It’s pouring. It’s dark and gloomy. And I am lazy. So lazy in fact that I didn’t take the normal 40-50 pictures of my food for you. I took 3. And they were all “eh”. But it’s a lazy Sunday so I’m sure that you can forgive me. Will you forgive me?
As lazy as I am on dark and rainy weekend mornings, I still want my big, cozy meal. What is cozy and filling without all the fuss? Pancakes, my friends. The answer is pancakes.
You can do one of two things. Create your pancakes from scratch like I did with my Homemade Carrot Cake Pancakes with Cream Cheese Frosting OR get out your pancake mix (mine happened to be the Fiber One Complete Pancake Mix) and add a little love to it. My love of choice for this morning was fresh blueberries, lemon zest, vanilla and cinnamon.
My little fluffy pancakes tasted like a gourmet chef made them. Mind you they TASTED gourmet-ish but the appearance was that of a lazy wife trying to squish all of her pancake batter into her large skillet at once.
Try it! Give your pancake mix a little love next time. You won’t regret it – even on your laziest of days.
