We decided to do a lazy Sunday pancake breakfast: Cheese Danish Pancakes.
Into the bowl:
–Egg………….whoa. stop. NO EGGS in the fridge.
Somebody forgot to put them on the list when he used the last ones. Grr!! What to do without an egg?!?! I decided that if vegans can eat pancakes it must be possible, so after Googling a few vegan recipes that seemed to just use some baking powder instead, we added baking powder and proceeded.
What a mess!!! The pancakes had absolutely no structure and turned into a scrambled pile:
So we decided to see if they would turn into oatmeal. After all, the only thing missing from a usual oatmeal recipe (other than the fact that we blended the oats and that there was lots of cottage cheese weighing them down) was more water. So we put the failed cakes into a pot along with the extra batter, added some water, and cranked up the heat –
It worked quite well! Not as thick as regular oatmeal, but more like oatmeal porridge.
With some granola plank and almond butter –
And a cup of tiramisu coffee –
And they lived happily ever after!
I updated the Tribute To Oatmeal page. Check out the oatmeal fashion show!
We’re headed up to Meredith’s lake house (about an hour drive) in a few hours, but I think I’m going to mow the grass for some low-intensity exercise first. We were supposed to run today, but I’m feeling a little stiff so I think I’ll take it easy today. And I need to fit in some school work today too…. I’ll be back after dinner 8)
