What happens when you sleep in till 10 in the morning after staying up till midnight playing Fallout: New Vegas and then wake up and decide, “You know what, I feel eating pancakes.” ? Well turns out, you get your lazy butt up and make pancakes.
I have to confess, this is the first time I have slept in past 9 in the morning in years. Years, I tell you. Why? I’m not sure, I just don’t like sleeping in all that much. It bothers me somehow, like I’m wasting my day or something. ( Which doesn’t make a lot of sense because I’m down for taking naps in the middle of the day any time you ask but if I made sense I wouldn’t be me, would I? ) So I was actually super surprised that I felt lazy enough to sleep in that late. But when I did finally get up, my tastebuds wanted pancakes.
I struggled a bit making these pancakes, not because they’re hard to make or because I’m capable of burning water* ( I actually make a mean baked potato soup with home made rue and all the works so A+ kitchen skills for me ), but because my blood sugar was low. Very low. I get lightheaded very easily if I don’t eat enough, so after not having eaten since dinner the evening before ( that’s what, 18 hours or so without food? ) I was in need of those pancakes.
*I have never actually burned water, just want to put that out there. Not that you can, but still.
I piled myself some of those bad boys up in a bowl with blueberries and honey and boy, where they good. It was about 11:30 or so by the time I finally took a bite, after mixing and cooking and cleaning up after myself ( because you do not want to leave a dirty kitchen for your mother to clean up ( not because she’s threatened to tie a pork chop around your neck and leave you in the foothills for the coyotes to eat or anything, but because you’re a nice person who wants to help your mother out** ) ), and also after taking a couple of pictures just for you, yes that’s right, wonderful you, who is so special and who I appreciate so much for being here with me reading this ( I truly do ).
**Or both. Both is a possibility.
They tasted as good they look. Maybe even better. It was a milk free, egg free recipe ( though I did use extra butter ), so my mother could eat them without feeling bad afterward. It was good start to a great lazy day, and later in the evening, the extra pancakes had fried chicken piled on top of them for a great breakfast-y dinner. Yum.
Now I’m off to drink even more caffeine then I did this morning, because it’s going to be another late night. The Rhythmic Gymnastics All Around Individual Finals comes on here in my area at 23:30, and won’t end until 0:30. Then, at 9 tomorrow morning the group finals will be on, and I don’t want to miss either of them. Olympics over sleep is what I say. They only come every four years, so might as well watch all you can, right?
Let’s go USA!!!!! WHOOO!!!!!
