Confession: I am a pancake snob. I am in love with Bisquick pancakes. I mean really IN LOVE with them. Last night after blogging, I was dreaming about pancakes and couldn't wait for morning so I could sink my teeth into a warm stack of delicious pancakes. Another confession: I CRAVE pancakes when Brooks is out of town... it must be my comfort food of choice... good thing he comes back tonight! You see, as a young girl I remember climbing up on a bar stool watching my Grandpa George flip these fluffy delicate pancakes. The smell of freshly cooked pancakes brings back so many memories. Yes, I am a pancake snob...to me there are not many other pancakes that compare to my Grandpas.
Due to years of making pancakes from this yellow box I have no need of following the recipe...it is just my pancake intuition. MMMM look how fluffy? And most importantaly- I NEVER flatten them with a spatula! I cringe when I see that... it takes patience people!
Then, still warm, I cover them with whip cream and berries and wash it down with a cold glass of milk. Todays choice: blackberries. MMMM. Today, I sat down and mindfully enjoyed each and every bite of my stack of pancakes. Today is going to be a good day. Nixon and I are having and PJ and pancake party. No really, we are still in our our PJs...
Love you Grandpa...one day we will be eating pancakes together again.
