Pass me that pancake, please!


I had the best intentions this morning. Really, I did! We woke up bright and early for a volunteer project that involved making repairs to houses in a low-income community. Even the gloomy skies didn't deter us. However, when we were five minutes away from our destination, we found out the project had been canceled due to the inclement weather. Sigh. No brownie points for me today! So instead of spending the morning armed with hammers, wrenches and nails, my volunteer crew headed to a local diner for some breakfast goodies. I typically stick with eggs and bacon, but today, I caved and ordered a short stack of pancakes with caramelized bananas and toasted pecans. How friggin' yummy does that sound??! It was delicious and, I'm sure, pretty high in fat and calories. Sigh. I'll have to do an extra zumba class later to work off the meal. Fortunately for all of my loyal followers, I just discovered a low-calorie, sucralose-sweetened recipe variation on Splenda.com. Enjoy and have a wonderful, hopefully rain-free weekend!
