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.


Me slicing away at a banana and sipping a Pom spritzer (yup I’m obsessed with these now)


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.



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!!!
