Pancakes / Snowman and PARTY

This morning as almost every Saturday morning we made pancakes; except for I tried a new recipe (our typical recipe calls for yogurt and we were all out - kids gobbled it up in a smoothie on Tuesday). I found a great recipe on All Recipes that I think is now my new typical recipe. These were awsome. I changed a few things in the the original recipe:

Fluffy Pancakes with Wheat Germ and Applesauce


  • 1 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup wheat germ
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 4egg whites
  • 1/2 cup rice milk, or as needed (I probably added an extra 1/4 cup)
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil


  1. In a large bowl, stir together the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, wheat germ, and baking powder. Make a well in the center, and stir in the egg yolks, oil and rice milk until fairly smooth. If the batter seems too thick, stir in more milk. In a separate bowl, whip the egg whites with an electric mixer to soft peaks. Fold egg whites into the batter, just until blended.
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Scoop large spoonfuls of batter onto the hot pan, and fry until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip and cook until browned on the other side. Continue with remaining batter.


Today was C Monster's 2nd Birthday Party (He will be 2 on Monday) - Minus me dropping the cupcakes (they were all fine) and Geoff backing up into our fence (I am not sure if it will be fine - need to wait till the snow is melted to assess the damage) the day was fantastic.

The Party was at SH Armstrong a local Community Center. The kids had time to play in the gym; then after we had a music class led by our favorite teacher Eva from Music for Life. All the fun was followed by pizza and cupcakes - oh so yummy.

For your viewing pleasure some pictures from the C Monster's big event:

Thank you everyone for coming and check in during the next few days for some pictures taken by Geoff.
