We survived

So like always the meteorologist blew this storm way out of proportion. However it was so fricking cold we could not go to a park or do anything outside. Come on mother nature it is April not December. We went to Chick-fil-a and played for long while and I loved eating my chicken biscuits and sipped a diet lemonade. We rented Marley & Me and came home and watched it. That movie made me cry so hard. I cannot even blame hormones on that one.

Then I decided we love pancakes. I quit buying pancake mix and learned to make them from scratch. I also bought whole wheat flour instead of white flour and OMFG they were so good. I am determined now to make even more things from scratch. It is healthier and a heck lot cheaper. Here is the recipe for them
1.5 cups whole wheat flour
1 tbs baking powder
1 tbs vanilla
1/4 cup splenda
1 whole egg 3 egg whites
1.5 cup of skim milk

Blend all ingredients. Cook on griddle preheated on medium. Yeilds about 15 pancakes.

Right now we are going to curl on the couch and play some wii. I guess my grandfather is about to pass but I will not be attending his funeral. I do not have the patience or time to deal with them right now. I pray they will survive but that is all.

So our weekend so far has been pretty tame. But we are enjoying it. Hope everyone else is having a good one too.

You go, mama, makin' that food from scratch!!! Those pancakes sound good! I might have to get adventurous and try making some more things from scratch, too. Amen to it being cheaper! :)

I'm so jealous you guys have a Chick-Fil-A. I've had it once in my entire life (driving through Texas at the time) and I loved it. The fries were amazing! The closest one here in an HOUR away! Ugh!

Take care!!
