Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes & Stuff

I've been neglecting the ol' blog again. The cloudy Winter months tend to put me into a semi-funk, but I've been getting back into running again---it's been a couple years! I'm doing the Couch to 5K again, but this time, I'm using the Running Mate podcast, which I love! It's got some funny electronica (?) music & the host, Todd, is super motivational. Now I'm able to jog for 12 minutes at a go. :) Here I come, week 7! (A couple of friends are doing it too, but we're on different weeks.)

Ethan & I found some roller skates for me, & roller blades for him, at Goodwill. So fun. I'll spare you the pictures though. Let me tell you that roller skating in the apartment, after a 20-year hiatus, was a blast!!!

Yesterday morning, it was actually (temporarily) sunny here, so I made pancakes for us. They're a rare treat, mostly because I don't like standing around waiting for all of them to cook. The half batch is your friend, by the way. I used this recipe, & added some frozen blueberries. Mmmmmm...

Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 tablespoons cooled, melted butter
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
Get your cast iron pan going. Everyone should know their stove's ~*special pancake temperature*~. Ours is one notch below medium.

Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, & salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the center, & add the egg, butter, & buttermilk. Whisk everything together, but don't over-mix! Perfect, fluffy pancakes are the result of semi-lumpy batter, trust me. Fold in the blueberries.

Add a little butter to your skillet, spread it around, then pour some batter on that. Flip it when you see bubbles coming up through the pancake. Cook for another minute or so, then eat it up! Repeat till batter is gone, or you are tired of making pancakes.

I have so many people with February birthdays, so I got a couple new stamp sets & made this card for a few of them. There was a blue version too, but I didn't take pics. Robo-luv...

I finally finished my Feet Eaters too!

They are so damned cute. I want to make some for others, but all the finishing wore me out. I don't like sewing on little tidbits, even when the resulting product is awesome. Maybe after a break though...

Happy crafting!
