Banana Pancakes + Presidents

Last night’s dinner was pretty unremarkable. I had “made” some salsa and just put that on top of a spinach salad with some balsamic. And by “made” I mean I opened a can of diced tomatoes, a can of black beans, and a corn of corn, mixed it all together and called it good.

Oh and James added some chopped up red onion and garlic pepper/salt. Easy and good. James, Tomas and I dug into this yumo-riffic salsa with some un-pictured chips (woops!).

We then went to the local  pub (where after 3 times of going James already has his name known) and the guys got some wings. And let me tell you, the buffalo sauce on those wings is SO GOOD! I sopped as much of it up as I could with the puny celery sticks they put on the side. Anyone have a good buffalo sauce recommendation/recipe??

Tomas crashed at our place and when we got up I knew it was Banana Pancake time. Kind of like peanut butter jelly time, but without the cool dance accompaniment. I’ll have to work on that.

I snacked on some of these while I got crack-a-lackin:

I love these! And I also think it’s a genius way to not waste anything! Touché Trader Joe’s.

The boys started off with an appetizer of cinnamon rolls from a tube:

It looks like Tomas has a face of pain but I assure you it’s one of pure ecstasy.

I used the TJ’s Multigrain Pancake Mix to whip up these beauties using almond milk instead of milk and subbed one of the TBSP of oil for apple sauce.

I also cut up a granny smith apple and sautéed that in a lightly buttered pan with a tsp of brown sugar and cinnamon. It was delish!

Along with some defrosted mixed berries, a little taste of PB on one of em and some sliced mango. With Maple Syrup for dipping.

Heavenly.

These came out fluffier than I remembered! Could it be the almond milk??? Only using half the oil?? I guess we’ll never know. I enjoyed every bite while watching these handsome devils:

Nothing like some presidential action over breakfast. I always want to learn more about history but I feel like I’m terrible at retaining anything! I can’t even tell you which two presidents these are. I think I was just too distracted by the bananananan pancakes.  I’m okay with that.

My sister and her boyfriend get here in an hour and a half! yayayayayay!!!
