Weekends are for relaxing

Standard

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?
