A Good Laugh with Dinner

33

Hi all!

I made it through the day! I was in the “fog-zone” for portions of it, but all in all it wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be. I even got out for a lunch time walk, which was just as gorgeous as yesterday’s was. :D

PS PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE’S ARE CURRENTLY IN A STARBUCKS NEAR YOU!

I just remembered that and had to get it out there before I forgot :)

SO – I’ve been anxiously awaiting tonight’s dinner since I picked up that container of ricotta cheese last week. Ricotta haters, don’t leave – you can make tonight’s dinner without it – Blueberry Ricotta Pancakes!

I actually started laughing like a maniac when I put this all together…I mean – LOOK AT THAT!

All I did was take a serving of pancake mix, to which I added a quarter cup of ricotta cheese, 1 tsp sugar, a handful of blueberries and cooked as usual.

Topped with another dollop of lightly sweetened ricotta, a sprinkling of fresh blueberries and a drizzle of syrup – this was DECADENT! The ricotta cheese added a creamy, richness that cannot be beat.

Here’s the kicker – how would you like it if I told you this entire plate o’ deliciousness clocked in at under 350 calories? I am not lying to you, I promise. I’m a terrible liar…even over the Internet…

If you ever make these, beware – hot, bursting blueberries are just that. Hot bursting blueberries! Those babies are like little volcanoes ready to shoot out delicious, blue lava!

Oh man, these were just plain FUN to eat. Who doesn’t like a plate of pancakes piled high, jam packed with blueberries and fluffed with ricotta cheese?! SO GOOD!

I am happy, full and going to sleep like a little blueberry angel tonight 0:D

How do you like your pancakes or waffles? With fruit, without, with syrup or powdered sugar?

To be honest, I didn’t even like pancakes when I was little – I was more of a French Toast gal (cough, high maintenance, cough…) :D Thankfully, I had a Mom and Dad who always obliged :)

Edited to add: Thanks to my dear Dad for power washing my entire house in preparation for painting it this weekend – he was soaked, but was glad to do it. Thanks Pops!!


3:30 Wakeup Call

Mornin’! Well, I’m a wee bit exhausted this morning :( I woke up at 3:30 with a wicked allergy attack – sneezing, wheezing – the whole 9 yards. I didn’t get back to sleep until 5:30ish and before I knew it, I HAD to get up for work! Oh, life……
