Weekends are for relaxing


Ha!  In my dreams, weekends do not involve long lists of chores and wedding to do lists… But until September or so…

Last weekend marked exactly 3 months until our wedding!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Seriously unbelievable.  On weekends one of my favorite things to do is make a delicious breakfast and sit down at the table to enjoy a few minutes with my beloved.  It always seems to make the chores a little less blah.  It is also such a nice way to slow down and reconnect with Sweetie Scone.

Over the weekend we were feeling kind of pancakey.  So I hopped on the handy Pinterest site and searched for a new recipe (still trying to find the perfect go to recipes for pancakes).  What I found was easy, quick, and straight up wonderful, would you like to see?

I figure it’s not nice to tease you with a picture and not share the recipe, so here it is!  (note this recipe is for 1 pie plate, they are super filling)

2 eggs
1/2 cup milk (** minus 1/2 teaspoon)
 ** 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup flour
dash of salt
dash of cinnamon
1 tablespoon butter
preheat oven to 425 degrees.
whisk together the eggs, milk, flour, salt and cinnamon in a bowl.
while the oven is preheating, melt the butter in a pie pan or 9 inch square pan.
pour the batter into the hot melted buttered pan.
bake 10-12 minutes (or until the pancake is firm and has puffed around the edges).
the pancake will shrink down a bit after coming out of the oven (that’s ok.) serve right away with lemon juice, powdered sugar, maple syrup, or fruit.
** this is a modification I made, the original recipe does not have vanilla, I replaced 1/2 teaspoon of milk/fluid with vanilla to add a little oomph
**** I used non-fat milk and they turned out great, all of the other German Pancake recipes I found called for whole milk, which I am sure is also fantastic, but it’s not in our house or our diet…
Even if the only relaxing thing we do together is have a nice breakfast, it really makes the weekend feel like a relaxing break from work.  Do you have any weekend traditions that help you reconnect?
