because if he had chosen something else, I probably wouldn't have been able to make it.
