Do you have a case of the Monday’s?
Did it rain all day where you are?
Did you miss today’s run?
If you answered yes to any or all three questions than I feel your pain.
In an effort to cheer up my mood I searched for the brightest plate, mug, and place mat I could find. Once I had the dishes in place I played around in the kitchen and ended up trying a new recipe. I originally reached for the pancake mix, but to my surprise I only had a about 1/2 cup kodiac cake mix [not enough to go around]. After digging in my pantry I found a bag of Bob’s Red Mill Oat Flour with a recipe on the back for OATMEAL PANCAKES!!!
They take a bit more time and effort to make, but you can always make them the night before and store them in the refrigerator. They can easily be reheated in a microwave for a quick grab and go breakfast. If you have the time to make a batch during the weekend layer them between parchment paper and store in a zip-lock back in the freezer.
