Miss You, Too! PANCAKES!

This one's is just for you Doc Money, but in case anyone else is reading, you're welcome too.

This blog is about my life. And food. Specifically pancakes, I guess, but I'll get to that later. I got sick during 6th period last week. I would like to blame my snot-laden kids or some of my sick coworkers, but I also ate an m&m that fell on the floor recently and seem to think that riding my bike across the country and getting dirty has made me invulnerable to germs. That's clearly a lie. I slept a lot Friday night, felt somewhat better Saturday, and then felt great yesterday. Sweet. Then I got to 5th period today and lost my voice. I took some medicine to try to help my throat and get my voice back. I know, I know, I always claim that the only drug I do is alcohol, but this is different. It's for a girl.

You see, I met a woman on the interweb a week or two ago and am going on a date with her tomorrow. At least I hope I am. If I can't talk when I wake up tomorrow I may have to cancel which would totally suck. I'm hoping these drugs work- or that divine intervention saves my ass and gets me, uh, ass? That last comment probably sealed my fate. It's been 354 days. Not that I'm counting. Honestly I'm not- I just happen to remember the last time, because it happened after I decided to take an ill-fated nap on the train on my way back from Fort Worth the weekend before Halloween and just so happened to get stuck in a bad part of town- and by town I mean cities away from the city where I needed to be or public transportation that would help get me there.

Anyhow, I've taken to online dating as loyal readers know and sadly none of my dates and I have been right for each other. Well, the woman I'm meeting tomorrow sounds pretty cool, so here's hoping things go well. Come to think of it, maybe if I lose my voice it'll actually improve my chances!

So that's my life lately, Doc Money. Daxos is good. I carved a pumpkin on Saturday at my friend's pumpkin carving party. School's going pretty well. I recently e-mailed some professors and asked if they'd be willing to write me letters of recommendation for grad school, so I guess all in all things are pretty good.

Blueberry Pancakes



The following recipe I 100% copied and pasted from http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/good-old-fashioned-pancakes/detail.aspx:

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 1/4 cups milk
1 egg
3 tablespoons butter, melted
Directions

In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg and melted butter; mix until smooth.
Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.


I would definitely cut back a little on the baking powder, but otherwise these were good. I took about 4 oz. of Frozen Blueberries, thawed them, and put them on the soggy side of the pancakes before flipping. This worked out well, but would've worked better had I first drained the bag of liquid. They were still good, though. Serve with Pure Maple Syrup and Orange Juice or Milk.
