Some Days

Yesterday, it was blazing hot outside, and Ella was grumpy, and I was having one of those afternoons where you just want to lie on the floor and stare at the ceiling.

Which meant that for dinner we had these Banana Pancakes:

spread with this. . .

And miraculously, everyone was happy again.

(In my defense, I left the chocolate chips out of the pancakes and I used all wheat flour. So, you know, practically health food).

  1. Oh man! That sounds sooo good! And I totally understand those days where you want to lie on the floor, the cold tile floor, and stare at the ceiling.

  2. Oh, maple syrup mixed with pb?!?! I have to try that. I put some cinnamon/nutmeg in my banana pancakes. Gives them some spice.

  3. I TOTALLY know those days. Unfortunately for my family I usually succumb to the McDonald's dollar menu on those days. Yum yum and lucky Bart.

    fyi: i started reading the wednesday wars after your book club post the other day (because i just joined my first book club… woot) and i LOVE it. LOVE IT.

  5. Yesterday was SO one of those days for me. Philip is out of town and I'm rushing to finish these paintings and B was acting up and hitting and whining and throwing tantrums. Seriously glad that day is behind us.

    Hope today was better for you 🙂

    Nothing beats breakfast for dinner as a pick-me-up!

  7. Now you've made me hungry. Thanks for the recipe. I plan to try it out to uplift my day.

    And poor Ella! The heat can be unbearable sometimes.

  8. No problem with pancakes for dinner. 🙂
    BTW, since you are the guru, I sort of volunteered you to help your aunt M with her blog problems. You have my permission it reach thru cyberspace and smack me.
