Should be making dinner

Well, it is about 5:00, dave comes home soon, Corrina is napping, and i am bloggin away my time. Yes, i should be lovingly preparing dinner for my sweet husband so i can lavish him with food and kisses when he comes in the door, but i simply am not that kind of woman. Tonight i am going to call on him to help me out, which he does without a fuss because he loves to make food too! And besides, i like sharing! Usualy by the end of the day i have run out of "clean house, and cook" type energy, and just want to visit, or play games, or watch movies, etc... tonight it just hit a little earlier! I did make some lovely bread pudding, with raisin bread and apples, (lonelyspoons cookbook. If you don't have them, get em'! Best brownies recipie too, with very little fat!) for dessert/breakfast, so i have half make food for tonight! Aww well.

Here is a recipie for you:

Healthy Pancakes (from vegitarian cooking for dumbies.. i think.. but could be very wrong.. anyway, courtesy of Sarah L)
1 c. whole wheat flour
1/2 c. white flr
1/3 c. wheat germ
1 tsp bk soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 TBsp bk powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 3/4 c. skim milk
1/4 c. olive/veg oil
1 egg
2 egg white(beaten till they form stiff peaks)

*measure dry ingrediants into Med. sized bowl
*add milk, oil, whole egg and stir well using a whisk. Break up chunks of flour with back of spoon
*fold in egg whites with wooden spoon
*batter will be thick, but light and somewhat foamy
* cook as usual

We really enjoyed these pancakes! Lots of flavour, and very fluffy! Hhhm, they would be great transformed into banana pancakes, or pumpkim pancakes too (just add a little less milk). If you are a proffessional pancake mixer/maker, sometimes you can fudge with the recipie so you don't have to add so much oil. I used to be able to do this and still mix everything right and come out with a great pancake, but i have lost my touch. Oh well! Enjoy

Oh, here is a picture of our dinner a few weeks ago: shepherds pie, but inside roasted squash! Very delicious (thanks martha kids!)
