Then I had them color on sheets of paper.
And this lasted for about 2 minutes. Harper had no interest and Henry, who usually loves doing projects was done after about 4 pieces of paper.
So I ended up finishing this little kid project by myself. Not the joyous experience I was going for, but I have to remind myself that they're only 1 and 3. She's a funny looking bird, eh?
My bad mood didn't go away the entire day...and Monday morning was right around the corner. I prayed for patience before I got out of bed and decided to make some pancakes. They put us all in a good mood because they were so yummy! I enjoyed mine with peanut butter and honey.
Whole Wheat Pancakes (from www.allrecipes.com)
1 cup whole wheat flour
2/3 cup flour
1/3 cup wheat germ (I used wheat bran)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 tbl brown sugar (I'm sure this could easily be left out...but sounded good)
1 tsp salt
5 1/3 tbl unsalted butter (I cut way back on this)
2 1/2 cups buttermilk (I added about 1 tbl vinegar to skim milk for this)
- In a large bowl, combine the whole wheat flour, white flour, wheat germ or oats, baking powder, baking soda, brown sugar, and salt.
- Cut the butter into small pieces with a knife, and add the butter to the flour-mixture. Mix until the mixture has a sand-like consistency.(I just melted my butter and added it.)
- Make a well in the center of the flour-butter mixture, and add the buttermilk and eggs. Stir until the liquids are fully incorporated.
- Fry up on your pan and enjoy! (with peanut butter and honey, of course!)
I hope you all have a lovely Tuesday!
