Afterwards, I took advantage of having a sitter & went to the yarn shop.
I had ordered Last Minute Knitted Gifts after hearing so many fellow bloggers say it was a must have book & I have to say, I was not disappointed.
(I know..I know... I'm that nerdy lady who gets a sitter to go yarn shopping. ha!)
Also in the photo above is the scarf I started making Maya last week
& some sweet pink Cascade yarn for a hat to match for my super sweet girl.
Rivers hat in progress.

How can that be?
Oh my goodness..I love him so.
Old Fashioned Pancakes
(from The New Laurel's Kitchen)
2 c. whole wheat flour
1/2 c. wheat germ
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp. sea salt
2 large eggs
2 1/2 - 3 c. organic milk (or soy, rice, almond, coconut milk)
2 tbsp. oil
Stir together the dry ingredients.
Beat the eggs & add to the milk.
Mix into the dry ingredients, stirring briefly & add the oil.
Cook on the hot griddle.
That's it...the basic recipe.
I like to keep a mixture of the dry ingredients on hand for quick breakfasts
but we rarely make them plain following just this recipe.
A lot of the time I add a tsp. of vanilla or almond extract to the wet ingredients.
These are great with..
~ a handful of blueberries thrown in (fresh or frozen),
~fresh raspberries & chocolate chips..yum.
~ Thin sliced bananas laid on the pancake right after it is poured on the griddle..mmm..along with a dash of fresh vanilla bean and chopped walnuts in the batter.
~ with cinnamon, fresh nutmeg, grated ginger & thinly sliced apples laid over the pancake after it's poured on the griddle..ooohhh lala
~ with the same added spices as above but grating the apple & adding a handful of raisins..
~ chocolate or carob chips & dried cherries..
~ plain with Amish butter, jam, yogurt, apple butter, honey, fresh fruit...etc...on top.
