But first, I have to show you how awesome my dad is!

Yep, that's a brussel sprout tree!  I'm sure you can guess what I had for lunch today ;)  
Thanks so much dad!  I love the brussels and you!


Now, onto the pancakes!  I've playing around with zucchini pancakes, and I think I've finally got it!  


Zucchini Pancakes

Ingredients:
1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/4 cup rolled oats
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
Stevia (or other sweetener) to taste
1/3 cup finely grated zucchini
Pinch lemon zest
1 egg (or flax egg or other vegan egg replacer)
6 tablespoon almond milk

Directions:
Combine the flour, oats, baking powder, spices and stevia in a mixing bowl.

Add the remaining ingredients and mix away!

Now, your camera will die on you, and you will desperately race up the stairs to find your mom's camera.  You will soon find out that your mom's camera is dead too, and so you will search for your dad's camera.  Once you fail at that, you will realize that you're to hungry to care about pictures and proceed with making your pancakes. 
Once your batter is all mixed, pour 1/4 cup increments of batter onto a heated, nonstick skillet.  Cook until both sides are golden brown.

I was about to dig in when I remembered something - I could use Photobooth to take pictures of my pancakes.  I didn't think they would turn out well, but they actually looked pretty decent!

What a twisted breakfast ;)

Sometimes, not having something only pushes you to get more creative!  And now, I can safely say that these pancakes are delicious cold :)


Oh, I've updated my about page!  Check it out if you get a chance!


The daily question:  Has your camera ever died on you in the middle of taking pictures? What did you do?

I love your pancakes' trip to Hawaii! :)

I hate it when my camera dies on me. I was at the zoo the other day, and my baterries ran out; my parents lovingly bought me some more batteries; I used those up pretty quickly too. What I have learned: keep lots of extra batteries on hand. Did your camera die-die, or did the batteries just go caput?

Kathleen,

Just the battery - luckily!
I'm so sorry that your battery ran out at the zoo :( I need to remember to take extra batteries with me next time I go somewhere with my camera - great idea!

Kristina,

Cameras are one of those things that you can't live without but are terrible to live with! :)
