Unless of course said pancakes and waffles come from the freezer section.
Then I discovered Bruces's Sweet Potato Pancake mix (thanks to the lady behind me in HEB unloading lots of healthy food onto the conveyor belt next to my friends Ben & Jerry.)
This morning I asked my people if anyone wanted a sweet potato pancake and my people firmly declined.
Not to be deterred, I stayed the course, heated my skillet, added water, poured the batter and prepared to flip my pancake.
I felt so Holly Homemaker.
Except I almost burned the first one.
Obviously there is a pancake learning curve.
After my root vegetable creations were sitting on their plate, dusted not-so-lightly with powdered sugar, my little person wandered in to investigate.
And conduct a taste taste (note missing pancake portion in above photo).
And then politely ask for her own sweet potato pancake because they were the best things she had ever tasted.
And then ask if I could make them for her before school too.
I guess I will be a pancake mom after all.
But only if they are sweet potato pancakes.
Have you ever eaten sweet potato pancakes? Would a griddle make for a better pancake experience? (I only have a skillet) Do you make pancakes often?
